As much as people like to say that we shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, the fact of the matter is that we very much do. In many respects, the cover is the most important way to attract readers, as a great cover that conveys your book’s genre, tone, and type of story will lead to readers taking a closer look at your book, one crucial step closer to actually buying it. And, of course, the key to a great cover is a great cover artist.
Yesterday, I joined author Brian Niemeier on Geek Gab: On the Books, to discuss finding a cover artist, and some other aspects of the cover art process.
And, to provide some context regarding each of our artists, check out the art of Marcelo Orsi Blanco, Brian’s cover artist,
and that of John Zeleznik, my cover artist.
And finally, as I mentioned in the podcast, John’s art looks even more awesome in print. You can pick up either the print, or the ebook version of my debut novel, A Greater Duty, right here.
