My Dear Future Readers,
Today I want to talk to you about something fun. Covers. Book cover reveals. It’s true that my book isn’t out yet and doesn’t have a cover yet. But that does not mean I can’t talk about it.
My friend, Jessica McCrory already published eight books. The Runner’s Daughter was just published on February 15th. I helped her with the cover reveal.
You may be wondering what is,a,cover reveal? I’ll tell you.
Lesson # 18: Cover Reveals
A cover reveal is a special day when an author gets the chance to show everyone the new cover for their new book. Some authors ask for help from other authors to help spread the word about the new Cover. I did it for Jessica McCrory and to be honest, I really enjoyed it. I got a chance to use this blog in a new way.
I learned that besides the actual publication of a book, the cover reveal is a very exciting day in the publication process. The cover of the book is like the face of a person…every face is different and yet it has to be attractive enough for another person to stop and talk to you or buy a book. Which is why it is important to have a good cover.
I also think that the cover of a book distinguishes your book from other books. Every cover just like every author is different. The reader should be intrigued by the book cover enough to buy the book. It is important to know what you want on your cover before it comes time to put the cover on. The author’s wishes are the most important.
Don’t let anyone decide for you. Decide for yourself!!!
Remember that your cover and content define you from day one. It is up to you to write your best. Be your best. Write what you believe in.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.
