Cover, cover, cover – who knew when I entered writing mystery novels as my work, I would spend so much time looking at mock-ups for a novel’s cover; I didn’t. I thought writing a blurb about my book was a difficult process. Difficult because I’m trying to say in less than thirty words a picture of the plot and characters. Then, my photographer son would say, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
Ah, but choosing a picture, drawing, or graphic to woo the reader to read the contents, well, it is just as difficult. There is our Beryl Kent and she is a lady of beauty and distinction and of a certain age. She is the victim of an injured man who knocks her over bleeding all over her. I have just viewed a plethora of ideas. Most are interesting, come are truly creative, and bits and pieces must be moved to firm up my view for my cover. Don’t question why I don’t just accept a good cover by a good designer. Remember it is my work and I must be true to it.
Reader look for it soon. Let me know if you like the cover.
