I've been extremely lucky in my writing career.
Two publishers. Two fabulous graphic artists.
Margaritas, Mayhem & Murder cover was designed by Ryan Thomas Doan for Imajin Books. The first time I saw it, I gasped. He sliced through the theme of the story with a creative knife. The bee blew me away.
Why, you ask? Read the book! 😊
My children's series, Cynthia's Attic - Echelon Press - was blessed to have Nathalie Moore. What a beautiful eye she has for colors and design! I love all five of the covers. This is the first.
What is your opinion of covers? Are you attracted to the cover, first? Do you pull a catchy cover off the shelf, then read the title? I happen to think they matter in this world of millions of authors and stories vying for millions of readers.
The release of the first (of many, I hope) Andi Anna Jones Mystery is coming, soon! You don't have to wait. Preorder, now!
And, it's already getting great reviews!
