I absolutely love book covers and the process of getting a client’s cover to the final stages. When the email comes with the cover drafts attached, I’m always excited. Sometimes the covers aren’t ready yet, but then my client and I are able to offer some feedback for possible changes. This is one of the reasons you want to have an agent. Some publishing houses don’t want authors to have a say in their cover designs, but an agent can negotiate this into the contract. I’d say that close to 100% (if not 100%) of our clients get to weigh in with an opinion on their covers.
Here are some covers for upcoming releases that I have represented… (be sure to scroll down for some discussion!)
There’s no way I could pick a favorite because I love them all. 🙂
Which of the above covers is the most eye-catching to you? Why do you think that is?
Which one did you look at the longest? Why?
Have you ever had a bad book cover experience with one of your books? (Don’t mention the title or publisher, please!)
Do you have a cover that you are especially proud of? (Feel free to post a link to your webpage so we can see it!)
