The Job of a Book Cover (and How to Get One that SELLS!)

You’ve heard this many times here: They say you can’t judge a book by its cover … but book shoppers always do. Always.

Like it or not, readers have little to go on, other than first impressions, as they pare down thousands of book choices to the few they wish to explore further. That means your cover may well be the single most powerful marketing and selling tool in your arsenal.

An eye-catching professional cover design has a huge job to do. It must entice the specific readers you’re after, instantly. It must make them want to take a closer look at what’s inside. Once you’ve attracted the right audience, your cover must also impart vital information about your book at a glance: genre and content, tone or mood, and even the quality of the writing itself. If your book cover does all that, your audience is more likely to buy.
