In the last post, I briefly touched on bookcover design based on what grabs a reader’s attention. How what we as readers find aesthetically pleasing piques our interest about the book itself. Basically, the bookcover design serves as the gateway to the possible acquisition of the product, the book.
However, what happens when this time around you’re not the reader? After plugging away at your manuscript(s), whether it is fiction, non-fiction, literary fiction or historical fiction , poetry, ect. , your work has been accepted for publication. You are about to become a debut author and with all the marketing, promotion, editing/revision process, all of these are no less important that how you’re going to present your work to the public. What face should you give it?
