Ta-dah! Welcome to the first look of the ‘Within’ book cover. Completed today by Peter at ‘Bespoke Book Covers’ I find myself at a loss for words (well, not completely, otherwise I wouldn’t be here, typing to you).
I had the pleasure of working with someone who genuinely ‘got’ what I was aiming for, and that’s no easy thing.
Our stories are our babies and trusting someone with our babies can be a heart-wrenching experience. So, to be able to give my book the best start in life, I knew I had to employ a professional designer. You don’t send your child off on its first day at school dressed in a hessian sack. Cue BespokeBookCovers.com; I cannot praise them enough. They listened to my vision, to the ideas I had rattling around my head and they made it real.
Let me know what you think. I know the effect I was looking for but we all have different perspectives; tell me yours.
It’s a sink or swim world out there and we do judge books by their covers, usually in about 10 seconds or less. 10 seconds to get it right, otherwise your pride and joy gets put back on the shelf and the reader walks away, none the wiser. The cover is not something you want to skimp on.
