Here’s the joy of working with a great cover design group like Deranged Doctor Design:

  • I say artist in Greece, they find images with sketches of Greece.
  • I say heroine’s favorite color is periwinkle;  they find a place to use it.
  • I say set in early 20th century;  they find a costumed model with a period-appropriate dress.
  •  I say beach; they give me a beach with a lovely sunset.
  • They actually gave me two cover options, one with a beached boat that had lovely colors . . . but no boat in this book.

Give your cover designer ideas but very little direction.  Trust the designer’s aesthetic.

Find a cover designer with your aesthetic;  my search took almost two years, which gave me time to focus on other writing.  The wait was useful: I published the first three books in the Hearts in Hazard series back to back, which I believe increased their sales.

The newest release in the Think like a Pro Writer is Discovering Sentence Craft.  For more information about the five books in the Discovering series, visit a Pillar Page with sample charts and pages and buy links at this link .  The Look Inside features on Amazon give previews of the books through their table of contents as well as the opening pages (all run together!  I cringe every time I see that set-up.  I do know what page breaks are, but they never appear on the Look Inside.)
