is there a book cover hell?? I think I have spent way, way, wayyyyy too many hours browsing stock photo sites, mocking up book covers on photoshop and scrolling through hundreds of fonts, but I know it will be all be worth it in the end when I have a pretty, pretty book cover! I have the capabilities to make a rockin’ book cover for my upcoming YA novel, Merch Girl, and I’m not stopping till I find THE PERFECT photo and fonts!
Should I post my final mock cover on here before purchasing the photo for your opinions, or does that ruin the surprise? Has anyone else out there created their own book cover, and if so, how did you come to the decision on what worked for your book?
I’ve been searching through various photo sites looking for the perfect photo for the cover of my upcoming book, Merch Girls. I can’t find any “real people” photos that fit the mold of who my characters are, but I found one really interesting illustration. It has bright colors and I think it will draw the reader in, even when it’s the tiny Amazon thumbnail size. Do you think people gravitate towards book covers with actual people on them, or are illustrations just as attractive? Sometimes I think it’s better to picture the characters in your head rather than having an actual reference, but maybe that’s just me. Discuss! 🙂
