Nailing the Book Cover (aka, Cover Magic)

Jennie Crusie, NYT Bestseller and writing goddess, has clout with her publisher. She can push for great covers and get people to listen--which is not always the case for a mid-lister, much less new authors. But three of her recent blog posts are terrific step-by-step info guides on what makes a great cover appropriate for your book AND the market. Two of the books were "romantic adventures" co-written with Bob Mayer, and so needed to display a different "take away" message than her romances.

Agnes and the Hitman
The Unfortunate Miss Fortunes
Don't Look Down
