Cover Art

It’s such a surreal thing to be designing the cover art for my upcoming book. But I’ve also realized something that shouldn’t have been surprising; it’s harder than I thought to convey the image in my mind to someone else.

I’ll describe the image down to the smallest detail, feeling confident that I’ll know exactly what the artist will create… only to see their design and feel completely shocked.

My first instinct was I’m a writer. I should be good at getting across the image in my head to someone else. But then I remember that every writer wants their readers to fill in some of the details for themselves, and that no two readers will likely have the same image in their head. Therefore, it shouldn’t be a shock for a cover artist to have a different vision in their head from what I’m describing.

But I will also say, when your cover comes together, and looks awesome, there is no greater feeling in the world. It’s become the background on my computer. I like to look at it and just think about the day I’ll actually be able to hold my book in my hands.

What an exciting time in my writing career!

What is your favorite book cover and why?
