Do you judge a book by its cover (even though the old saying says we shouldn't)? Chances are, your book buying decisions are determined by a lot of things. The author is probably number one, we all have our faves, and the blurb has a huge impact ( i recently wrote a blog on How to Write a Blurb at Savvy Authors and hundreds of people have read it). But let's face it, we're all influenced by a great cover and turned off by a bad one. One of my favorite MM romances of all time had a bad cover that kept me from reading it for over a year after i first saw it.
My paranormal romance, Spell Cat, has such a great cover (by Shobana Appavu) that i know a lot of people have bought it just because they can't resist the cover.The cover conjures the witchy paranormal quality of the story, includes Aloysius, the cat, who is a central character, and above all, features the supernaturally beautiful hero, Killian Barth. Since this cover is illustrated, Shobana could make him more gorgeous than real life.
What are some of your favorite covers? Is there one that made you buy a book?
