I'm Covered

My lovely friend, Holly Heisey, artist and author extraordinaire, recently requested some of her author friends to let her do mockups of their unpublished projects. Just for fun, and because I've been working on Homebody for such a long time, I quickly volunteered.

And did she do a marvelous job!

After a little back and forth and heavy discussion on the image I wanted to convey, this was the result:



So, what do you think? I know people say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but based on this alone (and maybe the little blurb on the right hand side of my blog), would you pick it up?


Until next time,

Looking at the book I wonder who is inside this house. Why are the police cars stationed right outside? The atmosphere is misty and cool of a Fall night; maybe even dreary and windy with creaking branches.. like "To Kill A Mockingbird". The mood is set...for what is to come inside the cover...

Well, anyway my imagination got away with me. I certainly don't know what is in this book.. but it was fun staring at this cover Liberty. Keep writing and get it done!!

This looks great, Liberty!

A cover won't sell me the book, but it can turn me off. This one fits the story perfectly and would help draw me in once the blurb hooked me.

This is really great. Your friend is talented.

I'm new to your blog. I just saw you today on Twitter. I like the cover. It would make me pick it up to read what the story was about. And that's where it all starts.

Thanks, everyone! I think Holly did a fantastic job, too. :) I'm so glad she's one of the staff artists for Port Yonder Press (and that I suggested her!)

@Orlando, thank you for stopping in at my blog and for the follow on Twitter. Hope I can make it worth your while to come back!
