The Great Cover Artist Search of 2012 has come to a conclusion, and I have found my cover artist! Renee Barratt, owner of The Cover Counts, will be designing the cover for Small Things. Renee is super-affordable (leaving me more money to buy stock and advertising,) has designed some really sharp covers, and comes highly recommended by best-selling author Connie Suttle.
I do think choosing the right cover is important, a cover that manages to convey something about the book while at the same time being eye-catching. I know I’ve chosen books solely based on the cover, and sometimes I’ve even liked the book itself. I can’t wait to see what Renee comes up with!
