Chances of the Heart Cover

I saw the cover of my new book this week. With very few tweaks, the romantic street--complete with the rolling hills of Tunkhannock--created the look I'd hoped for. Makes me think about a cover for my next book--whenever that will happen. I realize even more now the importance of a cover plays in the making of a book. A cover is what the reader first sees--before they turn it to the back and read that important blurb. Then come the first few paragraphs and maybe a riffle through the middle. Hmmm . . . will my cover make someone take the next step? Will it draw them to flip the book over or open to the first chapter?

Hi Terri, Funny you should mention the cover... I had an author in the bookstore the other day and we were discussing that very thing! The cover is SO important to grab a reader's attention. Then we added that the back of the book was where people looked next, THEN they open the book and glance inside. Keep up the great work! Patti
