Sorry I was a little late posting this one.
My amazing 1994 Suzuki Swift broke down last night (Yes, that’s a car, not a dirt bike). It took me and a couple of amazing friends a while to diagnose the problem (which means we still have no idea--at least I don't) and tow it home. I still think it’s so strange that a 1994 car would break down (Did the sarcastic font come through?).
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about book covers lately—what I like, and what I don’t. What captures my attention and what doesn’t. I write middle-grade, so obviously, I’ve been thinking about that group. Here are a few that I think just work.
I love high concept ideas that grab my attention, but sometimes a simple cover, like Leven Thumps, works for me.
Any other favorites you’d like to share? Any that just bother you?
Do you like simple or complex?
I'd love to hear your ideas.
