Cover Reveal – Cassandra

Boy or Girl? That is what people want to know when you are pregnant. When you are publishing a book people want to know – what is the cover going to be like?

Being published by a small press like Odyssey Books meant I was perhaps more often consulted on potential covers than if I was published by a ‘big house’. We played around with a number of ideas. Odyssey takes great pride in their covers and many of them are designed by Rachel Roberts whose work can be seen at her website Pencil Pusher which is a great name for an artist’s site, right? It makes me think of someone intent on addicting people to art supplies.

I read somewhere that American readers prefer a photo of a person on their book covers and Australian readers do not. I can’t say where, so maybe it is not true. Book covers are the start of the story though. They are the first word before we even open them and turn to the first page. Here is the first word for Cassandra.
