What authors need to know about cover design

You can find short, detailed articles on all things book cover design here.  They’re designed to distill the information authors need about book covers into detailed, but bite-sized chunks. Hopefully I’ve kept them short enough to be easily read in a short sitting, but detailed enough to help authors  make good business decisions when they’re choosing a book cover.

Some articles focus on common mistakes or common misperceptions/mindsets that cause authors to make bad business decisions about their book cover, while other articles focus on important details authors need to know to choose a  book cover that’s right for their book or to help discover the information they need to give their designer so they can get a cover that will put their book into the hands of the right readers.
