Haven’t we all heard how important a good cover is in attracting readers? The theory being that a person has to first notice the cover, or pick the book up before the thought of purchasing even enters their thoughts.
And haven’t we all heard how a picture is worth a thousand words? Or, to a writer, perhaps thousands of book sales. And that’s where a good cover comes in.
I received these photos in an email with the message that the young reader in the photo discovered a copy of Trespassing On His Heart on her great-grandmother’s coffee table. ( We won’t discuss the quality of the iPhone pic’s )
The cover image caught her eye—that’s good, right? What follows is the ideal scenario to a writer. Miss Baylee is our young bookworm with the inquiring mind—and while a picture is worth a thousand words, actions speak even louder than words. Watch.
♥ The cover catches her eye . . . she reaches for the book. “May I?” she asks.
♥ Baylee studies the cover image . . . will she peek inside for a closer look?
♥ Hmm, she peeks, likes what she sees . . . and settles in for a satisfying read.
♥ Hours and hours later . . . the smile tells the story.
I was informed that this photo shoot was not staged, it happened unexpectedly and the iPhone was handy. I added the ‘Hours and hours’ for effect. 🙂
Thank you Baylee—you made me smile! 🙂 🙂 🙂
May you all have a wonderful day, and remember to keep God first in your plans—He knows what they are, and He cares.
Until next time—signing off with a 🙂
