A date for your diary…

So what is the first thing that people see when they buy a book off the shelf or choose an e book online? The front cover of course. So what makes a good front cover?

Firstly I hate the word ‘good’ so I apologise for using it. Let me re phrase that. What makes an enticing front cover? How do you get someone to even pick up a book or make that first click on an e book?
I made the decision to have my front cover designed pretty early on. As most of you know, I started writing my novel back in February. My front cover was complete by the end of April. Thanks to Kellie Dennis at ‘Book Cover by Design’, I have what I believe to be the perfect front cover. Having trawled through hundreds of images I stumbled across one which made me stop in my tracks. That’s where my trawling ended. I immediately knew that it had to take centre stage on my front cover and thanks to Kellie who somehow created an absolute masterpiece from this image, I cannot wait to see it go live. 
So… A date for your diary… What date goes hand in hand with a psychological thriller? None other than Halloween. So I will be releasing my front cover to the world on the 31st October. I hope you like it!
As always, thank you to all of my most recent followers. Your support means a great deal.
Watch this space… It’s almost time…
