Tuesday Poems For #Writers #Inspiration #WritingCommunity – Covers #Etheree

Another poem inspired by Lucy of Blonde Write More! Designing covers is a tough one.

Covering Covers

Are daunting
Who should design?
Or try your hand at it?
Stock photos or take your own?
Images or illustrations?
Which font to use? Is a tag line key?
Author name - big or small? Top or bottom?
Oh my goodness, that's just the front cover
The back has got as much to debate!
What really needs to be on there?
Just the blurb or something more?
Does it need my photo?
Keep it plain or not?
Will it engage?
What to do?
Oh, God!

    Publishing a book is a lot of work and decisions, isn’t it? Writing is only one part.
