But with having these intentions, I am very intrigued when someone announces their intent to sp. I follow their journeys intently, making notes of what to do/not do. And I am super fascinated when it comes cover reveal time. I love covers. I mean, who of us doesn't? Covers are like crack to us book lovers. They give a glimpse of the world that's waiting within the pages. Covers are powerful. They either pull us in or push us back.
I cannot wait to one day craft my own cover. If I'm honest, this is one of the biggest draws for me when it comes to self-publishing. The thought of all that creative freedom...*shivers in delicious excitement* But then on the opposite end of the spectrum, I have to say the biggest detractor in sp for me is knowing that I'll be 100% responsible for my book finding even the tiniest of audiences. And it's scary to think that I could be investing money that I might not get back. Ack. But these worries are for another time and day.
Right now I'd like to turn your focus to several sp books recently released that I really like the covers for. These beauties definitely(for me) fall in the 'pull you in' spectrum.
