New Year New Cover

Yes. Annie has evolved. My debut novel, All About Annie, needed a lift. Some cosmetic surgery if you will. While some readers loved the cover, it seems too many thought the book was, shall we say, for the young adult market. Certainly it can be, but it's not my target audience. And I made the classic mistake every author makes their first time out self-publishing. And I thought well, what's done is done.

Nope. I rethought that. I have several copies of certain novels I love, each looks entirely different. What's inside remains the same. Wonderful stories. It's only the cover that changes.
I know, never judge a book by it's cover. Well, that's all fine and dandy, except readers most certainly do judge by the cover. I know this because I do it. I admit it. How shallow of me. To be clear, I don't judge people this way. The metaphor for me only applies to things.

So I am of course much happier with the new design. It speaks to me. It reflects the book in a unique way. And if you pay close attention to detail, you'll notice a little surprise on the cover for readers to smile knowingly and nod their head.

Haven't read it yet? Now's a good time to get your copy, and cozy up to a really fun read.
