Announcing a new cover for cozy mystery CAST THE FIRST STONE, the first Rebecca Stone story.
I read Martin Crosbie’s book “How I Sold 30,000 eBooks on Amazon’s Kindle” in which he talks about the importance of a cover.
Now I know about the importance of a cover, and I have previously changed covers of some of my other books. Yet it was Crosbie’s brief mention of people on the cover of a book that got me thinking.
While some of my fiction books do not have people on the cover, I decided that CAST THE FIRST STONE should have the figure of a woman. After all, the series is about newspaper reporter Rebecca Stone.
I searched for copyright-free photos I could buy on istock and bought the photo I had selected. Then I worked with the photo in Gimp — the free software similar to Photoshop. (Full disclosure: I did have some help resizing the photo to the scale needed.)
Of course, now I have to change the cover photo in various places on the web where the original cover appears, and some of these changes will be easier than others.
Still, a book cover is very important. Having the opportunity to change my book covers when I want to do so is a significant advantage to being an indie author.
