I always wondered how much influence a writer has over their own book cover. A book cover is so important to its sales. It is the first impression a potential buyer has when they are searching for something to read in the book store.
When I wrote my science fiction novel Paradox, I developed the book cover that I want. Actually, I had the idea and my wife developed the cover. (Please note, we didn’t have the tools you need to make a polished cover, but this will give you an idea of what I am looking for.)
