Before I start work on to the second draft, it’s worth mentioning one last thing about book covers. And that thing is THUMBNAILS.
Specifically, the importance of the cover title being legible when it is displayed on Amazon as in the following mock-up:
As you can see (if you click on this image to open it full-size) both the title and author name are perfectly legible and clear. Not only that, but it’s even just readable in the mini-thumbnail beneath. Kind of.
For now, I’m happy with that cover, so now it’s time for draft two!
