Gotcha Covered: The Inside Scoop from High Hill Press on Creating Book Covers

Over on the High Hill Press blog, there's a post, "Peeking Under the Covers of High Hill Press."

In the informative August 31 post, publisher Louella Turner explains the importance of creating eye-catching book covers to entice readers and enhance book sales.

Lou discusses how High Hill Press creates these covers, taking into account  factors such as: the genre of the book, setting, time period, title, and other details.

The blog post features several book covers, three of which have a connection to members of  Coffee and Critique.

One of the highlighted covers is Baker Mountain, a YA novel written by Doyle Suit. Lou literally moved a mountain to create the image for Doyle's novel.

Two other books, Cactus Country III and Echoes of the Ozarks IX, have stories from several Coffee and Critique writers, including Marcia Gaye, Pat Wahler, Donna Volkenannt, Bill Mueller, Lou Turner, and others.

For an in-depth look at how these and other covers were created, visit the High Hill Press blog.
