Do You Need a New Book Cover?

Do You Need a New Book Cover?

Have you ever considered a new book cover for your book? Do you think the cover doesn’t matter?

Read this story that a friend sent me recently:

I changed my cover art when my son, who had created the original art, was old enough to not have his feelings hurt. Overnight—with nothing but a new cover—the book began to sell more and more and more, and my sales figures kept rising. It kept creeping up the category list till Threads was in the top 10 for every category that displayed on its Amazon book page. On the U.K. site, it’s typically #1. All this happened after the book had been available for 10 years.
