…sum’times I read things which are so obvious yeez wonder why everybody misses them (including me!)… I’ve recently had the pleasure of meeting online a new pal, the Authoress, Lorraine Holloway-White… her contributions on a wall-post stream about whether or not it’s important for yeez to have a good cover page for yer masterpieces are priceless… with her gracious permission, here’s an extended version of those exchanges in which Lorraine draws the comparison between a good advertisement and a good ‘first-grab’ presentation of yer books…

The five components of a good ad and how they relate to a book and book cover are :-

Second – Illustration or photo – artwork

Third -Good sub headline – blurb

Fourth -Good body copy – actual story or book content

Last – Details of where to buy it-and/or author’s name
