Carin Kilby Clark on Book Covers & Readers #AmReading #AmWriting #NonFiction

We’ve all heard the quote, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” But the reality is, just about every book is judged by its cover. And how could it not be – it’s the first thing you see and it’s what peaks your interest to look at additional details and determine if you want to buy or read the book.
Many times, the cover alone is what prompts a reader to purchase the book. No matter how you look at it, book covers matter. There’s tons of research to support buyers’ decisions to purchase a book based solely on the cover. There’s also a link between the cover, and the expectations readers form based on  the cover image(s).
Your cover sets the stage for what the reader can expect and is a major part of the book buying decision. It’s something that you absolutely must put effort into to make sure it’s an accurate and attractive representation of your writing.
Here are three reasons why book covers are so important:
1) Book covers help readers make an informed decision. If your book cover is truly representative of the contents of your writing, then the book cover can be beneficial in helping the reader decide if the book will be worthwhile. Making sure your cover is related to the story, and is attractive to potential buyers, who are interested in that genre, is key.
2) Book covers are part of the readers’ overall impression of the book. You could write the most outstanding book ever, but if it’s cover is subpar, the book won’t be remembered for its stellar content. Instead, readers will recall the lackluster cover instead of your brilliant writing. Do your research and find out what readers are interested in, and design the most appealing cover you can dream up.
3) Book covers are your book’s first impression. We all know how important first impressions are. The book cover is your book’s first impression. You need to make sure that positive impact is made right up front. If your book cover does its job, you will certainly sell more books; and you’ll have many happy readers promoting your book through word-of-mouth.
