Book Cover Design

This month brought several challenges working with my graphic designer Blake Brasor on my next poetry book: After the Storm: Poetry That Refreshes the Soul.  I wanted to share questions that came up during a phone call with him on designing the book cover:

-How did you come up with your title?

-Are there any major themes, reoccurring elements, or symbolism in your story?

-What type of person do you think would be most interested in your book? 

-What is the main focal point of your book?

After answering these questions Blake will be able to sketch and brainstorm cover ideas for my book. I hope these questions help you in creating your book cover!
