Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Actually, there were two first stories I recall reading, and they were both Golden Books: The Little Red Hen and The Little Engine that Could. I think they had an impact on my work ethic, personal initiative, and optimism.
How do you approach cover design?
The cover has to grab the reader's attention and reflect the content of the book. The first question I ask myself and the author is "who is your audience?" and then I read the book and picture myself as someone who is seeing it for the first time. Sometimes the author already has a vision for the cover; if so, I bring that to life, whether through original art or stock images that I manipulate until the cover says what it needs to in order to draw the reader in.
