Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read by myself, I believe was The Foot Book (Dr. Seuss). I was so enthralled that I could read the whole thing, that's all I did for a while.
How do you approach cover design?
I like to scale down the story to its most condensed form. It's tricky conveying genre, tone, plot, and character in a single image.

    Thanks for this wonderful advice. Nice and to the point!

    Light, short mystery. Kind of tried too hard to be funny in places. The stargazing toward the end took me out of the story a bit.
