I try to ensure that the cover reflects the story it relates to. I know that it is petty, but there is nothing more annoying, for me, to discover that they don't match, eg. the story is about a blonde and the cover shows a brunette.
When did you first start writing?
I have been writing for quite a while now, but it is just over five years ago that I began to get serious. I confess that there is usually more that one story on the go at once, some can spend months, years even, without being touched again and not all of them get finished and published, but I find it easier that way. So if one piece of work is not flowing then I can move to a different one and make some progress, it helps me avoid the frustration of complete writers block. A lot of writers are escapists and for me it often feels a bit like going to visit different friends, or even enjoying an alternative life, for a short time, and you don’t even have to leave the house!
