Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes I do. I was about 9 - 10 years old. A book written by Richard Halliburton, "Seven League Boots". He was a member of The Explorer's Club, with other famous members like Peary, Lowell Thomas,and many others. He climbed the Matterhorn, he swam in the pool at the Taj Mahal. Very impressive. I'm sure that it spurred me to travel much around our world.
How do you approach cover design?
As an experinced ad-man and marketer,I know that the cover of book is a "Billboard" advertising what is inside for the reader. If the story doesn't deliver on the premise of the cover the reader will feel cheated. If the cover doesn't grab the attention and interest of the reader; excite curiosity, it isn't doing the job. I work with artists to produce my covers for each book, whether fiction, or non-fiction. No stock-photos..
