Smashwords Interview

How do you approach cover design?
I approach a design by thinking about the type of book it is. I like to pick a cover that is paired well between cover and type of story it is. I believe the cover is the face of the book, if you have a catchy cover then then you're bound to have someone pick it up.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Hmm that's a really tough one honestly:

5) Shanghai Girls- because the author makes you feel like you are living in that story. I love goosebumps and this book gave me a ton of them.

4) Needful Things- Stephen King is the man of horror and his books are amazing. Every story has someone that is scarier then the next. I just loved this story, to this day I still think about it. I read it years ago.

3) Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn knocked this book out of the book for me. It was exceptional writing and it made me think.

2) IT - Do I really need to give a reason

1) The Winter Garden - I fell in love with this book the moment I laid eyes on it. It was beautiful and charming.
