Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Anything and Everything! I am an extremely curious person, so I may read a romance about BDSM one day, then read a nonfiction on how to play the guitar the next day. I love the fact that the romance genre has exploded with variations on the theme. Paranormal, comedy, dark, erotic, MC, billionaires, etc. Then we add all the self-published other genres and it's a cornucopia of treats for a bibliophile like me!
How do you approach cover design?
With a whip and a chair!! No, really, I have an idea in mind and I'm lucky that my editor's company also does cover design. I tell her what I want or send a photo idea and she runs with it! I do try to NOT put faces on my covers. The reader develops an idea of how he/she wants the main characters to look and that adds to their overall satisfaction with the novel experience. In most cases, my covers represent a scene or some symbolism within the book.
