Anonymity of protagonists
Many writers intentionally give very little physical description of their main characters. I have often asked what ‘Sarah’ looks likes only to find the author doesn’t really know. So if you really want to feature two characters on the cover you’re better not to show their faces. So this image is useful in that respect – unless one of the characters happens to be blonde.

Book cover design costs vary depending on whether it’s an ebook or paperback but around £80 ($100) is a good guide.
