Negative

It’s all in the title
Sometimes the title of a novel almost dictates the visual treatment you use. In this case it was obvious that a negative of a relevant scene would immediately create intrigue.

You’re always hoping that your cover will catch someone’s eye and make them pick up your book without an explanation of plot or genre. The cover is your first 5 second pitch at getting a new reader.

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