I admit pretty book covers intrigue me. If I’m wandering through bookstore shelves or skimming through my copy of RT Book Reviews Magazine, I always stop at the pretty covers. In the past ten years I’ve been chatting books I’ve noticed that the prettier the books the bigger the marketing push by the publisher. Bethany House has went out their way to promote Julie Klassen’s upcoming title. So now I wonder whether book cover design is a tip off as to what books the publisher feels confident about. I further wonder, does great storytelling beget a great book cover or great grasp of what readers want beget a great book cover. After all, Julie is one of the best writers I know. She is also an editor for Bethany House. Hm….
