I buy a lot of books. And I mean a lot. One of the first things I notice before even making a purchase, and this is especially true of a new author, or an author I’ve never read before, is the cover. I know the old adage goes You can’t judge a book by it’s cover…GIT YO LIFE. Admittedly, there are some hidden gems in a shitty or lackluster cover, but to the consumer, it’s the like the icing on the cake. Pound cake is tasty, but a pound cake drizzled with lemon or vanilla icing is fucking heaven. If the cover is wack, I’m more than likely to pass on the book. If the cover is ooh-la-la, then I’m a 1-click trick…Lemme introduce you to the Queen of Covers: LaVerne Thompson(aka Ursula Sinclair)! I have purchased and read each and every one of these books because the cover screamed HOTNESS. BUY ME NOW! And so I did…And oh yeah, the books were actually good too.
