This series is not about what goes into a good cover for an ebook or a print. There are entire books written on the topic. And if you are with a publisher, you probably won’t have the final word as to the cover design.
What I am trying to do is to help you the author organize your thoughts and provide a tool for the cover design. For those on the indie-published route or whose publishers don’t provide such a form, a Cover Art Sheet is available at http://www.joycescarbrough.com/index.html. Just click on the writers resources tab.
The inset shows the thoughts generated by the form for Dragon Destiny as envisioned by Fantasia Frog Designs.
