A lot of people are involved with the publication of a book. Not just a writer, but also beta readers, editors and a publisher.
And then there is a person who always gets way too less credit for his work. The cover artist.
You may think that it’s hard to write a story and paint pictures from your mind and soul for the people who read your story.
Well, how about trying to visualize something from someone else’s mind while also bringing your own heart into it! Because that’s what a cover artist does.
And while writers can use 200, 300, 400 pages to tell the story, a cover artist has to do it with just one single picture.
I got lucky, because I have the privilege to work with an amazing artist whose work I truly adore.
Meet the man responsible for the awesome covers of the Drägan Duma novels:
About 70% of my readers buy my books because of the covers.
Luckily, most of them also like the stories 😉
But the fact remains that Dominik’s artwork is the main reason why people buy my books.
It’s the first thing they see and only because of the beauty of the covers, they pick it up and read the back to see what the book is about.
Sometimes I worry a bit when I pitch an idea for a cover. After all, it’s in my head and that’s kinda hard to show to someone else. But then I remember: “Silly me, I work with Dominik!” 🙂
And he gets it right every time.
So, I want to thank this amazing artist who does one of the toughest jobs in the process of creating a book.
Dominik, you are truly awesome! 🙂
