You must have a cover that grabs and be an author she knows as well or this reader will not buy your book. That's what I just read in a post from one of my e-mail lists. How does a little-known author get through to a potential reader with opinions like that? Are most readers unlikely to buy an author she/he doesn't know? That's discouraging news for an author trying hard to gain recognition and readership.
What characteristics do the best covers have in common? How do you attract readers if you are an unknown author? I would love to learn the views of others.
