The cover is the gift wrapped package...
Will the front cover draw them to the book? Do the colors instill feelings of the genre? Does your name pop out? Does your title pop out? When this cover is on line (shrunk down), can someone still read it and see the images? When they turn it over, is the back part of the front...do they belong together? Will the words on the back make them want to read it? When they open the book, does the mini-synopsis entice them? What about the information about the author. Does your bio make someone want to know you? Read your book? Buy more? There is so much going into the cover. Of course it's the content that will keep them reading and make them come back. But the cover is what will entice them to pick up the book.
TEXT on the BACK
Flight For Control is a fascinating debut and a truly terrifying insider's take on the airline industry by an author who knows what she's talking about. You will not want to get on an airplane after reading Petitt's book.
Mike Lawson—Author of The Political Thriller of the Year
House Divided, House Secrets and House Justice
“A strong debut with a complex plot that keeps the reader guessing until the very end.”
Robert Dugoni—Lawyer and New York Times Bestselling Author of fiction
The Jury Master, Cyanide Canary, and Damage Control
“Flight for Control is a powerhouse debut novel. Karlene Petitt combines her insider knowledge of the airline industry with her impressive writing skills to create a spellbinding thriller. Why did Flight 39 crash? Could there be more to these air disasters than meets the eye? And what can Kathryn do about it? I was hooked on the first page and never stopped reading till it was over.”
