Let Your Cover Sing

As writers, we want readers to love our book as much as we do, so it behooves us to give it the best possible cover that we can. Whether it’s designing one ourselves, purchasing a premade, or commissioning a custom cover, we want the cover to capture the reader’s attention. 

The cover helps us come to a conclusion about the content of that book. As readers, we want to know if the book fits our preferences for genre, tropes, even heat levels, and we trust the cover to tell us some of that information before we ever get to the blurb. 

This month, we have articles that will help you with all of those things. We also take a look at what it means to write a serial. And if you’re wanting to write Small Town Romances, we’ve got the perfect recipe to get you started.

Let your cover sing and spark the reader’s imagination of what the story within contains.


  • Robyn Sarty

    As a managing editor at Indie Author Magazine, Robyn Sarty brings over a decade of experience as an editor and proofreader. She is the author of two novels and several short stories, and manages her own publishing company. She loves helping other authors with their books and can often be found nerding out over story elements with her friends. She spent five years as a project coordinator for an international engineering firm, and now uses those skills to chase writers instead of engineers and hopes it will be good training for her first marathon. Growing up as a third culture kid, books were the one constant in her life, and as such, Robyn believes that books are portals to the magic that lies within, and authors are wielders of that magic. She also admits to being a staunch, loyal, and unabashed supporter of the Oxford comma.
