Only Moments by Nick Oliva
Did you design the cover?Yes. I wanted to convey timelessness so I used my own photography from
Carmel and Big Sur.
Did your publisher design the cover?No, I laid out the criteria and they did a great job following through with it.
Did you get to give any input about the cover design?Total
Is there an interesting story behind the cover design? If so, please share the details.The front picture is Carmel CA in October of 1984. The back is Big Sur in 1994 that I took when I was out there writing the book.
Who is the cover artist?
I shot the photographs
Are you happy with the cover?Very pleased. I wouldn't change a thing.
If not, what would you change and why?nothing
Tell us what you think is the best part of the cover.I love the sunset and birds. It gives a glimpse of the eternal
Is there anything else about your cover that we need to know? Feel free to share.Nothing really. I am lucky I know what I want and I have a good sense of what is pleasing to most and what makes sense themwise to the book's general gestalt. I like those two words together. Sounds like a German army officer. Seriously, I think that the cover must relay a sense of what the book will convey to the reader once they've begun to read it. It helps to sell something with the desirability of the cover, as one plunks down hard cash just reading the back cover so it better look good and be verbally intriguing so Mr. or Ms. John Q. Public feels good about the purchase.
