Hear The Wind Blow by Janelle Dakota
We want you to share your book cover with us. An attractive cover is a big element in the appeal of your book.
We want the details about yours.
Did you design the cover? No, Press did.
Did your publisher design the cover? Yes.
Did you get to give any input about the cover design? We talked about the colors used on the cover and the fact that we both wanted the dragon on it.
Is there an interesting story behind the cover design? If so, please share the details. The dragon comes from the story, but he's only inferred, so having the dragon on the cover really signifies the fantasy aspect of the story.
Who is the cover artist? Karen Syed.
Are you happy with the cover? Yes! covers are always spectacular, and I'm very pleased with the cover of HEAR THE WIND BLOW.
If not, what would you change and why?
Tell us what you think is the best part of the cover. The dragon - he's there but not wholly there, just as he is in the story. It's perfect.
Is there anything else about your cover that we need to know? Feel free to share. The prairie signifies where the story takes place, specifically during a storm around the main character's childhood home. Reality shifts for Gwyn as the wind rages. The storm clouds on the cover, the dragon, the prairie; the combination of these three things places the reader immediately into the setting.
