Lucas and his Long Loopy Laces

Did you design the cover?
I did the layout of the front and back covers, but I did not create
the cover illustration.

Did your publisher design the cover?
Technically, I am the publisher!

Did you get to give any input about the cover design?
I worked with my wonderful illustrator, Cody Frusher. We tried a couple of options before we settled on this one.

Is there an interesting story behind the cover design? If so, please
share the details.
At first we tried using normal text for the title, but we quickly
realized that since the laces were the highlight of the story, it only
made sense to feature them in the title text.

Who is the cover artist?
Cody Frusher, the book's illustrator, also did the cover illustration.

Are you happy with the cover?
I love the cover!

If not, what would you change and why?
Absolutely nothing.

Tell us what you think is the best part of the cover.
The book itself has black and white pen illustrations, and the only
color is Lucas' laces as they tangle around everything he meets. Not
only does the cover hint what the book is about, but by being black
and white with simple line illustrations, I think it really stands out
on the book shelf.

Please provide your website link.

What is the link to buy your book?
