Crossing 13 by Carrie Stark Hugus

Did you design the cover? No.

Did your publisher design the cover? No, my printer designed the cover.

Did you get to give any input about the cover design? Yes.

Is there an interesting story behind the cover design? If so, please share the details. Yes, I wanted a fall setting since the setting of the story begins on October 13. I also suggested the picture of a bridge to represent “crossing.”

Are you happy with the cover? Yes and no.

If not, what would you change and why? The primary market is teens and I don’t think the cover is attracting that market.

Tell us what you think is the best part of the cover. The fall leaves. Fall is a strong metaphor for my book; representing change, death, transformation and the actual month the story takes place.

Is there anything else about your cover that we need to know? Feel free to share. The title CROSSING 13 represents the date, October 13, and the age I was, 13-years-old, when my father died from suicide.

Please provide your website link.

What is the link to buy your book?

Thank you for the opportunity!
