This past week, artist Lee Moyer and I lunched at Portland’s Veritable Quandary to discuss cover art for my next two books. Spending time with Lee is always a treat—he can converse brilliantly on a wide range of subjects—but he is never more in his element than when he’s talking about art.

At that lunch, Lee dissected of the covers of my first two books—what worked, what didn’t work, and the ways in which the cover design likely helped sales on the first book (and possibly hindered the sales on the second!)

Anyway, Lee has put up a post on his own blog recapping that dissection. It’s fascinating reading for anyone who’s interested in the art and (marketing) science of creating book covers. Click on over and have a read!
