While I hate to start a blog post off with a cliche, this one seems too fitting to pass up. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and I’d like to add that book covers are constant proof of that rule.
A well-designed cover can convey so much–anything from a mood or theme to the novel’s main conflict. I just love when I come across one that does a good job of this; in fact, a big part of why I started taking part in cover reveals was so that I could see more of them right off the bat.
The cover for L.C. Ireland’s Follow the Music is a great example of a cover that follows the “worth a thousand words” rule. Don’t believe me? Click on through to check it out–and to enter to win a copy of the book.
Don’t you just love it? It’s an utterly beautiful cover. Warm, light, and conveying a sense of magic, it matches the summary perfectly.
Before reading the summary, though, take a chance to enter a Rafflecopter giveaway; it could end with you winning an e-copy of the novel.
About the book
Ama is a talented, young musician whose life is changed forever when she is kidnapped by bandits and wounded so badly that she loses her hearing. Far from home and newly deafened, Ama discovers that the music she has been learning all her life possesses hidden powers. The music may even be powerful enough to guide Ama home … if she can learn to listen without hearing.
