April Speaker - Kris Lynn Packaging Your Story - Book Covers and other graphics for authors

It’s really all about the story!

Great Cover Art takes a story concept and makes it visible –

thousands of words are represented by one picture on the cover.

What goes into designing graphics for authors? How does a graphic designer approach making book covers? Author and Graphic Artist, and fellow Sister-in-Crime, Kris Lynn, discusses this and more about designing products for the written word.

  • Defining the essence of the story

  • Working with the author’s ideas.

  • Identifying imagery that speaks to the story and inspires the author – and therefore informs the reader. The author needs to feel excited about having that cover represent her/his book.

  • Final design and preparation for publication. A few tricks of the trade.
