Seriously Write: Designing Covers that Appeal to Both Men and Women by Carol Ashby

Sandra Ardoin @sandraardoin


We all know a visually stunning, genre-appropriate cover is essential for a potential reader to check out a book. But designing one can be a challenge when your target audience includes both men and women. 



Our guest on the Seriously Write blog today is Carol Ashby. Carol brings her experience in creating covers that won’t turn off male readers.

When you look at the covers, what do you see first? Especially for you men: do you think the four factors have broad application outside the historical genre? Can you share anything that’s a turn-off that might keep you from checking out the book description?

As an author of heartwarming historical and contemporary romance, Sandra Ardoin engages readers with page-turning stories of love and faith. Rarely out of reach of a book, she's also an armchair sports enthusiast, country music listener, and seldom says no to eating out.
