Judging a book by its cover

May 22nd 2012

Dear reader,

B&W or Colour?

One thing that has completely blindsided me is the importance of the book’s cover. Who knew? I thought that once the manuscript is done, I could put my legs up. Oh no. I’ve spent countless hours over the past few weeks talking about the cover, driving to Malaysia with bicycle to take new photographs, etc etc.

Anyway, it has boiled down to these two. I know nothing about design and marketing. I’ve heard good arguments for either, but not sure which way to go. We have to make a decision in the next few days.

So I hope you can help me with some comments and insights. Do comment below, on my FB posting, or email me directly: sudhir.vadaketh@gmail.com. Thank you!

Update!: Decided on Colour–read here


p.s. You can read more about the book via the link “Floating on a Malayan Breeze” above. Or click on the covers to read the book’s synopsis on Amazon.
