Erin shared some really good information from an article on what the first 250 words tell a reader and then facilitated an interesting and educational discussion successful book covers and an equally valuable discussion on unsuccessful book covers. I hadn't really thought about that aspect before. Really enjoyed the discussion and I have a lot to think about - but not just yet. Finish the book first, Carryl. THEN worry about the cover! ”
