I’m halfway through writing Mama’s Gone, the fourth and final book in the Lagotti Family series and my mind is turning to what I’m going to do next. First there is the no small matter of marketing Powder, which is out on November 19 and then Mama’s Gone will be released March 2019.
The second task is for me to decide which series to start writing next. There’s a four-book story following the trials and tribulations of a Jewish family from 1914 to the 1960s. My other front runner is a financial crime female detective. Why mention this? Well, part of my marketing planning has involved seeking a book cover designer and I’m pleased to say I think I’ve found someone. Once everything has been sorted, I’ll tell you all more but I’m on the cusp of getting a fresh look for Powder and Mama’s Gone, which I’m very excited about.
Book cover design is an incredible set of skills which combine graphic design, typography and sufficient understanding of sales platforms like Amazon because most readers decide on their purchase based on the thumbnail image offered to them by their eBook content provider. Judge.
