During week one, you reviewed the covers of bestselling books in your genre. My suggestion is that you stick with what sells. No need to reinvent the wheel. The only time I recommend that you shy away from mimicking the bestselling covers is when the author of the bestseller is a public figure. People will buy Joel Osteen’s books because he is a household name. Unless you are immediately recognizable (or if your face/body tells the story), putting your face on the cover of the book may not be the best idea initially. You can always change the covers later. (Joel Osteen’s earlier books did not have his picture on them.)
