Best Covers of 2017

My regular readers know that I am a huge fan of good cover art. We do a monthly Favorite Covers post here because I think a good cover can totally sell a book (and a bad one can sadly detract from the book). When a cover is done well it can draw you in to the […]

Jay’s Best of 2017
