I posted a few days ago
about the book cover for my book on premature birth, Precious Infants“. I received some feedback on Facebook which was very helpful. Thank you to all who contacted me and have me their ideas… I can use all the suggestions I can get!
My sister, Jennifer, redesigned it with different pictures, and I think she produced a fabulous result.
Here is a previous cover page idea I had considered using. I love the baby picture but then realized that the words “copy” and “paste” would be too distracting…
Then I tried using this image, which is also adorable. However, I got comments and emails telling me that people might think that the hand holding the baby’s head up might be awkward and also said they wished I had a smiling baby on the cover.
Then I got a suggestion from someone who said I should use a picture of one of the babies holding their drawings (I received many of those when I was sending them out one by one). Those pictures meant the WORLD to me, so instead of one, I chose three to include on the cover.
I think it’s a wonderful idea to give other parents hope by showing healthy, thriving toddlers on the cover with images of themselves when they were preemies. So I couldn’t be more thrilled with the way it looks now, showcasing those beautiful babies!
