The New Cover

Updated: Nov 25, 2023

Why get a new cover for language Barrier?

Never judge a book by its cover. It’s a maxim most of us know and would agree with. Yet without doubt it's also one that most of us ignore constantly. We make judgements every day, often based on spurious first impressions. First impressions last the longest, first impressions are the strongest, always try to make a good first impression: there are many sayings about first impressions based on those judgements we make.

Unfortunately perhaps, first impressions do matter.

So, what are the things that will give a first impression of a book? Perhaps the title, the blurb, a comment from a friend or a review might attract a reader's attention. Yet even in today's I.T. world the cover is most likely the first thing to gain an impression. All writers know they need a good, hopefully a great cover, for every book if they are to have any hope of competing in a very competitive market.

That's why I can't thank Donika Mishineva enough for this new cover. I believe it gives the right impression of my book in both obvious and subtle ways. I only hope my story will be viewed as at least half as good.

But really, never judge a book by its cover, or its title, or its blurb. No, there’s only one way you can truly judge the book.

You’ll just have to read it.
