Cover Crush: The Scent of Death by Andrew Taylor

We all know we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but in today's increasingly competitive market, a memorable jacket can make or break sales.

I am not a professional, but I am a consumer and much as I loath admitting it, jacket design is one of the first things I notice when browsing the shelves at Goodreads and Amazon. My love of cover art is what inspired Cover Crush, a weekly post dedicated to those prints that have captured my attention and/or piqued my interest. Enjoy!

The designer behind Andrew Taylor's The Scent of Death is an absolutely genius. Lone figures walking into the backdrop are pretty standard fare as far as thrillers are concerned, but the scroll of the iron fence creates both depth and intrigue. Can't wait to get my hands on this one!

While looking around for ideas to submit to my publisher for a future cover, this one caught my eye. The concept could be used as inspiration for books that fall into different genres. It's bold, imaginative, and bright. Definitely invites attention.
