They say not to judge a book by its cover, but to me, that’s the only way I’ll pick up a book. If the cover doesn’t attract my attention, then I won’t even give it a second thought. I’ll move on to the next book, until I find one that captures my sight, and makes me want to read the summary.
A great book cover will tell the story without flipping the book over and reading the summary. The cover can tell you if it’s a romance, mystery, horror, young adult, ect…
My recent novel Family Secrets, tells you someone could be dead by a lake, or even passed out. But I also think it gives you a feel for a good mystery.

About Family Secrets
Alexis has had big dreams all her life, and she’s worked hard to make them happen! After college she married and had a beautiful baby boy, living her dream as “Mommy” until Colton was safely entrenched in grade school. She lands her dream job at NASA, and her supportive husband, Jay, takes the lead on raising their son. The perfect family, right?
Twelve years later with no warning and no reason, Jay commits suicide. Colton goes into denial and blames his mother; Alexis buries herself in her work.
Seven months later, Alexis’s biggest dream comes true. She’s going to be on the next space shuttle! Her victory is short-lived when she finds out she has breast cancer. As her health declines, Colton delves into the dangerous circumstances of his father’s death.
“Family Secrets” crept into Alexis’s life when she wasn’t paying attention. Will she and her son ever find out the truth? Or is it too late?
