Since its release two years ago, my first novel, A Second Helping, has received so much love and support from readers.
And I have received a number of emails from readers that said they were initially draw to my book because of the chocolate cake on the cover. One reader even stated that the couple on the cover was a distraction and took away from the story.
At first I was a little put out by the comment, but then I started to consider whether a cover update was due.
One of the best things about being an independent author is that I can change my book any time I want. There’s no publishing team that I have to answer to before I make changes to any aspect of my book. The cover was an easy fix, however, I have to admit that when I first saw the new cover I missed my dancing couple. But it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the new look. And I hope it appeals to even more new readers.
