“Aspiring authors, get this through your head. Cover art serves one purpose, and one purpose only, to get potential customers interested long enough to pick up the book to read the back cover blurb. In the internet age that means the thumb nail image needs to be interesting enough to click on. That’s what covers are for. ― Larry Correia
This is probably the first and most prominent image on the visible part (“above the fold”) of your BSP. Is it the best it can be? Is the text readable? What’s more prominent: your name or the book title? What’s more important to be readable? Is the image intriguing? Or if it’s mostly copy, does it pull in the reader to want to buy the book or at least learn more.
We could have an entire course on just the Book Cover, but we’ll cover the basics here so you’re sure to get the most bang for your buck.
