Story Behind STAB LOVE WITH FLOWER STALKS Book Cover

Its 9 days to the Anticipated Release of my debut book STAB LOVE WITH FLOWER STALKS.I’m sharing the story behind its book cover with you Gem.

During my routine Saturday blog hopping, Bookstagramer Uwadisreads interview of Thy Bui, a book cover designer inspired me to share the story behind about my STAB LOVE WITH FLOWER STALKS book cover.

STAB LOVE WITH FLOWER STALKS book cover is designed by Logan February (Author, In The Nude). It’s the 3rd and final book cover design. The 1st one was an🤭 amateur one by me. 2nd a promotional cover design by Lara @naijabookbae. I found a second image which was “cuter, with more white spaces”. Logan agreed with me, saying “a lot more can be done with text, while it still looks elegant”.

This final cover is elegant and beautiful. 🧡

As a reader I enjoy finding where the book title stems from in the book. I also love deciphering how a book plot and themes are captured in its cover. Usually when you buy a book. The cover, title and blurb are the only firsthand link to its story. So I was particular about the cover reflecting the layers of themes and experiences of characters.

Thank you to everyone who has sent me compliments about the #SLWFS book cover and those who’ve resurrected their Okadabooks app. Good News: You can buy and read the book on the Okadabooks website from 18th of June 2019 Gems!

PS: Most readers prefer using the app. But one reader in the poll said she reads on the website with her laptop.
