FOR WRITERS: Cover Continuity

Angel Offbeat Crimes


Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Richard Wood:

I just noted a series in which the covers for the second and third books in the series both feature the main protaginists. They bear no resemblance to one another on the two books covers. In the second book the Earth Human character has tattoos, including facial ones, and red hair. The cover of the third one shows a no facial tattoos Blond.

Should authors of a series try to have continuity of the cover characters too? In this case the only thing tying the covers together is the series title, in quite small letters under the story title.

I’ll broaden this out a bit to talk about cover continuity in general, as well.

Pictured: Angel’s Offbeat Crimes series, which achieves great cover continuity.
