They say you can’t tell a book by its cover, but you actually can, at least if the publisher’s marketing department has done its job. Sci fi covers, in particular, often have a “look” that helps define them as part of the genre.
So my questions today: As an author, what do you want in your own sci fi covers to pull readers in? Do they need to have a bare-skinned man (or woman) to indicate the LGBT nature of the title? What do you think will grab your readers?
