The cover photo and cover design must
be serious, pious, welcoming and manly.
You can choose one of the attached stock
photos for your cover submission.
It needs to be very vivid since this book does
not sell in stores, but will be sent to readers
in the mail.
Please crop the background from the photo of your choice and add a background that highlights the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
After the first cover submissions are made,
I conduct a survey of my readership to see
which cover is more attractive to them.
Then I award one, two, three or four stars
to each cover, depending on how that cover
rates in the survey.
I do not like to award stars based on my opinion
since my opinion is not decisive; the readers
will decide which cover is the most attractive.
From experience, it usually takes 6 or 7 surveys
to find a winning cover.
Once new survey results have been received,
I adjust the stars accordingly.
Thank you for your cover submission.
