If radio silence underperformed it was probs because of their shit cover design lmao it doesn't really suit the tone of the book at all????
I absolutely and completely agree. I’ve had a lot of problems with cover design with my uk publisher. I’m not sure if it’s because their design department struggle to understand my books, or whether it’s because they don’t really publish YA books (i think they have about 2 other YA authors. their main focus is children’s fiction). Either way, they do seem to struggle a lot with the covers for my books, which really really doesn’t help me trying to get my books out there. As an author, I have little-to-no say on the covers of my books. They could really learn a lesson from my French covers, which I think suit my books the best:
Still, trying my best with what I’ve got haha!
