Book Covers are like Designer Shoes

Yes, book covers are like designer shoes to authors--at least the authors I know. I can think of one or two exceptions. Most, however, are giddy when they catch their first glimpse, or if they hit upon the perfect creation--those who make covers themselves. 

I've been trying to come up with book covers for my Moonbow series written under my pen name. I worked with a designer but the design did not work for me. Now, I'm back to the drawing board, contemplating what to do for the cover. I do have an idea, and we'll see how that works. 

I now have book covers coming out of my ears and they're waiting for me to put the actual book, the words, between the covers. 

Book covers are a source of inspiration and also a source of joy--just like designer shoes ... for those folks who like such things.
