    I am currently writing a novel & have no idea what to do for a book cover. I even thought I would use one of my wedding photos as it deals some with my hubby & our past, meeting & how we came to marry, but also deals with a little bondage/sex/BDSM. How can I come up with an eye catching book cover?

      Hi Kathleen,
      If you plan to self-publish your novel, there are large number of freelance designs or cover services that could help you with a cover. Self-publishing boards or groups might be able to offer some recommendations. Good luck with your novel!
