An Inconvenient Marriage
BARBARA A MEILINGER
I am a wife, mother and grandmother who worked decades as a computer programmer. I am now retired, and this is my first completed novel, although I have another half-done. I am hoping to put together the best presentation of my novel, and know that a book cover matters in attracting readers.
Joanna is a young wife and mother whose husband tells her he wants a divorce in order to marry another woman. The book details Joanna's journey, along with her children, to come to terms with this shocking news. It includes scenes with her friends and relatives, with her marriage counselor and lawyer, and with her estranged husband.
I think it would mostly appeal to adult women, although there is nothing in it that would scare away men.
Book cover type
I guess I'm looking for basic. On the front, the top half my name and the title. The bottom half the picture. Although there is roman in the book, it is not a romance and I don't want the cover to scream that it is. There is a lot of humor in the book, but it is a serious topic. I want the image of a family being left behind.
What to avoid
I sometimes pick up books to read that have a light-hearted cover, but that's not what I'm looking for here. On the other hand, nobody dies. It's about what commonly happens in a family.
