Sheri L. McGathy: Book Cover Design

Join us as Sheri McGathy speaks on the importance of book cover design. Her presentation will include many aspects of book cover design including: Purpose of a Book Cover, Importance of a Book Cover, Book Covers for E-Book, Paperback, Hardback, And Audio, Genre Expectations and Differences, Process, and more.

Sheri McGathy has worked in prepress in a graphic design department as a Graphic Arts Coordinator/Copy Editor for just under 45 years. Now, her plan is to write and craft book covers. She is hoping to see the cover design business grow now that she has more time.

Sheri’s favorite part of creating covers, especially pre-mades, is that it gives her a chance to tell a story with the images and on pre-mades, try out new techniques or ideas. Her hope is to craft something that hints at what lies beyond those cover flaps.

Sheri was born a buckeye, but was uprooted in 1971 and replanted amongst Kansas sunflowers, tornadoes, and college football. It’s a good life. Shari is married with one son, who is now an adult with three children, of which she considers the lights of her life. She lives with her husband, two dogs, and a cat, which are also lights in her life.
