Sadly, people are very visual creatures, so they do judge books, and anything else for that matter, by its cover. Covers are what draws a buyer in to investigate. A really poor book cover can actually kill sales.
One thing I adore about Decadent Publishing is their beautiful covers, but I have to add that their science-fiction covers kicks the competition's ass! I have several SFR covers created by Decadent's artists, and whenever I have a new one coming out, I am always on pins and needles until I open that file.
I invite you, whether you're simply a reader or an author, to check out Decadent's sci-fi covers. Peruse their pages and then post here what your top two faves are and why. Don't just say it's pretty or I love this particular cover. Instead, really share with us why you like the covers that you grab you the most.
Here are the links to the sci-fi and futuristic pages so you don't have to hunt for them:
