JoRead asked Sophie Barnes:

I was looking at the covers for the Kingsborough Ball series and I think they are gorgeous!! I know most authors have a saying on the covers but how much of them are your idea or do you just trust "your people" and let them take the reign on the matter?

Sophie Barnes Thanks for asking - so sorry about the late response! Yes, I usually get asked to describe the characters and often send the PR dept an inspiration photo. They usually decide on the colors settings, etc, but for my latest cover I did mention that I'd like it outdoors with bright colors (sunny day) and with Thorncliff in the background, so I'm really pleased with how beautiful it looks :)
