Tara Woods Turner Hi guys. Okay. I am working with my designer on the cover of my next book, which is #2 in a 3 part series. I want to say something like "From the bestselling author of blah blah!" on the cover to tie in the brand and create a positive association. But where to put this?

Ken Doggett (kendoggett) Having never had a best seller, I can't advise, but I would look at books by other best-selling authors to see what they did. You might get a lot of ideas.
