Q&A with Lindsey Andrews | The Art of Book Cover Design, Part 1

So, today's "part 1" features the talents of Lindsey Andrews, the creative mind behind Richelle Mead's upcoming The Glittering Court and the famous cover remodels of the Anna and the French Kiss series. Lindsey was so lovely to chat with and I appreciate her going above and beyond in taking the time to answer my questions; thank you, Lindsey. It was a pleasure to host you for this fun Q&A.
