When purchasing a book you don’t really purchase it because of the cover. However, it was probably the cover that captured your attention, leading you to pick it up and scan the first few pages to see if you’d like the book. Truth is buyers do judge books by their covers and when buyers browse the book prior to purchase and see a poorly designed interior and cover, a seemingly unedited book they usually put it down thinking the book has no value regardless of how great the message is.
With the increase in self-published books many great writers think they can edit, format, and create a great cover their own book only to end up with disastrous results. As an author and self-publishing assistant I get it! Self-publishing authors usually don't have deep pockets so to save money they do their own editing, interior and cover design. A book riddle with grammatical errors as well as poor interior design makes your story difficult to follow and distorts its message. A cover that is crowded with unreadable type, low quality images and misspelled words makes your book look amateurish.
Yes, you are self-publishing, but your book does not have to look home-made. You've spent precious time writing your masterpiece, don't ruin the reading experience for your audience by presenting them with an unprofessional looking book. If you want to be taken seriously as an author and business professional, make sure your book presents professional.
If you want a professional cover, but don't want to spend a lot of money on it let me create one for you. I work directly with you to design your book's interior and its cover exactly the way you want it to ensure it presents professional. I design book covers for all book genres. You supply the wording for the front and back cover and the photos or art desired. If you don't have an idea for your cover, I can take your book's description and come up with a cover to match your story. The cover I design will be your printer's specification, and I will upload the final file to your printer to ensure dimensions are correct. My rates are very affordable starting at $75. >>learn more
