I meet a lot of authors as a book cover designer, and I’m always saddened and a bit surprised by how frequently authors are misinformed about the most basic aspects of what makes a book cover good at its job.
Your cover might be the most important marketing factor in your book’s success, and most authors I know are actively sabotaging their books. So take a look at some of the articles I’ve written below to see how you can give your book a genuine chance at success.
Note: I write these articles based on questions I get from authors, so if you have a question you don’t see the answer to, feel free to ask me about it here. Perhaps I’ll write up a new article and add it here for you.
