What every Author should know about Cover Design.

You’ve written, proofed, edited and rewritten—pouring your soul onto the sheets and now your baby is ready for a face. Now what? It’s THAT time. Cover design. Branding. Typography. These might as well be four-letter words for some. But don’t worry, there are many resources out there to help you find your way.

With so many options available, how do you know where to start? As if getting everything down on paper wasn’t hard enough, now you must decide how to present your baby to the world. Will she stand out? If so, will it be in a great way? The perfect cover doesn’t just happen. Does it?

Will you self-design? Will you seek out a designer to do the deed for you? Either way, I’m providing the links to two very well written posts on the myths and secrets of good cover design. I couldn’t say it better than this….

5 Common book cover design myths most indie authors believe AND 8 Cover design secrets publishers use to manipulate readers into buying books.

If THEY know it, YOU should too!! Please share the knowledge. Best regards!
