If you read our article 33 Tips From Book Publicists For Self-Published Authors, the overwhelming number of tips were centered around having your cover professionally designed.

We typically can spot a self-published book from across the room. Many authors think they can design it themselves. You’ve worked hard at putting those words onto the pages. Why would you not hire a professional designer to do the artwork for your book’s cover?
We’re happy to answer questions or provide price quotes for cover design services. Check out our design team’s portfolio on our parent company’s website.
