Your book IS judged by it’s cover. As book review professionals since 2008, we have seen thousands and thousands of books come through our office. 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?
