Despite the saying, readers do indeed judge books by their covers.
That's why I'm sharing everything you need to know about commissioning a great cover design in today's episode, including why a cover can make or break your book marketing, how much covers typically cost to commission, and what the process of working with a book cover designer looks like.
Later in the episode, I also share a quick list of the top-rated book design companies and freelance marketplaces where you can source your cover design. Oh, and a sneak peek at the cover design for Build Your Best Writing Life, my upcoming book for writers!
