7 Tips for Authors Working with a Book Cover Designer

I also created a new page of recommended book cover designers. You can find it under the “Getting Published” tab in my navigation menu.

Have an illustrator or book publicist you’d like to recommend? Comment below! I’d like to create recommendation pages for these services as well. Please include link to their website.
