Should I Hire a Designer?

If you choose to hire a professional book designer, keep in mind that it may be costly and you may not always get the result you’re hoping for. For us, the answer is simple. The designer did not write your book! The designer isn’t going to even read your book because they have zero comprehension of the time, energy, effort and emotion that’s been put into writing your book. Most importantly, only you, the author, hold this important information. Often, a  designer will create an amazing and eye-catching book cover, only to leave the reader feeling mislead. The cover must accurately represent what your book is about!
