Brand new self-published authors are going into business for themselves, and that business is selling books. Mediocre covers cost you money in sales, that’s a fact. While it’s hard to overestimate the importance of a cover, it’s also hard to overestimate the value of each dollar when you’re starting a new business. So what’s a good cover worth to a newly minted self-published author?
Anytime I see a post titled “the costs of self-publishing,” I immediately get suspicious. So often, these posts are punditry making spurious claims and connecting disparate dots of information to “prove” that self-publishing is still somehow a terrible money-making idea and traditional publishing is the only way to make a living as a fiction writer. This series will most definitely not be that.
