Book cover designers are awesome.
That is, *IF* you can afford them.

For writers with low or no budgets, you can attempt to do things on your own. These steps can help.

1. Look at Best Sellers

For example, if you're writing cozy mysteries set in London, pull up the most popular books in that category this month.

2. Note Patterns

You'll notice that there are often-used elements present in those top 10 or 20 books. They may use similar color schemes (black-teal, gray-white-yellow, orange-purple-green, etc.), graphics (someone running in a forest, a man with his shirt off, a pair of shoes on a sidewalk, etc.), or text (typeface, font, colors, character spacing, etc.).

Write these patterns down so you can reference them while designing your own cover.

3. Start Designing

Now that you know what the pros are doing, choose which of these common elements you like and start incorporating them into a custom design.

There's a lot that goes into creating a strong cover that serves you well as your book's first impression to potential buyers. But these steps can help you get oriented to the process of trying to handle cover design on your own, if you must.

Remember: There's no such thing as a perfect anything in life. Including covers. There will be people who love your cover and people who don't, no matter how much research you do, or even whether or not you hire a professional. One great thing about being an indie author who manages their own literary career is that you can make changes in the future. If five years from now your cover looks outdated, you can update it.

Happy designing!

Example:

Christina K. Jaxon gave Volo Press Books⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️:
Great service! I hardly had to lift a finger when it came to editing, designing, and publishing my faith-based, LGTBQ+ memoir 'Scallywag Parfait' so it could be sold on Amazon. I'll be back with my steampunk graphic novel for sure!

Writers: Just Keep Writing

We're closing in on screenwriters and authors all over the world having trusted us with 9,000,000 words in 2021.

These were 10-minute scripts, 42,000-word novels, 12,000-word memoirs, 200-word children's books, and 4,000-word books of poetry. Pieces that seemed like mere drops in the bucket at the time. But, taken all together, this is a massive amount of writing that has been achieved.

So, for your own literary journey, remember to take things bit by bit. A few hundred words here, a few thousand there. Yes, it may seem overwhelming at first. You'll get frustrated, want to give up (may even do so), and feel like you're losing your mind trying to get something as grand as Your Vision into some combination of 26 measly letters that will transfer an idea between the brains of two people who have never met.

But you CAN do this.

Keep writing.
Keep revising.
Keep collaborating with professionals you can learn from.
Keep studying the craft.

We believe in you and we hope you believe in yourself.

Thank you for your business and support.

Happy writing!

08/02/2021

FYI: If you write 100 words per day (takes approximately 5 minutes):

1 week = 700 words (flash fiction)
1 month = 3,000 words (short story)
6 months = 18,000 words (novelette)
10 months = 30,000 words (novella)

To make things easier:

—Avoid trying to write and edit at the same time. This is like trying to wash and dry your clothes at the same time (it takes longer and often just ends up muddling things instead of improving them). Produce the words and then polish them.

—Set aside the same block of time each day to write and keep it sacred. If you can set aside a specific time to sleep, spend time with friends, go to work, eat a meal, or watch a certain show, you can set aside five minutes to write. If you WILL is another question, but you certainly are capable of it!

We have helped yet another writer become a published author! If you listen to music from the middle of last century (Sylvia Parren, The Alphabeticals, etc.), you just might have heard of Earl Williams. He came to us with his photographs, cover, and manuscript ready, only needing a little help with the technological part of getting his simple book on the market. He now has his very own e-book up for sale and bringing in revenue for him. Congratulations, Mr. Earl! :D https://amzn.to/3xjoLuW

T.L. Curtis' Feign II reminds me of coffee shops and beatnik hangouts. Although I have no idea what Curtis' voice sounds like in real life, upon reading her poetry, I can clearly hear her voice emerge in a spoken-word style through her invariably engaging lines. Each poem is different from the next, however incredibly linked. While reading each entry, one can clearly recognize they are written by the same poet featuring her true-life experiences. My absolute favorite line in the entire book is "I'd like to be alive when I die". It brings up an extreme amount of emotion in me and I can relate to it whole-heartedly. The complete poems of "One Talented Tommy" and "So Wrong" are engaging to me because they are relationship stories. They left me feeling like I knew what Curtis was experiencing in her life when she wrote them. The only poem that bothered me was "Dancing is Forbidden" because I felt as though Curtis forced the rhyme. I feel as though it would have been more powerful without the forced rhyme. Many of the poems sounded like lyrics to a song, and left me wanting to hear the beat in which she wrote! If you are looking for limericks or happy rhyming poetry, you will not find it here! With Curtis' powerful voice, I would recommend this book of poetry to people who would like a smooth introduction to the world of poetry! Her poems are fairly easy to read, and invoke many emotions!
