There are two things as a – first time – indie author I knew I shouldn’t do myself.
- Editing. Always, always hire an editor. I have a great one I worked with previously and she finds mistakes I was sure of weren’t there (but of course they were).
- Book cover. I know there are writers who are skilled enough to design their own book covers (I’m not one of them).
So, today is about book covers within your budget. Where do you find a good book cover? The first thing I did is simply google ‘indie premade book covers’. I specifically searched the term ‘premade’ as these book covers are usually (not always) cheaper and for every budget.
So, here are a few sites I found very helpful. Of course, it depends on your budget and genre which one suits you.
