Book Cover Designer Austin

You might already know that marketing is an all-critical skill for any author who want to sell his or her books. What you might not know is that a book’s cover design is an author’s #1 marketing tool. A book’s cover is a potential customer’s first impression of the story. It is what will convince them pause and open — or not open — the book. Indeed, there is almost nothing more important than a book cover design when it comes to a book’s sales.

That begs the question: how can you get a good — nay, great — book cover? Unless you’re a designer yourself, we recommend going to a professional for this. The best book cover designers will know all of the book cover trends in the industry, and have experience designing covers for books in your specific genre. Most importantly, you need to make sure that your story matches with the designer’s art style, and that both of your visions for the book cover align.
