Ignore what your grandma told you. A badly designed cover can give your new eBook all the appeal of an ugly baby. After spending months or even years putting together your masterpiece, skimping on a professionally designed cover is false economy.
It is a crowded marketplace, and unless your title has phenomenal word of mouth to propel it, you still need to stand out on the digital eBookshelf. It is worthwhile engaging the services of a professional graphic designer.
You’d be surprised what you can get for less then $100. Of course you could do it yourself, but you’ll get more bang for your buck and better options to choose from by using a professional designer. One of my favourite design blogs is The Book Designer, who have just awarded the 2013 e-book cover design awards. You can find them here:
