We self-published authors are on a tight budget, and we have to cut a few corners in the business of getting our books into print. More often than not, one major corner we cut is the cover: we can’t afford to pay a professional graphic designer, so we use our limited Photoshop skills to design our own cover.
I rarely plug another company’s work on my blog, but this time I’m going to make an exception, because I think the other indie writers who drop by here will appreciate this. Irish Eyes Creations is hunting for business, offering to design your cover for a mere $75. Technically, the company is offering to design film posters, but it’s the same difference. Have a look at the examples on the company’s site.
I’m giving serious thought to a reprint of my out-of-print novel Ulterior with a spanking new cover.
