Learn how to make the look of your book win over audiences!

It’s true, readers really do judge a book by its cover.  A professionally designed cover stands out as just that—professional.  Readers are more likely to pick it up, turn it over and flip through it, reviewers are more likely to review it, and the media is more likely to take you serious as a viable and trustworthy author. A well thought out cover ensures more opportunity and more visibility for your book. In this class, Jeniffer Thompson will walk you through the basics of cover and interior design as well as before and after examples that illustrate how even small changes can turn an okay cover into a shining best seller.

Learn About:
-Choosing the right font for your cover
-Sourcing professional images and image placement
-Creating the right feeling to engage your audience
-And more!

With nearly 330 thousand books published in the US every year, it’s imperative that your cover shines.
