Being an ebook writer is one of the most rewarding careers today. Not only will you make a living doing what you love most, you will also have the chance to earn serious money.
The saying “don’t judge a book by its cover”is very ironic because in the publishing industry, the cover of your ebook is the very first thing that gets reviewed or checked. Before you get your book published, make sure that you first prepare a beautiful and an interesting cover. Most if not all the readers out there will take a look at your book’s cover and they will use this as basis if your book is worth their hard earned money or not.
The good thing about the rise of ebooks is that being an author of a book has never been this easy. Each year, more and more people are given the opportunity to publish their own novel. On the other hand, the bad news is that the competition became more evident. You have to give it your 101% if you want your books to be successful. Your book cover is definitely a huge part of that “extra effort”.
