jacket & tie

I'm all for the notion of self-publishing.
     It drives a project that might otherwise be abandoned through to completion. And the need for a formal, polished version of a work, whatever its destiny, makes for an improved manuscript.
     But if you're going to take the self-publishing route, please hire a real graphic designer for the cover; don't try to do it yourself. You need the objective eye of a professional.
     Every glance at your book jacket is a job interview. Make sure you look your best.
