Indie Authors and Cover Art

As Independent Authors we must wear all the hats and do all the work to make our books as professional as we possibly can before we publish them.  This includes writing, re-writing, editing, creating a cover for the book and promotional efforts.  If we have extra money we can pay for outside help.  But unless you have built up a following and have several books out there generating income you can not afford to pay for outside help.

Well I have run across a lady who does good quality covers very inexpensively!  So if you're writing a book and still have no clue as to what you're going to do for a cover this may be a possible option.  Loraine Hunsaker has a web site http://www.lkhunsaker.com/designs.htm where you can check her out and see some samples of her work.

Loraine has agreed to do a guest post on this Blog on January 26, 2012, where she will share so Do's and Don'ts for Cover Art and provide some samples of her work.  Please mark your calendars so you can drop by and read the post!  Book mark her site if you may need cover art help in the future.

As Indie Authors we need to build lists of Editors and means of editing and proofing our work, Cover Artists, Trailer makers, book reviewers and those who do Author Interviews for our first work and future releases as means of getting affordable help.  If you're still in the writing phase and haven't self-published yet, this is the perfect time to start promoting your work, getting some on-line exposure before your books release.  Mark Your calendars to revisit this blog January 26th.  I am very excited about this because I have heard over and over again how this is one of the biggest challenges for writers who are not artistically blessed.

Thank You Loraine for offering to share your knowledge and experience with us, and for providing such inexpensive and high quality art work.  Looking forward to your guest post with us with much enthusiasm.
