Leave it to the Professionals
I like to do things myself. There is a sense of pride and accomplishment in being able to say, "I did that all by myself."
But as with many things in life, sometimes we all need a little help.
I put together mock ups for my ebook cover myself, I read all the instructions to format for ebook platforms, but in the end I decided to hire a professional. A professional cover designer and formatter.
Thank goodness I did.
L.J. over at Mayhem Cover Creations http://mayhemcovercreations.com/ has done an amazing job. I love, love, love my cover. It has all the qualities I was looking for. I sent in my mock ups and told her what I was looking for and she put a beautiful cover together for ebook and print. I can't wait for the big cover reveal.
L.J. over at Mayhem Cover Creations http://mayhemcovercreations.com/ is also handling the formatting for ebook and print. I have seen two proofs so far and they look professional and fabulous.
Every time I see a new email in my inbox from L.J. I want to start jumping up and down like a crazed fangirl with excitement. It means the professional finishes are almost done. I am in the home stretch.
This is my first experience with publishing. I am learning everything as I go. Everything is exciting and now since I have a professional in my corner, everything is coming together with a professional finish, which saves me so much stress.
Stress is something we all have too much of already. A professional just took all of the worry of getting the formatting and correct cover done off of my shoulders.
Now I can concentrate on the Release.
Sweet Dreams is coming...Soon!
Ok, one more...Squeee!!!
