Book Cover Case Study: The Busy Mom's Guide to Creativity

Oftentimes, authors and readers have no idea the thought process and research that goes into a book cover design. So today I thought I'd share one of my favorite book cover designs and how me and my author landed on the design that we did.

5 Reasons Why You Should Self Publish

5 Reasons Why You Should Self Publish

You know your book has potential. You know that your "why" driving your story is enough to draw an engaged, excited audience. But you've sent your manuscript to several publishers, and have barely even made it past their automated response system. Or, a publisher finally saw your potential, and proposed to you a publishing plan that requires you to invest tens of thousands of dollars just get your book on a shelf.

How to Choose the Right Brand Designer

How to Choose the Right Brand Designer

Choosing the right brand designer to create visuals that represent your brand is VITAL. Let me say that again (but it’s worth repeating about 50 times), choosing the right designer is VITAL. You need a designer that's going to jump on the same page as you—someone who understands your vision, your audience, and your vibe.

I'll admit, the process of finding the right designer can be difficult. I spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to get in front of my niche, my ideal clients, and those that I know I’d love to work with and who would love to work with me. But I watch the Facebook group posts that go out “In need of a designer!” and 50+ designers respond. It can be CONFUSING! You don’t know how to make the right decision—or even know where to start when it comes to considering designers.

There's a lot of pressure choosing a designer to represent you and your business. But I think there can be a good place to start. I believe there's a way you can set yourself up for success by asking important questions and knowing what to look for to ensure you choose the right brand designer.
