Witness to Death by Dave White
Have you heard of RL Mathewson?
Most writers have – she’s one of the most successful self-publishing writers in the world.
It wasn’t always that, way though.
Once upon a time, she was happy just to see a few sales a day.
She poured her blood, sweat, and tears into her novels, and was pleased to have earned a small, devoted following, but she wasn’t exactly taking the world by storm.
Then, in the summer of 2012, everything changed.
On May 29th, she made one simple change to her book.
Her sales exploded almost overnight, and by July 7th, her book “Playing for Keeps” was #5 on the New York Times bestseller list.
Her books have been a fixture on Apple and the Times’ bestseller lists ever since.
So what caused such a dramatic turnaround?
It wasn’t lower prices.
It wasn’t great reviews.
And it wasn’t offering more samples.
No, the one little tweak that changed her career forever was scrapping her generic covers and investing in a high-quality book cover design. You can still see the difference between covers (print has the old version, Kindle version is updated).
…but the truth is that most people do.
It’s just human nature.
And with the Kindle and Apple stores getting more crowded every day, it’s more important than ever to have a cover that grabs your reader’s attention and piques their curiosity.
Another question is: what to look for in a book cover designer? How do you find someone you can trust to do a great job at a fair price?
