Do you know the #1 reason why most books fail?
How one simple change turned a struggling author into a NYT Bestseller in just 38 days
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.
The one tweak that made her an “overnight” success
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 hiring a book cover designer for high-quality book cover design. You can still see the difference between covers (print has the old version, Kindle version is updated).
They say you can’t judge a book by its cover…
…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 (apparently there are around 3ooo books published on Amazon daily (yes, every day!!!!), so it’s more important than ever to have a cover that grabs your reader’s attention and piques their curiosity.

What Other Authors Say:
P.S. So who am I?
My name’s Adrijus and I’m a professional book cover designer who specializes in dark, gritty covers that grab fans and make them want to check your book out. My style is most suited for these Fiction genres – Thriller/Crime/Horror/Romance/Suspense/Fantasy genres.. or those who like to break rules! 😉 I have done multiple of Non-Fiction covers so if you are is looking for non-standard designs, then we will come up with great options!
I may not be the cheapest designer around, but you won’t see me doing other designs for other industries like Logotypes. I work with authors only and help make their visual identities look great (that includes covers as well as a recent addition to author website design). I don’t dabble in book cover design part-time as an additional source of income, it is my goal to have this website as one of the web’s most useful book cover design resources and be a great cover designer in general! I love the fact that many authors trust me with their books and let me be part of the journey! 🙂
