The front cover is the first and the last thing that a customer sees before deciding on whether they want to purchase your book or not.  The illustrations and informational text send a signal to the brain advising you to purchase the book.  Sometimes it’s the illustrations, the logo, or simply the polished layout of the book that catches and keeps your attention.  Having a memorable title and catchy cover will increase the odds of your book being sold.

All authors must make sure that the title, the illustrations, and the author credits are displayed clearly and professionally.  You do not want to miss an opportunity to sell your book because the title was too long or the illustrations were too blurry.  When self-publishing, remember that every detail counts!
