2-second read from the Writers and Artists Yearbook – 2 things a self publishing author should pay for – https://www.writersandartists.co.uk/2014/02/respecting-your-reader-what-services-should-you-be-paying-for-and-why1
I totally agree. So was glad to have a mainstream deal which meant these were done. (But even then an eagle-eyed friend spotted a few errors in the final text.) There could have been many more. As for the cover – I love mine and the designer spent quite a lot of time playing around with ideas I had given to the publisher and producing images to go with them – I saw c 15 options, I don’t know how many he/she discarded before I got a chance to look at them, but the end result (I think) is fabulous.
What do you think?
