The old saying goes that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But when it comes to your readers, not only is this inevitable – it’s advised.
Readers (and reviewers!) naturally assume that if an author hasn’t bothered to spend resources on getting a professional cover for their book, then they haven’t spent resources on getting the book professionally edited, formatted, or tested by beta readers, either.
While this isn’t always the case, it happens often enough for readers to equate a high quality cover with high quality writing and editing, and a plot that thickens faster than cold porridge on a wintry afternoon.
And you know what? The higher the expectations, the more readers are willing to dish out for a good read. Why settle for 99 cents per copy for all your hard work, when you could grab readers’ attention with a book that looks like a million bucks?
