S2E5 – Designing Your Own Cover

What happens after reaching “The End” in a manuscript can be a very difficult and daunting time. In series two of Writing Roots, hosts Leigh Hull and Ley Esses dig into the steps between finishing the manuscript and getting it into the hands of the readers.

While we all try to tell ourselves that people don’t judge books by their covers, everyone does anyway. A good cover can make or break the sales on your book. Leigh guides the discussion with Ley to talk about different kinds of covers and why all self-published authors shouldn’t just slap a cover together.

First aired September 16, 2019.

As promised in the episode, here’s Hank Green’s Ranting about Books.
