A while back I wrote a post on How to Save Money on Editing Your Book. Since I’ve been covering How to Find and Select a Cover Designer and 7 Tips to Make the Most of Working with a Cover Designer, I wanted to make sure I also talked about cover design on a budget before I ended my mini-series on cover design.

One of the biggest challenges we face as indie authors is financing our books, especially when we’re starting out. Yet we’re told not to scrimp on editing and cover design (which is excellent advice).

If we’re working on a shoestring and can’t skim much money from the family budget, what do we do?

Please join me at Fiction University for the rest of this post on cover design on a budget. (And I apologize for the delay in letting you all know about the existence of this post. I got it to Janice before my December crumbled around me, but I didn’t have a chance to schedule an announcement here.)
