Never Trust Your Gut!

I was completely convinced that I could design my own cover. I had what I thought was a great idea. KDP lets me upload it and tweak it all I want. And through I could do it all for about $10. My gut said I could do it.

And that's when I stepped back and remembered my personal motto.

"Never trust your gut! Your gut is stupid!"

So through the LDS Beta Readers group on Facebook I found Victorine Lieske. And after probably being one of her more difficult customers, I ended up with this:

Victorine did SO much better than I could have ever attempted. I almost tried doing the paperback version on my own too but again had to remember, "Never Trust Your Gut!" So I forked over the fee and she knocked it out of the park again.

Moral of the story? Just hire a real designer.

Secondary moral? Hire Victorine Lieske -
