Shelley, I loved hearing you on the podcast. This was probably one of the most comfortable conversations I’ve heard in a long time for something business-related (without it being scripted).
I also appreciate the fact that you aren’t simply talking about the tasks of creating a book, and creating content, but you focus on marketing, specifically lists and ‘value-based giving’. I couldn’t agree more.
I also wouldn’t discount using something like Fiverr for your book covers (however, your results might vary, but I’ve had good success).

Thank you so much for your feedback! I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂
I have occasionally used Fiverr for eBook covers but you do need to be careful to hire a designer that has had great feedback. Also, realize it may not end up working out. I usually also pay for the .psd file so I can make changes in the future as well.
