Over the past couple of weeks, I have managed to redesign, update and republish all eight of my book covers in both paperback and Kindle editions. I also updated the end matter of each book to reflect the new books that I have written and published over this year. It has been an enjoyable but mentally draining exercise. I hope that you all think that it was well worth the enormous amount of concentrated effort.
I have certainly thought since the beginning of my writing career that each book deserved better covers than I had first designed. I was far too busy writing the current book to spend much time on the way the covers of my first books looked. I did my best within the constraints of Createspace, but I recently found a way to create the artwork myself and then drop it into the Createspace templates. I am mightily relieved to have achieved that task. As an ex-graphic designer with twenty years of graphic design experience, I always knew that my original book covers were lacking. I knew that I would have to revisit these original book covers, most of them designed a year ago, and revamp them. The old covers did not do me or the interiors of my books justice. Remaining true to my indie roots and philosophy, I did not pay a penny to achieve these results.
