Book Cover Critique: $150. I’ve watched key book wholesalers, chain store buyers, and producers of major TV shows pick up a book and make an instant decision on the book WITHOUT opening the book. How important is your book cover? Without a good one, your book won’t sell. I’ll help you to pass that First-Look Test. All for only $125. Each critique includes a 15-minute feedback session via telephone.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.
“As a publisher on a budget, I can confidently say that consulting with John on the cover of The Way of Leading People: Unlocking Your Integral Leadership Skills was the best money I spent promoting my book. John provided me with clear, concise feedback while making several valuable marketing suggestions.” — Tim Warneka, founder, Asogomi Publishing International
“This was the best investment I’ve made on my book.” — Sandra Lewis, publisher, My Health Record
Book Title Critique: $150. While a book title critique is included in the book cover critique, I’ve often had to tell people to go back to the drawing board completely because their title was all wrong. If you are looking to brand your book or want to create a bestseller, a book title critique will help you to create a bestselling book before you hire a cover designer (and spend up to $3,000 on a cover with a bad title). Each critique includes a 15-minute feedback session via telephone.
