Enter: Editors and Book cover designers
You may need an editor at the end stage of putting together your book. An editor can lead your book to better choice of word phrases, sentence structure and even organisation of the material. You might have typos and little grammatical errors that your tired eyes and mind have missed after going through your manuscript a zillion times. Editors help polish and improve your writing.
When it comes to a book cover, choosing the right image, balancing it with text and information, keeping in mind the right layout, colour scheme - the list is long. You could have a professionally designed book cover that is attractive and apt for the subject and tone of your book. When you get a book cover designed by a pro, you can have a clear communication of your genre and style .
