This is a book for authors who are trying to decide between traditional publishing or self publishing. Title: How Do I Decide? Sub-title: Self-Publishing vs. Traditional Publishing Series title: A Field Guide for Authors Book description: There is plenty of information available on both traditional and self-publishing. But how do you choose between the two? How Do I Decide? is a concise, definitive resource that will guide you through the decision, allowing you to ignore the noise and hype and focus on the right path for YOU.

What's your vision?
Book cover for the above-described book.
I'd love to come up with a design that has elements that can be carried through with a whole series of books. I don't want all the books to look "the same," but I want to to appear they are in the same series. So this first book cover will hopefully set the stage for several more to come. The book is currently listed on Amazon, with a cover I do not like: http://www.amazon.com/Decide-Self-Publishing-Traditional-Publishing-Authors-ebook/dp/B00B4JRNN8/ref
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
RachelleGardner collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
