The budget for one thing.
And playing around with covers to sell, and this time I mean it!
This falls under the category of indie authors and writer “stuff” as finding covers is a huge part of the indie author business. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m working on a portfolio of covers I will make available for sale for authors looking for a pre-made cover. These are not commissioned works, but pre-made covers in all genres to which I will add the author’s details, the title of the book, and taglines etc.
They are not stock images. I use 3D tools and assets to create original images and scenes. I’ll sell one and one only, so they will be unique to the author who buys them.
I’m not quite ready to launch yet, but I’m getting there.
More importantly – for me – I’m learning to let go. I don’t need to write a story for every cover I design, even though I might want to. It’s ridiculous, I know, but I tend to get rather attached to anything I make. I guess that’s natural, but at some point … you gotta let go!
