We should mention: Design the Cover, or hire a designer. Make sure to have the designer sign over rights for you to use the artwork in print and online, and for marketing purposes.

Then Copyright again “with changes.” Research cover designs in your genre and make notes about what you like and dislike to speed up the process.

Read books by your favorite authors with an eye on analyzing exactly what you DO like about their writing styles!

new message(s)
Avatar for CB Hoffmann
CB Hoffmann
Also, take a paragraph you've written and try writing it two different ways. Why do you prefer one style over the others?

Now, try implementing your preferred style throughout your story that you've written so far!
