An Author Needs a Team of Freelancers to Create a Book

    It’s a good thing for an author to be proficient in any of the steps of creating a book but not at the expense of giving up quality to save a dollar. For example, some authors are experts in graphic design and constructing a book cover is a breeze for them. I met a writer via Twitter awhile back, and her specialty was mixing stock images together to produce great-looking book covers. Composing book covers isn’t my talent, so I gladly pay a freelance graphic designer that I found on Fiverr to design my book covers for me. However, proofreading a book is my strong suit and how I save money in this process.

Graphic Design Techniques

    There are three main steps that I take in order to polish up my work and make it available for sale on Amazon―book cover design, proofreading, and formatting of eBook and paperback books. Many self-published authors may go all out and register their books with the Library of Congress or spend thousands of dollars on hiring a mainstream copy editor, but I prefer to keep things simple and not fret over particular details. Though not the only source on the Internet, I’m able to employ my team of freelancers through Fiverr to enhance each one of my books for no more than $150 on average. This entire process takes less than week before I’m ready to upload my finished product on Amazon’s publishing platform.

    An author can present a quality book that’s free of errors without spending a great deal of money. The bulk of my spending is in graphic design and formatting, but I’m able to complete the second step of production myself because my proofreading technique is 99.99% effective in generating a manuscript free of typos and grammatical mistakes. I’m confident to say that the proof is in the pudding, and my Amazon book reviews are a direct reflection of it.
