Updating Old Book Covers

A few months ago I decided to update some of my nonfiction books. It's been a few years, and one thing I've noticed is that covers have really been amped up a notch. When I started putting my books out there (ten years ago), I did the covers myself and that seemed to work fine for a while. But no more!

And that's a good thing. Writers are putting more effort into their covers because readers do judge the quality of books in part by the cover. We're visual by nature and the first thing we're usually attracted to is the cover. So my books really needed an update.

I'm doing the covers first and then also going through them and updating the content. It's been a few years, and some of the stuff I wrote about needs a refresh. So this is a two-part process.

All of these re-done covers were created from someone on Fiverr. I tried out different people who offered a cover creation service and found it a very easy process. I think these covers are a huge improvement over what I had, don't you?
