Self-Publishers Are Shy about Their Names
I just saw a most gorgeous cover. Except for one detail. The author name was almost imperceptible, in the bottom right corner, shy and tiny.
It's the mark of a self-publisher, and a dead giveaway; the author name is small on the cover. The author dares not misrepresent him- or herself as someone BIG. Since he is just starting out, he thinks, why act all big and "unhumble"?
I say, don't be shy, be big. Make your name big. Huge. Big. Be now what you want to be. BIG. Selling lots and lots of books.
