We’ve all heard the old cliché “you can’t judge a book by its cover.” But the fact is we humans are a visual species, stimulated by compelling graphics and imagery. And not only do books with cool covers stand out because of their visual appeal, they can be one of your greatest sales tools as well.
The motivation for writing your book should be to give the world a great story and a memorable experience — no matter how you publish or who you're competing with.

Photographer Eli Vega put BookBaby's custom book printing to the test with his latest printed photo book, Right Brain Photography. "It turned out really well," said Vega. "It's on the shelves of several regional and local bookstores in my area and it's getting a lot of attention." BookBaby works with many different kinds of self published authors to create a high-quality, professional book product - some are more demanding and exacting than others. Without a doubt, you can count Vega in this category.
