Question, “How much…” You know, “You’ve talked me into getting a professional cover design. Now, the question is like how much should I pay?” That’s something that’s like all over the place, OK? You can, you know, research and you can get a cover designer that charges $100.00. You can get one that charges $1,000. You can get one that charges $3,000. How much should you pay? Personally, I would not pay more than $500.00, OK, unless it’s something really special and the most special cover in the world, I wouldn’t pay, you know, more than like $750.00, OK? You know, the cover, yes, a book…you know, you can judge a book by its cover. Yeah, you know, the cover’s got to look good but in the smaller arena where you are, you know, it doesn’t matter, you know. You used the word like “template”. Ooh, I mean that’s like a dirty word but if you’re only going to do…even say you’re going to do 10,000 books, this is a huge country. You do 10,000 books. I could use the exact same cover with a different title (1:00) and I can almost guarantee you that nobody’s going to see both books and say, “Wow, look at that. It’s the exact same cover.” So that’s where, you know, the economies come in, that, you know, you find somebody that you like and that you trust, OK, and then…we do covers. I think the median or the mid range is right around $500.00 and you can even buy them cheaper if you want but I wouldn’t spend more than $500.00, OK, no matter what anybody says.
