Episode 39 – Design Your Book Like a Pro with LeAnna Weller Smith


Self-publishing is more popular than ever, which means more and more writers and authors are DIYing all aspects of their books, including designing the books themselves. Unfortunately, sometimes self-designed books are pretty obvious, especially self-designed book covers. But don’t worry, you’re not fated to have a mediocre (or worse) book cover or interior.


In this episode, I’m honored to feature an interview with professional designer LeAnna Weller Smith. LeAnna has decades of experience in design, and she has an extensive background in book design. Her book covers and interior designs have graced the titles of many publishers, and she truly has a talent for creating eye-catching designs for her clients.
