September 21, 2021-We’re about a week away from wrapping up our theme this month which is continuing education for authors! Let’s dig into today’s topic with how to make your book stand out from the crowd.
Did you know that more than 250,000 new books are published each year? EACH YEAR! That’s an insane amount to think about. But what if you didn’t have to think about that and just focused on perfecting your book? Here are three ways that you can make your book stand out from the sea of endless titles.
- Cover art. This is what draws readers to your book from across the bookstore. They see it on the shelf, and they are immediately inspired to walk over to get a closer look (if you’ve done it right!) and pick it up. Cover art should be interesting, unique, and relevant to what is inside the book in terms of the story.
- Font. Changing up the font of your book can do wonders for making it one of a kind! I’ve seen authors create their own font, and the results were breathtaking. We’re not only talking about an epic font on the inside but also for the title of your book. Only one thing to remember-it MUST be legible or the message will be lost.
- Formatting. There are so many beautiful poetry books out there that are more than just words on a page. The arrangement in some of them is what gets me every time; poetry formatted to look like the shape of a flower in a vase or a sonnet made to look like a balcony are just a few things that I’ve seen over the years that have intrigued me so much! Take a risk on the formatting of your book (the layout of the words on the page) and see how it changes things up for your readers and piques their interest.
