    That's the way I see it. Considering the hours and sweat that go into writing a novel, it hardly seems like a good idea to try and save few bucks by trying to do your own cover. For most people that is, because there are certainly exceptions.

    Good advice too on how to hire a designer. Also, look at a portfolio. Get some references. And by all means, get an estimate. That's often where things go south, especially if you use a friend or acquaintance, or someone you assume you can trust.

    And ask for a schedule. Also, clarify what you'll be seeing in the way of preliminary designs, or if you'll see more than one thing from which to choose.

    Usually, no one's out to cheat anyone -- but get it all in writing, so there are no misunderstandings.
