You cannot judge a book by its cover, but it’s truly disappointing when you are looking forward to reading a book, and it’s filled with grammatical errors.
One book I wanted to enjoy had a beautiful glossy cover and enticing title. Unfortunately, I could not get pass the first page. It was horrible! As much as I wanted to move on, I just couldn’t. So, to anyone planning to self-publish a book, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pay an editor. It will be well worth it.
The second book I was advised to purchase is in no logical order. I’m trying to read it now. It would be more pleasurable if the flow was better. To inspiring self-published authors, have a couple people to critique your flow prior to publishing.
No matter how good a book looks on the outside, quality beats quantity any day. A book will lose its essence very quickly if the content does not meet expectations.
