Heather Paye discusses graphic design:
An often-overlooked feature of the book is the most important one—next to the words, of course—but I’m talking about the appearance of the book: the book cover and the interior layout. The book cover is what entices the reader to pick up the book and read the description on the back, and maybe even flip through the pages of the book. Many times, when an author is writing a book—especially new authors, these things are the last thing they think about, and if you’re planning on self-publishing, it’s very necessary. Creating a book cover early in the book writing process can also be great for marketing and gathering an interest in the book.
But if you’re caught off guard at the last moment, you’ll be rushing around looking for a graphic designer. I know, I’ve done that personally, but that was B.B.G.D (Before Becoming a Graphic Designer).
One thing is for sure, absolutely everyone needs a graphic designer—businesses especially, but even your everyday person! Flyers and business cards aren’t just for the professionals, and who doesn’t want a logo for their blog?

Here are a couple of examples of Heather's work:
Heather Paye has recently become the Ebook Digital Publishing Site/s Coordinator for Writers on the Move. She has uploaded our first group ebook, Writers on the Move Spring 2011: A Compilation of Writing and Marketing Articles, to Smashwords and will be adding it to Kindle in the near future.
In addition to this, I have used Heather’s services to have one of my own ebooks uploaded onto Smashwords.
Heather did a great job for both projects and has been professional in all aspects.
