Before I began marketing my book, "Splinters: The Pain, The Passion, The Point" I was under the impression as most writers are, that the WRITING was the most important part of my book. And while, I'm not saying that the writing isn't important, a lesson that I learned early on as an author was the importance of the book cover and design itself.
