Michael N. Marcus discusses writing, editing, design, publishing, language, culture, politics and sometimes other things. He often skewers inept publishers and writers. It's his duty and compulsion. It's important and often funny. If you present work to the public, you must be able to withstand criticism. If your feelings get hurt easily, keep your work private. When you seek praise, you risk derision. Either produce pro-quality work by yourself or get help from qualified professionals.

Authors: keep your ego off your book covers until you are famous

Later on, if you become
famous, you can revise the covers of your earlier books. More about book covers, The Look of a Book: what makes a book cover good or bad and how to design a good one: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BAPV724
