Should indie writers design their books?

For some reason I can’t understand, a “do it yourself” mindset is quite popular among many self-published writers.

In fact, many of them think they are also designers. I don’t know if it’s because certain cloud-based platforms are marketed as “easy-to-use” or because great design looks so simple, so effortless, that one cannot help but feel like it’s easy.

This mindset is so popular that when I decided to put together a course on designing a book for publication, my ambition was to teach writers how to do everything themselves.

After all, that’s what I’ve been doing for the past decade.

Looks like anyone can do it, right?
