You Need a Designer! (via @KeyboardHussy)

Stephany Simmons guest-posts on Evelyn Lafont's blog, Keyboard Hussy, about the importance of professionalism in self-publishing. Although Keyboard Hussy has now gone into 'archive mode' as Evelyn continues to do her own writing, I thought I'd link to a recent post. Stephany says:

Stephany provides these services to authors through her Pasty Hen online design business. I'd normally post this as a Sunday Service, but I already have a market lined up for monday, so I'm sneaking it in here.
