5. Remember: You Can’t Please Everyone
The final piece of advice comes from Stephen King: “If you write (or paint or dance or sculpt or sing, I suppose), someone will try to make you feel lousy about it, that’s all.”
According to an article on Business Insider, the revelation that every decent writer has been accused of being a waste of talent gave King the confidence to say, to those trying to make him feel lousy about his writing, “If you disapprove, I can only shrug my shoulders. It’s what I have.”
I decided to do a list of Facebook Groups I belong which ALL do premade covers. Pretty much all of the groups require you to request membership. Groups like these are valuable for Authors like myself who are always hunting for places to get their covers from.

That’s ONE endorsement I will give for the designers I’ve had a pleasure working with or with whom I’m currently working… To make sure this list is impartial I will not indicate which groups I’ve gotten covers from.
