THE FILTRATION SYSTEM:
THE CUSTOM COVER DESIGN: $300
After the Deep Water and Nesting Services have been completed, the custom cover design is the most critical part of your Marketing Pond's Design. Your book's cover is the Filtration System that attracts readers to begin turning pages. Without a thoughtfully created cover, specific to your unique story, your book will not float upon the waves closest to the shoreline, within easy reach of your audience.
THE WATER PUMP: THE AUTHOR WEBSITE: $400
The amount of maintenance your book's Marketing Pond requires generally depends on the type of Water Pump that bubbles your your pond to avoid stagnation. In the book world, your Water Pump is your author website. For example, if the pump sits at the bottom of the pond, with no attention from you, then you may find yourself involved in major dredging of algae and parasites, which could involve a complete pond redesign. This can get rather expensive in both time and money... especially if you're busy writing your next book, and don't have the time to devote to dredging.

A standard website includes the following pages (additional pages can be added on as your career grows at $25 per page):
