Purpose of Logo
A logo makes all your work easily recognizable. It stands out among the written words to say that if someone is looking for you, they have found you. Think of it as a brand that only your work has.
DIY or Hire
Next comes the question of how to create your logo. Should you do it yourself or hire someone to do it? The answer depends on you. If you want something simple, you can do it yourself easily. All you need is Microsoft Paint or any other image manipulating tool. Create whatever you want.
Or you can hire someone who can do it and probably have more intricate ideas than if you did it yourself. I wouldn’t suggest paying more than $75 for a logo. Shop around and see who can give you the best deal on a logo you can really be proud of.
The Perfect One
The logo you want is not what others have. It has to reflect you as an author. It has to be recognizable as you. You’ll know the perfect one when you see it.
