At the annual Self-Publishing in the Digital Age conference in London last weekend one of the speakers, who is a graphic designer, advised the audience that they should never pay more than £10 for a picture for their book jacket. The speaker also acknowledged that the jacket picture is the most important choice an author can make when it comes to selling the book.

At another point a man from Amazon.com said they offer 550,000 self-published titles a year and the average title sells 250 copies.
