    Just as a reference point, is the World of Warcraft logo(on their books) considered an imprint or a business logo. I had a discussion on one of the fb groups that logos make the book amateurish. I am trying to come up with a logo for the books coming from the same world/universe, or should I focus on getting the book published before I worry about the logo/imprint. Stressing over the cover stopped my steps toward writing book two of the series.

    • Yes – you’re totally right, this is an old post. It’s probably not worth wasting time worrying about a logo – and it would only be a little button for the spine, not really a big header or something for the front cover. My point was, make something simple and text only with a nice font, not a big graphic.
