Book cover plays a 30 -40% role in the sale of any book it’s like a first impression. If you have the best manuscript but a bad cover, then a total disaster n ends up in zero sales. But if you have a normal type of manuscript but a catchy book cover then boom you have skyrocket sales. The book cover is the key to ranking and having sales.
