      Good Morning Angela,
      Awesome to connect with you. I started in graphic design in 2008 by doing a Graphic and Advertising Design course. But most of what I learned in graphic design came from practicing as often as I could. You know, most of these courses teaches a lot of theory, but less practical. So Ill suggest that since you are interested in specialising in Book Cover Design, to find some tutorials online or do a course specifically in book cover design. Start by creating a cover a week for yourself, even while working full time. This way, you will build up your personal portfolio. In the meantime, also sign up to various freelancer platforms such as Upwork, Kolabtree, 99Designs, DesignHill to create your design profile. Hope that will help you get started? Let me know if you need any further help? (Ps. We will actually be launching our first photoshop design course later in Sept. Ill send you invite to have a look. Its a practical course.).

      Have a great day!
