I'm asking this because I've been writing my book for about four years now, and I'm nearly done the first draft. I'm currently a first-year in college taking Graphic Design. I've heard that writers usually have little-to-no say on what goes on their book's cover, and publishers hire artists, and graphic designers to do the job instead. So my question; could I design my own book?
