eBook Cover Design

On February 16, 2011, in eBook Resources, by admin

“The outside sells the inside.” Covers sell books. If your cover is not compelling, readers will never find how good your text is.

You will need a cover in full size and thumbnail; in .TIF, .JPG and PDF. You cover artist will supply the files.

Each artist has a different style. Visit their websites to see samples of their work. Find a style that will fit your eBook and appeal to your audience.

Back covers are important too. While eBooks don’t have back covers, they do need sales copy to describe what is in the eBook. Use a paint-by-numbers back cover outline and fill in the boxes. Get Document 116, Book Cover Worksheet (free) by clicking here. You will use the verbiage and order to describe your eBook when you post it to Smashwords, Amazon, etc.
