Below is a slightly altered version of my post at NovelSpaces today. It raises an issue in self-publishing that has not been addressed much . . . or at least none of my friends have talked or blogged about it. The issue is how to design a good cover when one is self-publishing in both trade paperback and ebook formats.
Here is the NovelSpaces post with my ebook cover design added:
- is very simple
- is brightly colored
- is bold
- uses large typefaces for the title and author name
- fits the Kindle's preferred 5x8 proportions
