How To Create The Perfect Cover For Your Ebook
Being an ebook writer is one of the most rewarding careers today. You will have the opportunity to make serious money and at the same time you are also able to do what you love most which is writing.
It’s very ironic that people say “don’t judge a book by its cover” because before your book gets published, this is the very first thing that they check/ review. Before you get your book published, make sure that you first prepare a beautiful and an interesting cover. Most if not all the readers out there will take a look at your book’s cover and they will use this as basis if your book is worth their hard earned money or not.
The good thing about the rise of ebooks is that being an author of a book has never been this easy. Each year, more and more people are reaching their goals of becoming a published writer. On the other hand, the bad news is that the competition is greater than ever. You have to give it your 101% if you want your books to be successful. A huge part of that “extra step” is creating the best book cover.
In this article, allow me to share with you some tips that you may use as your guide when creating an ebook cover.
1. The fonts should be clear and simple.
To make your ebook cover more readable, do not use fancy fonts. Even if you use big and simple fonts for the cover of your book, there are thousands of ways to make it interesting and eye-catching.
2. It is not wise to make your cover design too detailed.
Remember that your readers won’t be able to see a full-sized cover when surfing the internet, instead, they will see a very small rectangle. This is why it is a good idea to stick with a minimalist cover design. Because your readers won’t be able to see all the action, you have to choose the elements you put on your ebook’s cover.
3. Don’t make your book flat.
If you are an author of an ebook, then you are aware of the fact that your books do not have a spine. Because of this, you have to find a way to create the depth of your design that will exist on the book itself. A book that is both boring and flat will not sell very well.
