Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a cover, part of Creating EPUBs from a Word Document.
- You should think carefully about your cover.…It is, after all, the cover that attracts…readers to your work in the first place.…And my advice to you, if you don't have a background…in production graphic design, is…to hire someone to create that cover for you.…There are plenty of professional book-jacket designers…for hire out there, and there are also plenty…of fledgling designers who would probably…do a really good job for a very good price.…A simple web search should yield a result fairly quickly,…and most likely, you'll find one in your geographical area.…
Although, with communication being what it is these days,…that isn't so much of an issue.…When you do find someone, check out their work,…see what they've done before, and so on,…as well as drawing up some sort of agreement…with them for the use of their work.…It is a worthwhile investment doing so.…A good business-savvy illustrator should be able…to give you some guidance on these things,…but a bit of reading is always advisable.…
Never, ever, ever use something you found…
