How to Get a Cheap Book Cover – UPDATED!
I’ve recently updated my how to book How to Get a Cheap Book Cover by Joleene Naylor. Updates include:
- A tutorial on how to use Create Space’s cover creator
- A tutorial on how to make an ebook cover in Paint.Net
- Fixed broken links
- Added new links
- Fixed a couple of typos
- Updated information on acceptable file types
If you’ve already purchased the book through Smashwords, I believe you can download the updated version for free. I don’t know about the other sites, such as Barnes & Noble, though it will be a few days before the changes filter through the expanded market, anyway.
Here’s what people are saying about How to Get a Cheap Book Cover:
“VERY helpful! I was like a raft adrift on the adriatic and this book was the ocean liner that came to my salvation.” – Robin Donaruma on March 07, 2012 (on Smashwords.com)
“I downloaded this book to help me design the cover for my novel, A Military Republic. The book has excellent advice about licensing photos, websites for buying photos and above all an invaluable guide to using gimp for designing the cover. I definitely recommend this to cover designing beginners.” – Haythem Bastawy on Feb. 25, 2012 (on Smashwords.com)
“This was a huge help when we were creating covers for my husband’s e-books. This is the first time we’ve done any sort of e-publishing, and we were pretty ignorant of even the basics. I especially liked the information on licensing and sources for images.” – Marjorie Farmer on Nov. 10, 2011 (on Smashwords.com)
