If you are writing an ebook for release on the Kindle Direct Publishing platform, then it should go without saying that your potential readers will want quality content on the inside, but what will you be putting on the outside?
Your Kindle eBook Cover Design is Another
Whatever topic you do decide to write about in a particular genre, your ebook cover will also need to be of good quality.
Your Kindle ebook cover is the first visual representation of your books content, and yes, people do still judge a book, even an ebook, by it’s cover, so make yours count!
Hiring a designer to create your ebook cover can restrict your first steps into Kindle publishing on financial grounds. They are, quite rightly, not cheap to have designed professionally.
However, high quality Kindle ebook covers are not difficult to create yourself, but you can easily create a poor quality, unattractive or over fussy cover if you don’t follow some really simple guidelines.
You’ll find those simple to follow guidelines in our Kindle eBook Cover Design Workshop
The ebook cover examples (above and right), demonstrate how a plain and rather unattractive Cover can be simply transformed into an eye-catching Kindle eBook Cover.
Covers are Making a Difference!
The ‘before’ eCover for Paul’s book certainly was very unattractive and not very inviting for prospective readers.
Paul updated the content of his ebook, it was converted to Kindle format and his cover re-designed, with a little help from us here at VWA.
Now, not only is his new ebook cover eye-catching, with a great image of his art and craft work, the new version of his Papier Mache Manual, is enjoying a steady and growing number of sales, that will help support his social voluntary organisation work.
Paul’s Kindle eBook Cover was created using a template from the Kindle eBook Cover Design Workshop
Paul heads a Social Voluntary organization in India. “I use my arts and craft to teach the poor and unemployed young people to learn a skill so that they can be empowered and bring economic empowerment. The world has given so much to me and I must give back before I leave this world.” www.provisionindia.org
