How do you find your cover art? Well, it’s an important question. You can’t use just any photo on your covers. Make sure they are royalty free.
Also, if you’re book is a historical romance you don’t need to put a modern couple on the cover. You’d mislead the reader and believe me you don’t want a mad reviewer on your hands. Make sure your cover goes with the book content.
Also, you want to use a good picture. Don’t use a cheesy photo that looks photo cropped in. The cover is the first thing a potential reader sees when deciding to buy your book. If it draws them in then they’ll probably buy your book. I’ve bought several books based on the covers alone.
Our company uses several different photo sites including Bigstockphoto.com and Istockphoto.com. What website do you use? Has it been a beneficial site for you?
If you’re struggling with your cover design, give us a try. Our design department can design a great cover based on your ideas or we’ll give you a couple of choices based on your book.
Hope you have a great evening…
