  What Comes First - The Cover or The eBook?
 by: Ovi Dogar

One of biggest trend these days is related to ebooks. Because of their viral nature, ebooks are a great
way to increase traffic to a site and that's why everyone has to write at least one.

There are millions of ebooks online and everyday there are at more then one hundred new ebooks
that hit the stands of the online library. Some of them are free, other not. But they are all full of fresh
information or they will be forgotten.

As a reader, it's tough to decide which one to read and which not. That's why most surfers do pretty
much the same thing they do in a real library.

Remember the last time you were in a real library or bookstore? If you are like me, you will more than
likely base your decision of reading or buying a book on the first stimulus that catch your eye. And
that one stimulus is the COVER.

And that's the way everyone decides to read or buy a book: THEY LOOK AT THE COVER AND
MAKE THEIR DECISION BASED ON IT!

So, what must accomplish a great cover?

First, it has to be an eye-catching cover so the visitor will pick up your ebook instead of the ebook of
your competitors.

Second, even if the cover piqued your visitor's attention it also have to be interesting enough to make
him actually read your ebook.

How can you make a cover to stand out in a sea of covers?

Well, this is not an easy task if you have no design experience? Why? Because, even if your cover is
different then all the other ones, it may be different in a wrong way.

You have to consider the general nuance of color for the cover, the main and the secondary font.

Here are a few general tips for you: The colors tell a lot about the general subject of the ebook so you
must use them accordingly Use a combination between red, blue, black and white Yellow it's OK
used sparingly in combination with black because it generates the strongest contrast Always use a
strong font for the main title - Impact its fine if the title is longer and Arial Black for shorter ones. If your
ebook is on a lighter subject you can toy around with different fonts but never use more than three
different fonts for the same cover The cover should contain: the main title one teaser phrase or a
good subtitle the author name and eventually the URL of the ebook (avoid using http:// and
subdirectories) usually a simple domain name will do just fine.

And finally one more tip: always KISS: Keep It Simple Stupid. Do not forget that the cover will be a
small image and if you fill it with lot of info, it will be unreadable.

                        Ecover Design Software - How to Design Your Own Ebook Cover
                                                           By Tom Williamsenn



If you are looking into writing your own ebook, you are probably thinking of getting a graphic designer
to work on your ebook cover. However, you are aware of how these graphic designers could be when it
comes to pricing their services. Thankfully, there is way to solve this. You could actually design the
cover of your own ebook yourself. Now that is something that would totally cut off the cost of the
publishing of the ebook. Since you are going to do the cover without the help of a professional graphic
designer, the publishing of your ebook would require less capital. This would make your success more
achievable because you could get higher profits from your ebook in less time.

 The secret to this is to get your own ecover design software and let it do all the work for you. The great
thing about this software is you could operate it even when you clearly do not have any background in
graphic designer. Even if you have never done anything that is artistic before and have drawn only
stick figures your whole life, you sure will be able to operate an ecover design software.

 Becoming a member of the software provider would give you access to the online forums containing
detailed instructions on how to operate the software in case of trouble shooting but you would not really
need that because the software would be so easy to use. All you need to do is upload the photo that
you want to be in the cover of your ebook and choose which type of cover you would like your ebook to
have. There are over 200 ebook styles you could choose from, guaranteeing that the overall look of
your ebook would be according to your satisfaction. You would not have to pick less than the best for
you because with all the choices for the ebook styles, you sure would find at least one that would suit
your taste. Among the over 200 ebook covers you could pick, there are even covers with reflections.
You could pick those if you wish to make your ebook have a three dimensional look and make it
appear more realistic. Of course, having an ebook that looks more real than the others would have
more attention and would therefore have more buyers.

 Once you have uploaded the photo you want to be put in the cover and have picked the ebook style
and shape you like, you could now proceed to editing the cover. You could create various effects found
in other photo editor softwares. You could customize the size of the working area and use tools to flip
the photo horizontally and vertically. You could also edit the photo’s opacity and even rotate it however
you want.

 With your own ecover design software, you would not have to worry about paying for a designer that
would ask for ridiculously high fees. All you need to do is purchase a membership in one of the many
ecover design software providers and do the covers on your own.

boxes, or even Virtual 3D Cover!
