An attractive, attention-grabbing cover is the best draw for your book.
A cover is required for inclusion in the Smashwords Premium Catalog, and Apple, Amazon, and other vendors tout an attention-grabbing, attractive professional book cover as the best way to draw potential readers to your book.
Note: A front cover, back cover and spine are required for Createspace (POD).

- I will provide you with two covers for ebooks: one for submission to Amazon and other venues at 2000 x 3000 pixels and a thumbnail pic for use on your website (or wherever) at 200 x 300.
- I will provide you with one cover for print books: .jpg format created at 325 DPI and correctly sized for your trim size, page count and page color (white or cream). A PDF is available upon request.
- Any photos you provide must be in .jpg format and at least 300 DPI for best quality. Important: by sending the photo to me and authorizing me to use it to create your book cover , you are affirming that you either own the photo or you own the necessary rights to use it. (I will not work with public domain photos, so please don’t ask.) You retain all rights to your photos and to the cover I create from your photo or part of your photo. I suggest you provide me with a sample of the photo or the stock # so I can view it before purchase. I can purchase the photo for you, but the cost of the photo will be added to the cover fee.
- Of necessity, I reserve the right to refuse any job for any reason.
