Found your site from Fred Langa. Great site. Very interesting and informative. Please tell me from where did you get your three book cover designs? They are most eye catching and professional.
Thanks, Robert. I designed all my own book covers except “How to Add Games to Your Site” which was designed by Brian Terry of eBookWow.
To create the others, I followed the free tutorial and used the free templates
available at Cover Art Guide. This fabulous free tutorial teaches you how to use Compact Draw (a $28 try-before-you-buy download.) I highly recommend it.
On the other hand, many gurus swear that information products with “ugly” book covers do much better. For example, take a look at these covers:
Sherpa Store>, 101 Public Relations, and Succeeding in Business.
One day I will test my “pretty” How-to-Add-Games cover against an “ugly” one. How will I do the test? I am installing
Split Hit to run a split-test run. I will let you know how it turns out.
P.S. Many of the resources I mentioned in this post are gone. Here’s an updated recommendation for making ebook covers with a Photoshop plugin.
