When it comes time to design a cover for your book, it really is worth it to find an experienced book designer who can create a beautiful, professional-looking cover that will sell your story. Here are some concepts that you should keep in mind as you work with your designer.
Effective book covers are those that are so intriguing they make you want to open the book to find out what it’s about. The best way to work on this with your designer is to uncover the true meaning of the book and then pluck a single image from the text that can support it. It’s better for the cover to be simple and strong rather than complicated and cluttered. Looking to other book covers for inspiration may help you settle on a concept.
