An eBook needs a competent cover design to get noticed, just like any lady or man would dress to stand out in the crowd. So, check out the following tips that have proved to be useful for creating a brilliant eBook cover design.
Remember the Thumbnail
If people are to notice what you have written in your eBook, then the cover must be good enough to pick your eBook. So, how can you do this trick? Normally, if you browse around online bookstores, you will see the cover page will be displayed with a simple thumbnail only. It is this thumbnail image that should catch the eye of the reader. It will take only a few seconds to attract the reader or to just pass by it.
Therefore, design a bright and vibrant cover with a good font size and design to grab the attention of the readers. Take time and check out other covers and study different styles, or hire a professional for this job.
The space of the front cover should be used to display what the eBook is about. So, give an idea in a simple legible manner along with small thrilling descriptions that could boost the curiosity in the mind of the reader. Nothing too confusing and the page should not be stuffed with many drawings or writings.
Get the Message Across
The design of the eBook should not wander off into another subject. If your story intends to talk about the love story of a lady who lived in the country side, she should be projected as an elegant lady sitting in an old fashioned country house with the photo of her loved one beside her. Keep it direct and simple.
The message and the picture should not be misleading. Try to create a powerful impact and get the right message across through a sensible and striking eBook cover.
Focus on details like the backdrop of the story. Pay more attention on the font size and style of writing. The font should be bold and not in running font or italics. If the eBook is inclined for the youth, a colourful cover is fine. An eBook for the older generation may need more subtle colours.
If you intend to display a scary or eerie story, then do make use of the shadow effects and create a dark background for the eBook cover. If your eBook is focussing on some real life animals or people, try infusing a photo or two and small bubbles to convey the gist of the eBook.
Make your eBook cover stand out from the crowd. Compare your design with other eBooks in the same category. The emotional feelings should merge with the genre of the intended story. A detective picture will display feelings of suspense, fear and excitement, whereas a picture showing a small Indian village focuses on a simple Indian story like the Malgudi days.
Although a cover cannot guarantee tremendous sales of your eBook, it sure can encourage people to try reading your piece of art at any time. The unique design will surely capture the minds of readers and that is enough to urge them to buy your eBook.
