How to design a best-selling e-book cover?

1. First of all, write a book! All kidding aside, you actually do need a title to create a cover because the picture has to support the title.

2. Browse covers and books that are in the same genre your book is written in, they usually have the same style, so your brain juices start to flow.

3. Choose an image that stands out but tells a small story itself, something that represents the story behind the cover.

4. Bear in mind, that the font on the cover is as important as the picture. Try to stay in the feeling of the genre, meaning, if you have written a romantic novel, maybe a handwritten font suits you best?

5. It’s smart to choose 2-3 main colors and stick with them throughout the series. Also try to choose colors that indicate the overall theme – lighter colors for romance, crisp colors for thrillers.

6. If you are torn between two covers you love, test them amongst your friends and family, this is the quickest way to receive feedback that can help you book.
