Judith Briles: How to Create a Killer Book Cover

Here are a few key tips from Judith Briles, The Book Shepherd, on how to create killer book covers. Remember: Killer book covers sell books, lots more books!

Spy! Become a competitive book spy. On Amazon, how does your book cover compare to other books in looks and presentation? Your book should look, feel, and be like those created by major book publishers.

Brand! Brand your series. If you have a series, get the series name on the cover. It’s branding and promotion.

Brand Brand! Think branding: colors, images, fonts, even the size of your name comes into play.

Pop! Before you finalize your cover design, reduce it to 25% size. Does it pop? Can you read the title and see the images?

Focus! Only have one major focus for your book cover.
