3. Publish Your Book

Built for CreateSpace and Kindle, our book covers remove the stress and uncertainty of creating a book cover.

We make sure every cover meets the technical aspects required by these two publishers. Your cover is guaranteed.

“In addition to promising what a book will deliver, the [cover] image also promises, or fails to promise, that the author is a professional, and that the book will honor the reader’s time.”

Mark Coker, founder SmashWords

“A [book] also requires some kind of preamble, a throat clearing, an entryway, an antechamber. Jackets are the visual equivalent to the foreword, or to a front door.”

Peter Mendelsund, Slate
