Ron’s Tip of the Day Book Cover and more

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Today I am looking at Book Cover and more.

Ideas for this Article come from Penny Sansevieri, Author Marketing Experts

Book Cover

Different publishers have different criteria for your book covers. We use the criteria that KDP requires. When we are working with an author, we point out that when using the Kindle Direct Publishing platform, you have access to templates that come with pictures or you can provide your own. If you are using the proper dimensions, the picture will fit within their templates forming a great cover.

Some people prefer to hire outside help and use their own pictures. Please remember to get someone who is certified to create KDP approved covers. Failure to do that will delay your book’s progress.

About the Book or Information Sheet

In your Media Kit you can have information that would also be included on your website. Here you include a sheet that tells a reviewer the Title, Subtitle (if any), Author, Publisher, Release Date, Category, ISBN, Format/editions, and Price. Follow with: Please mail a copy of the review (‘interview’ or ‘Tear sheet’) to your name or your publicist.

Book Plate Labels

These are attached in separate documents. The labels should be on Avery 8164 or equivalent.

Tip of the Day : Know the publishers criteria for covers; don’t forget About the Book and Labels.

My wife (Tess) and I are authors and co-founders of T&R Independent Books. Founded in 2014 TR publishes our books and promotes writing. While we write in two different genres (Tess in Teen and mystery, myself in historical fiction) both writings are from a Christian perspective. I am first a Christian and secondly an author. I love writing about Old Testament saints. Whenever I write I always try to place myself within the primary character's shoes. In long novels that means I may focus on different characters at differing times. The result hoped for is that I bring the character to life. Apparently, according to reviewers, I have achieved this. I also write in Speculative fiction (future history, if you will), plus we've not started TR Writing Services to assist new and struggling authors to write and publish using the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform. And we keep our prices low.
