A Picture Paints a Thousand Words- Designing your Book Cover

They say that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but let’s face it: covers are as important as the words on the page.

In fact, certain authors take book covers so seriously that it alters the content of the book. The American Novella, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, actually went through a rewrite once Fitzgerald’s eyes fell on the iconic eyes of Dr. Eckleburg, which is now synonymous with the book.

Luckily, we at Selfpublishbooks.ie understand the importance of attention to detail when it comes to publishing your pride and joy and we like to work with you to ensure that it’s everything you dreamed of and more.

And on that note, here’s more information on how we can help you create a cover image for your work of art.

Provide your Own Image

Provide your own cover artwork (please contact us for sizing details and artwork specifications etc.), or submit your own photos or illustrations and we will assign a graphic designer to work with you to create a professional cover that will get you noticed on the shelf.

Create a New Cover

We can also work with you to create a design from scratch so you don’t have to worry about its marketing potential. We are here to help you, but you are in full control at every stage of this process.

We can also format and prepare it for ePublishing and manage the distribution to thousands of retailers and libraries worldwide.
