Yes, I do pay my bills through m ebook cover designs and formatting. However, I also understand that we are all on a tight budget. (Which is why I sometimes have to work for under minimum wage.)
Well, if you can’t afford the $25 it takes to get a cover done by me or someone else there’s a new resource for you. It’s a free ebook entitled, How to Make a Simple Book Cover for a Non-Designer by Kate Harper.
The description reads, “This is a tutorial with illustrations will tell you how to make a simple book cover for a non-designer. It is a step-by-step guide with generous images to explain exactly what digital tools you need, how to do it for free. All you need to is a photograph.
Author Kate Harper is a product designer who is inspired by the merging of art and technology, and is active in the new media, art licensing and DIY communities.
