They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but when it comes to books for publishing, this may be a misapplied saying looking at the fact that we are so naturally inclined to judge a book as appealing looking at it from its cover. Thus it is a fact that needs to be acknowledged that book cover design has the potential to make or break a literary work.
It has already been hinted above that the book cover design indeed influences so much your book’s marketing. As a matter of fact and one you can be assured of is that however nice your works may be, having stringed together the best of works and words in your book, in the event that you happen to have not the best cover design instead having one that appears like one done by an amateur designer, you can be sure of seeing your books sitting and gathering dust on the shelves for quite some long time, getting the least of sales.
As such as an author of such good works of literary texts, you need to ensure that you spare your readers the embarrassments that are a result of an awesome book having a sad representation of the quality of the book.
This need for a good book cover design is as well an essential thing to look in to where you are looking at the needs of the curious browsers for the eBooks. eBooks in fact are ranking highest in the global sales of books, accounting for over one third of the book sales. Looking at the clicks that you get on the eBooks, these are as well such that will be impacted on by the nature of the cover that is on the eBooks you have online. Ordinarily, you need to be aware of the fact that online there is so much information and options available for the browsers and as such most will be of the opinion and inclination to use the visual clues as they make up their minds over the fake from the sure deals. From this it is as such apparent that where you happen to fail packaging your book as is supposed to be, then the fact is that you are going to lose out in the competition that is so stiff online.
In a nutshell, you will realize that the book cover design matters for two things. First and foremost is the fact that it is what will make buyers pick on your books from the bookshelf and or click on them online.
