You've heard the old saying "Don't judge a book by its cover"? Well don't believe it. You have only 2-3 seconds to make an impression on your reader, convincing him or her to pick up your book and consider reading or purchasing it. In fact, with more than 4 million book titles available in print, your book cover design can be the single most important item in making your book stand out from others, ultimately determining its success.
The colours used, the type of artwork, even the size and type of fonts used on the cover all give your reader a message about what type of book they are holding. Thus, you want to be sure to convey the right message with a customised design that will sell the maximum amount of copies.
With the Xlibris Custom Cover Upgrade, you personally communicate your ideas to one of our in-house cover designers to create something truly exceptional. Image manipulation such as tinting or montaging allows you to reach out and grab the reader's attention and make them want to read what is inside. Using a variety of types of images including photography, graphic elements and custom illustrations, we work with you to achieve a design that will sell your book.
The Xlibris Custom Cover Upgrade is available when you publish with the Professional Publishing Packages for $500.
