We will be recording the workshop. Any handouts and the recording link to the workshop will be provided after the event. Attendees will be added to A Writer's World ezine for updates on Writers on the Move upcoming webinars, along with writing and marketing information.

DESCRIPTION:

What author today hasn’t thought of self-publishing a book through Kindle? If a poll were taken, the results would probably be close to 100 percent. Most will have either considered or are considering this new wave of publishing freedom.

In fact, ebook authors and marketers, such as Jim Edwards, consider traditional publishing as a weak link in your writing armor, especially in regard to information ebooks.

Whether you want to publish with Kindle or you prefer selling your ebooks from your own website, you’ll need a cover. But, not just any cover, you’ll need a unique and appealing cover. A cover that may very well be the determining factor as to whether a potential customer clicks on the BUY button.

You might be thinking that you’re not tech savvy and don’t have any special programs for the job. Well, if you have Microsoft Word 2010, you don’t need anything else. Most of this is possible with MS 2007, and possibly MS 2003. You’ll have to test it out.

And, aside from creating great book covers, you can create amazing business logo designs with the same process.

Join Karen for step-by-step instructions as she actually creates an ebook cover on this screen-sharing webinar.

  2. HI, Mary Jo, I hope it gives others enough information to create their own covers.

  3. Karen, I'm sure it will

    Mary Jo, I read Karen's ebook and worked most of the way through designing a cover for my poetry book. It was a very good first attempt, IMO, but it needed refining. I was very nervous about attempting this but Karen's directions were clear and easy to follow. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Karen's ebook as well as the webinar, and I would not hesitate to try to design a cover again, should the need arise.

  8. This is a great course. I wish I didn't already have plans. Would this work with Open Office?

  9. Kristi, I think it should - you'd have t check it out. I had Open Office and many of the features were the same as Word, so I'm guessing it should.

  11. Good luck with the seminar, I'm an Adobe girl but think this sounds like a great one for you to run. So many authors are letting down their work with dodgy looking covers.

  12. Sheri, Glad I stopped by here. I'll contact you.

    Charmine, I use Photoshop Elements at times also, but found MS Office to be so easy, I now tend to lean toward it.
