Despite the old cliché, your prospective eBook and print buyers will judge your book by its cover.

A great book or eBook cover design is one of your best sales tools, instantly conveying the key thoughts, messages, and images that sum up your book. That’s why it’s essential for you to stand out from everyone else on those crowded eBook retail sites and bookshelves.

And it goes beyond the old cliché. According to Deloitte’s research paper, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Predictions 2015: “A key value of print books appears to be their cover. Covers have been shown to drive sales; but they also send a message to those around you about what you are reading and what kind of person you are. As has been noted, ‘the act of reading a book in public conveys important information to other readers.’”

A great cover design can also speak to fans of a genre and tell a little (or a lot) about the style of writing and the genre your book fits into. A professional eBook cover created by the BookBaby Design Studio will ensure you make an impression on the audience you’re trying to entice.

We’ve set up a beautiful design gallery on Pinterest featuring some standouts produced by the professionals in the BookBaby Design Studio. Here are just a few samples.
