Before we put BookBaby’s myth-busting team to work, maybe we should ask ourselves, “What is book design?”
Well, it’s the process of taking all the various components (content, style, format, etc.) and whipping them into a coherent whole– which we call the “book!”
“But I’m just the author,” I hear you say.
Plenty of people out there might tell you that designing an eBook is so easy your goldfish could do it. There are apps for your iPad or browser, and a host of companies that sell eBook conversion software. And design templates, clip art, and stock photos are just a few clicks away.
This week’s featured titles are both quirky, fun eBooks that don’t take themselves too seriously. Everything from the short description to the cover art promises an entertaining read.
Marty Beckerman- The Heming Way
An hilarious guide to masculinity and self-destruction inspired by Ernest Hemingway, the greatest man who ever (drunkenly) walked the earth.
Adrianne Ambrose- Fangs for Nothing
Grab some garlic and start sharpening your mother’s wooden spoons because there are vampires living in the most unlikely of places.
