Dave Chesson, aka Kindlepreneur, recently published what I think is the ultimate guide to designing your book cover. While I use Alex of 187Designz for all of my book covers, Dave has compiled a list of:
- The best book cover design software, both paid and free;
- Book cover design templates and pre-made book covers,
- Best book cover designers, helpfully organized by genre and specialty,
- Best book cover design services,
- An exhaustive resource library for making your own book cover,
- More places where you can find designers
Dave even throws in some links and tips on how to test your book cover design to figure out which one your readers will like best!
