We’ve got some prison ebook covers up at selfpubbookcovers and we have many more covers to browse through.
A special author/publisher alert from Smashwords founder, Mark Coker. https://www.smashwords.com/about/updates
We’ve been designing ebook covers for 9 years, and have always been happy to do an unlimited number of proofs for our clients, but we’ve had so many looky loos who disappear somewhere along the design process that we’ve decided to institute a $20 Start Fee for new clients. The time we lose in these fruitless endeavors is better devoted to our valued clients who are serious about having Caligraphics design a book cover for them.
Some promotional materials we’ve designed.
“How much does it cost to publish my book in print at Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP, formerly CreateSpace)?”, we get asked. Well, it’s free, and you set your price, whatever you think the market can bear. When someone buys your book Amazon deducts their printing costs from the price you set for your book and you get the rest. There’s more information here. If you click on the yellow Download button you get a pretty cool Excel file and you can input various numbers and figure your costs and profits.
It’s 1963, before the Beatles and the JFK assassination. It’s a lazy summer with nothing for the teenagers in the small town of Calhoun, just outside Cincinnati, to worry about except rock’n’roll, drag racing, and dancing. But then the murders begin. Available on Amazon as an ebook or in print.
