Panzer and I have been working on a new ebook cover today. We decided we'd put together a cover for a short story we finished last week.
While looking for an image to use, we came across fiction writer S.M. (Sara) Reine's posts. She has three posts explaining how she put the cover together for her YA novel Six Moon Summer.
Her instructions are: Post 1: Concept, Post 2: The Rough Draft, and Post 3: Revisions, Titles, and Printing. She has samples for each post and explains how and why she did each step. As you finish each post, you can click to the next in the series.
I love the cover for this book! You'll find the instructions at S.M. Reine's blog at Designing Your Book Cover.
