“The outside sells the inside.” Covers sell ebooks. If your cover is not compelling, readers will never find how good your text is.

Each artist has a different style. Visit their websites to see samples of their work. Find a style that will fit your ebook and appeal to your audience.

Back covers are important too. While ebooks don’t have back covers, they do need sales copy to describe what is in the ebook. You will use the verbiage and order to describe your ebook when you post it to Smashwords, Amazon, etc.
