Book Cover


The dimensions of a cover and its design vary a lot depending on the size and number of pages in your book. Generally, this is where almost every non-computer savvy writer gets stuck and is unable to design and set his own book cover.

To help our authors we have a huge gallery of designs of book covers that you can choose from when uploading your new book. This gallery will suggest to you all different types of designs based on your Genre of book. You can select any design you like and our team of experts will set the cover and prepare its final file based on this design.

In case you do not like any of our designs, you will also have an option to upload your own design using the upload option available on the cover gallery page.
