Create eBook cover with MS Word – Wow!
The Best - How To Make Your Own Free Book Cover In MS Word by Joanna Penn.
What she created and how she created it was amazing!
Spending several weeks learning all sorts of new tricks on how to create a book cover on Microsoft PowerPoint – sadly enough I have been avoiding this blog. So following the last post I wrote (of which I wrote several) I wanted to share some things I have run across in my very extensive online searches.
First let me point out – the internet is filled with a lot of garbage.
I am not talking about gambling, porn or other questionable websites. I am talking about website that offer very little in substance and might I say that it’s a shame that they rank high on the Google search list.
I’ve visited site after site that promised to give you information and all they did was offer links to other sites, reference sites or give you a small tidbit of information they gleamed somewhere else. Not cool – especially when my eyes where rolling back into my head from all the searching I was doing.
But I am glad to say that I did find some excellent websites that taught me a lot of what I needed to know and that linked to wonderful informative instructional information. Of which I mention in my eBook.
One of the websites I most enjoyed and was completely surprised to find was the website that performs very well in teaching people how to create an eBook cover using MS Word. Honestly I was surprised! Don’t get me wrong I still believe MS PowerPoint is the best way to create a book cover for print or eBook format, but I loved the way she explained the process and the image cover she created before your very eyes
I’ve put an excerpt of her site with a link below – but fair warning: the best stuff is way at the bottom of her blog post.
