Creating a Children’s Chapter Book 17: Cover Design

As we get into the last few chapters of the crowd edit, it’s time to finalise the cover. This was the draft:


I had to neaten up the text and bring the kids to the fore to stand out a bit more on screen (books sold online need to have covers that work when they are only an inch or so wide).



Then I had to decide on the colour, which was tough. I put it out to my friends to decide and…. there was no consensus at all.

So I had to decide. Green it is.
