On Sunday, August 3, I'll be doing a workshop at the Willamette Writers Conference on Book Cover Design for Less than $50.
The workshop will cover these things:
- Tools: the free GIMP image manipulation program
- Resources: the best stock image resources and free typography resources
- Considerations: the goals of your design, things to watch out for
- Techniques: using single images, manipulating color and images for effect, combining multiple images, and more. I'll show the original art used, the type selected, and the process of putting them together for a number of books, including fiction, memoir, and non-fiction.
So I'm building a Powerpoint presentation on the above right now and I got to thinking--maybe people who visit FtQ would be interested in a book covering those topics.
The book would be an ebook, a PDF at the minimum, maybe a Kindle version. It would cover all the topics listed for the workshop, and be illustrated with many many color examples. I think a good price would be $2.99 or $3.99.
So please give me some insight with the poll below--you can enter multiple answers.
Many thanks, and I hope to see you at the workshop.
