I just uploaded my second book – My Cousin Megan. Amazon seems to have accepted the book cover image I submitted but Smashwords did not. So I had to go back and make a second one that wasn’t as good as the first one. It was the pixel issue. The image I used was a medium-sized one I got from iStock.com, but the sizing was out of whack I guess. You can’t tell really. So I downloaded the large size, which made all the fonts in Pixlr seem too small, even after I changed the image sizing down the the 2400 pix wide they require.
This the final image I wanted to use.
And here is the second I had to make up on the fly 😦 It’s not as good.
Damn you smashwords, why you so difficult sometimes?
But I seemed to have had a smaple download within the first minute. So the image is luring people in I think 🙂
