Is Your E-Book Cover Great? Booktango Says “Ask Your Friends”
New cover design social functionality enables authors to gather feedback from their Facebook and Twitter contacts to ensure cover art has greater mass market appeal
BLOOMINGTON, IND. July 26, 2012 - Booktango™, the DIY free e-book publishing platform from Author Solutions, Inc., today announced Booktango now offers enhanced social features that enable e-book authors to create better e-book cover art. Now authors can enlist their Facebook and Twitter social network contacts to help determine the best design for their cover art.
“Designing an e-book cover that stands out in crowded online bookstores is an important part of the publishing experience. Booktango has created a robust set of tools for authors to design and compare alternate covers for their book,” said Chris Bass, director of marketing for Booktango. “Now with new social features, you can rely on your social community to guide the cover design process ensuring the finished product appeals to a mass reader audience.”
During the DIY cover design process, Booktango users can easily export and share their unpublished e-book cover art with their friends, family and professional contacts through Twitter and Facebook. By making cover design collaborative, Booktango is ensuring that an e-book cover will be as appealing and attractive as possible. “The fact is, people do judge a book by its cover, so why not enlist friends and prospective readers to help make your cover the best it can be,” continued Bass.
