Sorry that it’s been so long since I’ve added premades to the gallery (or updated the custom gallery for that matter). I’ve been busy with custom orders for quite a long stretch now, but I still want to offer up easy premade purchases. So here’s one for a fantasy or paranormal cover. Contact amatthews@amdesignstudios.net to purchase. Will be customized to your name, title, blurb and any series. Will work for all online ebook outlets. Print rights can be purchased for the additional spine/back design fee.

I’ve been working on my own cover in my spare time (wait…what’s spare time?) for a new miniseries that I have not officially announced yet! The book will be released before Book 2 of the ShadowLight Saga. It’s entitled, Betrothal –  Queen’s Honor: Tales of Lady Guinevere, Part 1 - A YA Fantasy Romance retelling of the Arthur/Lancelot/Guinevere love triangle from the point of view of a young Guinevere.

So, I’m sharing the cover design here first. Shh…don’t tell my alter ego, Mande Matthews. She’ll be upset I didn’t announce it on her blog first.

Sorry for not posting more regulary! I have been busy on custom covers for the past couple months. Below, please find Inger Iversen’s new cover for Awakened!

I’ve worked with Inger before and we set up some branding standards together. She’s a joy to work with and discovered as she wrote book two, she wanted to incorporate a more realistic look to her cover characters. Inger had already chosen the couple and we worked with her previous cover and branding standards, along with a strong visual idea that Inger had imagined for the next cover to come up with this one.

Formatting for Kindle Ebook

Dowload for a Formatting Sample

My first attempt at getting through the Smashwords meat grinder took about a week—a week to read through the intensive manual, then an entire day to get past the frustrating “auto vetter” errors. The next day I blocked for taking my Smashwords eBook file and converting it to Kindle eBook format. After that, came converting for Nook. Three days all together. Three days that could have been spent writing. At my 1500 a day word count, that’s 4500 words! Nearly a short story!

When formatting “The Light Keepers – a ShadowLight Saga Prequel,” I cheated. Since it had been five months since my last upload, I’d forgotten all the Smashwords and Kindle formatting rules. So, I used Ann Mauren to format my file. She formatted one document that worked for all platforms without one single error, saving me days of work. It literally took me ten minutes at each site to publish my book. Plus, Ann addressed some of the formatting issues I had skipped before, such as hyperlinking all my chapters instead of letting Smashwords and Word do it “their way.”

Thanks to Ann, here’s what I learned: a well formatted eBook file can work for: Amazon, Smashwords and Barnes and Noble with just a few tweaks and save you a whole lot of time—a task well-worth outsourcing to a pro.

Want to see a sample of a perfectly formatted eBook? Download “The Light Keepers” from Smashwords for free. If you need help formatting your own eBook, contact Ann Mauren—she’s fast, affordable, dependable and detailed—an indie author ally and self-publishing arsenal must.
