Dreaming in Book Design

This one is going to be a short post. I had an interesting dream last night about book design. I can’t get away from it. I know.

I won’t get into the details of the dream, but it got me thinking about something I haven’t touched on yet in this blog series. If you’ve been receiving this by email, it might seem confusing and out of order, so I’ll try to keep it concise and as reasonable as possible. Here goes.

When were talking about book design, we can be talking about a lot of different things. We can be talking about design that simply looks beautiful and brings a sense of feeling to the person looking at it. I think that’s what most design blogs are usually talking about. The art of design. Clever design. Or really talented designers coming up with some amazing work.

What we’re usually talking about at flotsampoetry is design that’s going to help your book in the marketplace, most notably in Amazon sales. Forget bookstores. They’re dying a quick and painful death.

I forgot to mention that another thing that has actually happened to me as a result of a good book cover: Amazon will actually email  out to people recommending your book, so as it comes to inbox from Amazon saying you might like this. Which is again they can only do that targeting if they have enough numbers to crunch, which is where the free giveaway is super powerful.

You sold me paid and in so great look forward to seeing you on the inside. Also I think I will yell at me for not investing in this training, I don’t know if that’s true.

I think you’ll get a lot out of it with some of the more advanced strategies. Because I’m actually going to be taking some notes on the different things. This is great because they are really covering the whole spectrum here. Someone that’s first getting into Kindle publishing you are going to be going, really into detail about that stuff. Then you also go into the more advanced stuff which it’s going to be useful for people even at a higher level.
There is really nothing else out there like I said before that you probably going to be able to come across a deal like this that I can imagine.

I think for you and for me in the sense that, if you are reading the blog you get to consider questions in real time and get answers that you are not clear on. First you get those two bonus sessions like at mid point and the end point of the blog. We do the roundup and catch up on anything at all. It’s also good for me because it means I can create a better blog. I can tailor even more to because I know what I want to teach you. I can make sure that I’m giving you exactly what it is you want to be able to make rapid progress. Make sure there is no questions that are hanging in the air which are not getting answered because you’ll be able to just come to me directly with those questions.
