Get a 3D Ebook Cover on the Fly

Do you want an Ebook Cover – but don’t want to wait ages for someone on Fiverr to make it not knowing what the result will be?

Well that was me today.

So, I made an Ebook – easy process of making a document & saving as a PDF – But that’s a whole other blog post – I’ll get to that one day… subscribe to my blog by entering your details down below & you’ll find out when I write that blog!

Anyways where was I…… So I wanted a good looking 3D book cover image to use for my giveaway page.

Now I love using Gimp – But just by doing a quick Google search I discovered there was more to it than I really wanted to put into it. So I canned that idea.

I thought about using Fiverr – But that could take a while, & well, I’ve heard some reports about crappy jobs. So I canned that idea.

Well I looked & looked around the net & I came across a quick and easy solution.

A place where for $4 I can make online then download a quick and easy image of my Ebook cover.

You only pay once you download so I thought what the hell, I’ll give it a go.

I just uploaded an image added some text and pressed “Make my Ebook Cover Now” (Maybe it didn’t say that, but it should have)

Well I got a great image – if I have played with it for a bit extra and added some color instead of leaving it shiny white it would have come out a whole lot better but I’m happy.

After loading the image to my web page this is the result:

Now you want to know where I went to make this awesome 3D Ebook cover don’t you…

All you need to do is go to http://www.myecovermaker.com create an account and BAM you’re in!

Seriously I did this in like 5 minutes – if I spent 10 I would have made a super kick ass one – but I’m impatient….

    Thanks for sharing this resource, Alex! I’ve wanted to create an ecover, but didn’t want to buy a whole software program that I would only use once in a blue moon.

    • Alex Bender

      Thats the beauty of this tool – just $4 a pop!

  • Xarah Dax

    Alex, that’s a great resource for anybody needing a 3d ebook cover. I would like to know how you created that image for this blog post 😉

    • Alex Bender

      Depending on what image you are talking about… It its the header then I googled an image (shhh, don’t tell anyone), but if its the screenshot image in the blog then I use this awesome free tool Jing that lets you create an image of your screen – its awesome! get it for free at http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html

  • Tim King

    Great info Alex! I’ve often wondered how to easily make one of those and now I know. Now, I just have to write the book!

    • Alex Bender

      This was a challenge for me, I never thought I’d be able to write a decent one, however I’m pretty happy with it for a simple marketing tool. Its only a few pages long, I give it away in an ad, every picture is linked back to my capture page & I have a link at the end for people to click on. Its the first time I have done this – I’m always up for learning new things – this is my new craft & have much more to learn.
