Okay, I made a decision about my cover being a portrait before completely turning a 180 and decided to make it icons instead. Then I saw the cover art for Terry Ervin's book Flank Hawk and changed my mind again.
The artwork popped as a thumbnail and killed at full size. I made my final decision: I can have what I want with the portrait and still have it stand out as a thumbnail. (Yay me!)
Now, here's the question:
Regarding my desire to do POD, the artist said:
I haven't done any wrap-around layouts for standard publication.
Does your POD service have a wrap-around cover template? Will it require my design work?
Truthfully, I have absolutely no idea what a wrap around cover template is. Do I need her help on it?
I'm thinking the portrait on the front, big text of the book title on the spine, and text on the back. Any better ideas?
Thanks for the assist.
