Happy Weekend, WG2E-Land!
New Ebook Cover Requirements are Coming Soon to Smashwords and Apple as well as Amazon too!
An email I received this past week from Smashwords gave some of the details:
1. The changes go into effect on or around July 15th.
2. The requirement will be for larger covers for new Premium Catalog titles, and the Smashwords Styleguide and FAQs show the new standards. (minimum width 1400 pixels with height greater than width)
3. The change has been made due to Apple’s new requirements which go into effect in August. Also, the new standard meets Amazon’s latest cover recommendations.
4. For those titles already accepted in the Premium Catalog, no change is required unless a new cover is uploaded for that Ebook.
You can read more about this on the Smashwords Blog:
