Approval Checklist

customcover-approvalchecklistFeeling last-minute nerves about clicking “Approve” on your artwork?
Here’s a handy checklist of things you’ll want to take one more look at before finalizing the art:

eBook only

  • Typos on the cover: Title, pen name and (if applicable) tagline, quote, etc.

eBook + Print

  • Typos on the cover: Title, pen name and (if applicable) tagline, quote, etc.
  • Typos on the spine: This is one of the easiest to miss, but one of the most painful when you’re holding a copy of your book.
  • Links for social media: Make sure all the hyphens, spaces, numbers, etc. are correct for each web link.
  • ISBN and price on the barcode (if LightningSource/IngramSpark)*
  • Back text: Whenever you send the final version of the back text, definitely triple-check for typos. Also, consider reading it out loud to yourself before you press “send” on your email.*

* Please note: If the spine size and/or back text are still pending, we can update those two details later. Once approval goes through, the ebook cover will be finalized and emailed to you. When the final details are ready, I will adjust the spine size based on the page count, update the back text and send you the final print PDF in 1-2 business days.
