Bookcover

Hi

 

I am designing my book cover using Photoshop. My book cover's size will 5.5 x 8.5. I will have 143 pages. Would someone tell me what my book cover's spine size should be? I am not sure how to figure the spine size.

I'm sure someone will come along & tell you soon but I don't bother with all of that techy stuff

 

I go to Canva & make a Kindle-sized front cover (I use this for my eBook & paperback)

Then I use the CS cover creator & choose the design that lets me just add the front cover, the spine is then sorted for me as I enter the text etc in each step of the process.

 

You may want to learn how to do a wrap around but I like quick & easy, I'm old & my time can be better spent on things I have to do or like to do lol
