I am looking for something simple, sexy, sultry, dark. Greyish, black dark backgrounds are fonts I'm imagining or you could also do the opposite and have a white background. This book is all about Louboutins, red lipstick, dresses and gin. It's also about scandals from the news and living a luxurious lifestyle in New York City. A strong woman falling for a man who's just as dominating. It could be a greyish tone in the background with a man engulfing a woman on a balcony railing or a woman pushing a man back down on his knees with her black high-heeled stilettos? Or something as simple as a leash or a chain.
Here are the Amazon Kindle's File Type: JPEG or TIFF.
Dimensions: The ideal size of your eBook cover art is a height/width ratio of 1.6:1. This means that for every 1,000 pixels in width, the image should be 1,600 pixels in height. To ensure the best quality for your image, particularly on high definition devices, the height of the image should be at least 2,500 pixels. Ideal dimensions for cover files are 2,560 x 1,600 pixels.
Note: The minimum image size allowed is 1,000 x 625 pixels. The maximum image size allowed is 10,000 x 10,000 pixels.
Size: Your cover image must be less than 50MB. Try to avoid compressing your files. This can affect the quality of your cover when displayed on reading devices. For the best results, images should have a minimum resolution of 300 PPI (pixels per inch).
If someone chooses to do a white background: Cover art with white or very light backgrounds can seem to disappear against the white background. Try adding a narrow (3-4 pixel) border in medium gray to define the boundaries of the cover.
151 to 300 pages 0.5" (12.7 mm) at least 0.25" (6.4 mm) at least 0.375" (9.4 mm).
Another idea I find intriguing could be a woman passed on the pictures and traits that I wrote above, with her legs crossed, high heels on and a glass of gin in her hand, nails painted red ...maybe with a sort of chain next to the leather couch.
