Using BigStock.com for My Book Cover Art

Third Dragon Book CoverI am currently reading “How to Make, Market and Sell Ebooks All for Free” by Jason Matthews and this is helping me tremendously!  I have already learned a few things, including how to get quality book cover art relatively cheap.

You may have seen my post about hiring a graphic artist for my book cover, but Jason Matthews says I can use a photo from sites like BigStock.com.  I am already a user of BigStock.com for photos on my blogs, but I guess I didn’t read their terms of service thoroughly.  After re-reading the terms of service I confirmed that it clearly says I can use BigStock.com photos for my book cover art.

I was a bit skeptical about finding a photo of a dragon on BigStock.com.  But they don’t just have photos, they have artwork.  The above photo is my proposed book cover art for The Third Dragon.  What do you think?  Nice, huh?  And it only cost me a couple of dollars!

The Third Dragon is closer than ever to publication.  I am currently building a website and converting the files to pdf and other formats.  Keep posted to see when it is ready!
