One digital e-book cover, plus 6-ish interior illustrations

List the size requirement(s) for your print design

COVER: Standard for Kindle/Amazon, 72 dpi, file size small enough to load quickly, appx 1562 X 2500 pixels, ratio of 1:6, plus I also need a thumbnail of the cover to see how it will be seen on Amazon, plus a smaller version of the cover image to include with the actual book file. I will need your guidance on the best size for interior illustrations.

Hi all,

We just wanted to let you know that the buyer in this project has requested a refund. And, because we offer buyers a money back guarantee, sometimes we have to make good on that promise.

To reward the loyal creatives who worked hard on this project and all the others on the site, we've taken the proceeds from this project and used them to fund our monthly cS Awards program. The cS Awards are issued every month based on varying criteria but are a simple way that we give back to the community and reward our creatives.

Thanks so much for participating and see you around the site,

The cS crew
