Be prepared to be blown away with the MockupShots book cover image generator. The old adage of "don't judge a book by its cover" is so wrong, IMHO.
We all judge books by their covers, right?
So how do we get mock-ups of our books, you ask? First: use your own 2D design and create the cover yourself, or have a cover created the professional way and hire graphic designers.
When you've done that super-important step, it's time to get your book on the shelves of your chosen sales platforms.
Look, you've spent weeks, months, or even years getting your book's manuscript polished. When it comes time to start selling it, don't let your covers fall flat - literally.
Having a realistic-looking mock-up of your book connects with people making them more likely to purchase your book. I noticed a drastic uptick in my book sales when I went from a flat image to a 3D image by using MockupShots book cover image generator!
A 3D representational book cover needs to be on your landing page and for a 3D perfect mock-up, use MockupShots. I've been a fan and user of their product for years.
There's really nothing like seeing your book in the hands of a person, even if the book is not in print yet! And that's the idea.
You must have a professional mock-up ready for a pre-launch, or a general launch.
Why pay a bunch of money to have a mock-up created when you can do it yourself? That's where MockupShots book cover image generator comes in.
Shown below are a few of my own books.
On the first image "66 Days to Sobriety - Color Your Quips", I added the text "On sale TODAY!" using their editing function at MockupShots. You can easily do the same text addition inside Canva.
Next, you'll see "Easy Food Dehydrating" lying on a table amid baskets filled with Easter eggs.
The third image is a meme with a Husky doggie holding the book under his front leg. That book is "Make Your Own Dog Food."
Lastly, it's the same book standing upright on a desk with other office stuff close by.
FYI: Clicking on the books above will take you to where you can buy it/them! Shameless plug.
You'll be blown away by the mock-up design area and the sheer amount of mock-ups to choose from (over 600)!
Hey, there are also memes and GIFs. Just download the image or GIF and use them for life. Get in front of your audience with a stunning book representation in these interesting and engaging ways.
Your (flat) book cover can be made to look like it's an eBook seen on a phone, tablet, or an audiobook - or a boxed set. How about a spiral-bound book, paperback, or hardcover? Yes, you're 'covered' (pun intended).
There are many different seasonal options inside the MockupShots book cover image generator for the major holidays. Your book can be presented to look like it's on a table next to a laptop, being read on a beach, or simply enjoyed by Grandma sitting on her sofa as demonstrated by the four images of the books I shared with you, above.
With MockupShots, you'll be surprised at just how many book variations/images there are to choose from!
I often get ideas - just from all the images shown - on how to promote my book in other venues and at different (seasonal) times of the year.
To make it easier for you to find a relevant mock-up after you've uploaded your book (see the video farther up the page), you can search by:
Not only that, you can search, say, for "pets" and your search for "pets" will bring up mock-ups featuring cats and dogs... and a rabbit!
The MockupShots book cover image generator really does have you covered!
Whether you say "Giffs" or "Jiffs," MockupShots has many animated GIFs to use too!
I use them on my exit modal popups. They catch the exiting-eye.
Shown below is a sampling of GIFs.
As I said earlier, I am a happy user of Adazing's MockupShots, and for good reason. Their high-quality mock-ups stand out from the competition.
