So what is the difference between a wrap around, a front/spine/back cover and a kindle cover? Well, for one a wrap around doesn’t necessarily have a spine like Immortal Chronicles wrap around cover. While a front/spine/back cover style will have the title and publisher on the spine.
A kindle cover, simply the front cover from either a wrap around or a front/spine/back cover in JPG format for Kindle/KDP use. Kindle prefers this format as it sits better on most devices in their proprietary software and file formats.
Let’s break down a front/spine/back cover:
You’ll find the following:
Note: Some back covers do add the author photo and author biography to the back of the cover. At Three Little Sisters they add it to a specific author’s page in the book rather than on the back of the cover to keep the covers clean and uncluttered.
Now, let’s compare to a wrap around:
As you can see, the difference is that the spine has no publisher or title information on the spine. This is sometimes done for multi-book series like Immortal Chronicles with more than two books (usually three or more, this series is five books).
