The artist who created your cover will create a custom back cover/spine that extends the book cover through the spine onto the back cover for a truly professional design like you would see if one of the Big 5 publishing houses published it for you.
You already have your front cover. To create a paperback book, you’ll require a back cover and spine. To get your back cover/spine, you have two options: free or custom:
You can personally create your own GENERIC back cover/spine for free with KDP using your high res 300 dpi cover file.
If you want us to create a custom back cover/spine to go with your front cover, please go back to your Dashboard and under your cover is a link to get a back cover/spine.

• KDP Hard cover/back cover/spine design.
If we created the soft cover version for $149, there would be a $75 fee to convert the soft cover version to a KDP hard cover version.
If a soft cover version was not done, the fee would be $225.
In all cases, we do all the work for you and all you will need to do is upload the professionally designed file!
