How to Include Spine and Back Cover Designs When Self-Publishing on Amazon (For Your Paperback Edition)

If you're planning to self-publish your book on Amazon, you may be wondering about the spine and back cover of your printed version. Here's what you need to know:

Amazon doesn't do any designing themselves. Instead, they simply print whatever you provide them. So, if you want something on the spine or back cover of your book, you'll need to provide the appropriate designs as part of the cover image that you submit to Amazon.

If you're working with a designer, they should know how to do this for you. However, if you're doing it independently, Amazon provides guidance on how to include spine and back cover designs in their support documentation (see this article for details).

To sum up, if you're self-publishing on Amazon, you're responsible for providing the designs for the spine and back cover of your book as part of the cover image you submit. Amazon doesn't provide any designing services, so it's important to work with a designer or follow their guidance to make sure your book looks the way you want it to.
