Authos, Submit your Cover Art for your Book!
We are still collecting book covers for the rotating banner on the home page. If you have a book cover, the best way to get it to us is by visiting this form where you can upload your book cover file directly. We are happy to format it to the correct height and width (164hx108w), so upload the best quality file that you have. When in doubt, submit, as we keep track of when you have been featured and what title was last featured (so don't hesitate to send in book covers for any new books you have coming out). It goes without saying that your membership needs to be current for you to be featured in the rotation.
