A Million Steps

Turning a life-changing personal journey into a business opportunity and beyond. Kurt Koontz wanted to capture the life-changing experience of his adventure on the Camino through images and words, and share his thoughts about the journey.

SOLUTION

3DC created an impactful cover design which speaks to the transformative effect that Kurt experienced on his journey. The interior layout includes maps and photos to help paint a more vivid picture in the reader's mind. To reach the largest audience possible, we created an ebook version for distribution on iTunes, Amazon and Nook and other ereaders and distributed print copies through CreateSpace. Additional print material to support the book tour included event posters, tickets and PR releases.

THE TAKEAWAY

A book cover is not merely decoration, it is an important business decision. A well-designed cover and jacket is the first assurance the reader has that the book is high quality and worth purchasing. The cover has the power to either scare away a customer or lure them in. Bad covers, with pixelated images, watermarks, badly formatted or aligned text, and so forth, suggest to the reader that the interior of the book will be equally sloppy. 3 Dog Creative's award winning designers will ensure your book is professional, and has high visibility amongst readers.
