Front & Back Cover Pages

I would like to use my own layout page for the front & back covers of my book but can’t find a layout that allows this.  Is it possible that Blurb can add cover layouts that are blank so covers a person create can be added?  I know these cover pages are a little larger than regular pages but it would be nice to have this choice.

I create my own back and front covers using Blurbs cover dimentions and then upload the images to BookSmart and choose the full bleed blank covers – the text boxes won’t show up if you leave them blank – check the Preview to make sure it looks right.

yup, I did my cover layout in photoshop with my own font selection…..did it the same way as mentioned above with the container size setting the photo size.

Platteford & Firstgear,

Thank you both for your responses.  For some reason I forgot to check the review mode and that the text would disappear if none was used.  I used this before with a couple of my other book titles but it has been a while since my last book – I panicked.  Thanks for the reminder.

BTW, both of your book covers (Amazing Wolf Art & Red Hot) are just fantastic.
