Amazon sometimes seems to operate on a planet all its own. One example is that Amazon doesn’t want people to start with the cover when reading a Kindle book. Hrmpf. I like our covers. I like other people’s covers. They’re one of the things that separates a book from a pile of pages.

Impossible to design kindle books with the cover in front without ending up with a double cover issue? Nope. I figured out how to beat Amazon. The first thing you see in the last two books I designed —City Limit and, for pressWoodInk, Ants and the CoffeePot— is the cover. Not a double cover (like in Steve Jobs) but one cover. And, since the book I solved this for was a pressWoodInk title, I tell all in a blog entry over there.
