OK. Harry T. said that too. I'm satisfied with the rest of the book. Everything's fine except for this cover.

I've got some stuff to read and Sigil to check out and trying changing my Output profile to Tablet prior to conversion. One graphic designer said this on her website about proportions in cover design:

Cover Design and Optimum Size Specifications for Amazon, Kindle, B&N, Nook, iBookstore, and iPad Formats

Please note the following updates to this post on 5/19/2012:
* Barnes & Noble Embedded Cover: 600px x 730px
* iBooks Embedded Cover: 600px x 860px
* Amazon Embedded Cover: 600px x 800px
If you only get one size for ebook formatting, go with these specifications:
1. 600px x 800px
2. Jpeg
I'll be back.
