Custom Book Covers
THE COVER DESIGN PROCESS
Be a part of creative process from the beginning and participate in all decisions.
1. CONTACT ME
To create a concept of your cover I will need some information about the type of the book (fantasy, mystery, children, romance...), the theme of the cover (what would you like me to create on the cover, or a short description, or chapter from your book, reference images...). Reference images of similar covers are also welcome.
I might have a few follow-up questions or ask for certain details which will help me to get a better understanding of what you need.
After concept design is done, will send you to check it out and take your feedback until we get the concept in the right direction.
To be sure that I have all the necessary information, you can fill in Cover Question Form and send it to my email (not necessary).
Please read the Terms of Service for more info.
Invoices and payments will be done via PayPal. After we agree on a concept, I will send you an invoice for the deposit (100 USD).
- The price of the custom cover is 300 USD* including an ebook cover, paperback cover, and mockups.
- The price of every next cover in the same series is 275 USD.
- If you already purchased my premade cover and need another book in the series, the price is 275 USD.
- The price of the ebook cover only, with matching mockups, is 275 USD.
* The price might increase in case of multiple characters or special custom DAZ character order (a different pose of existing character won't affect the price) etc.
The second part of the payment is done before delivering the final files.
3. CREATION PROCESS
I might email you with additional questions or ask for certain details if necessary, but there is nothing for you to do during this process so you can relax and wait for your cover.
Work process and before/after examples:
4. YOUR BOOK COVER!
Your cover image is finished and we can start working on the text and resizing. Major changes (eg. adding new character) at this stage are possible but will come with extra costs regarding the original budget. Here is the part where you kick in and send me your title, pen name, blurb text, tag lines, etc.
If there is a font you particularly like, just let me know and I will get it. For final spine adjustments and resizing I will need your page count.
Its time for the second part of the payment. It can be done before or after final resizing depending on when you want your files (resizing will be done anyway).
I'll email the files directly or upload them via WeTransfer depending on file size.
You will also receive a free 3D image of your book (Mockup) as a BONUS (for e-book and paperback).
I would kindly ask you to credit me as a cover artist:

5. EVER AFTER
Even if your cover is done, and months and months are past, you can always contact me if you need minor changes on your cover (resizing, text change, etc.), I will be glad to help, without any additional costs.
