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 type of the book (fantasy, mystery, children, romance...), theme of the cover (what would you like me to create on the cover, or short description, or chapter from your book, reference images...). Reference images of similar covers are also welcome.
I might have a few fallow up questions or ask for certain details which will help me to get 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 to the right direction.
To be sure that I have all necessary information, you can fill in Cover Question Form and send it to my email.
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). Price of the custom cover is 300 USD (250 USD for authors who already purchased my premade cover, for authors who purchased premade cover and need another book in series, also authors who already have my custom cover and need another one).
Price will be reduced if you providing stock images or links to stock images you want me to use for your cover (acceptable stock sites are: Dreamstime, Depositphotos, Shutterstock).
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 you 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 to 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 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 an 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.
