Professional Book Cover Design: Process and Fees
My expertise lies in providing professional, sophisticated, unique designs that will help a book stand out in a crowded marketplace.
I work with many independent authors. In addition to the design aspect of the project, I offer guidance on navigating the printing side of the publishing process, which many of my clients have found invaluable.
My process is as follows:
We’ll begin with an initial discussion about your book, your goals, and any ideas you might have about the cover.
Once I receive your manuscript, I aim to read as much as time allows. I’ll then present you with at least three unique cover directions.
Next, we'll discuss any changes you’d like and work towards a final cover.
I will also prepare fully designed layout(s) of the front, spine, and backad for whichever printer you’ve decided to work with. I’ll also prepare the eBook cover.
My fee is $1100, and I offer discounts for series books or multiple projects.
If this is within your budget and you would like to schedule a time to speak, please contact me, and I will send you a link to my calendar.
Author Landing Pages/Websites
Similarly to the book cover design process described above, we will begin the process of designing your site by discussing your needs and goals. I will take into consideration any branding aspects. I like to provide my clients with this information sheet that helps the process considerably by helping you get as organized as possible from the beginning: WEB INFO SHEET
