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.

 

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 self-publishing 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. I’m happy to execute your vision for the cover and offer a few ideas of my own.
     

  • 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 and Audio covers.

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.
