Want the best book cover possible? Here’s how to make it happen.
Getting a book cover that makes you happy starts with finding a cover artist you like. Unfortunately, doing that is easier said than done. Having someone by your side who understands the process and will act as your advocate ensures you wind up with an artist who understands your vision so your cover hits the mark.
When I work with authors, I find multiple cover artists and present each artist’s portfolio to the author. Once an artist is chosen, the author and I begin working with the chosen artist. Depending on your requests, the timeframe to have your cover completed can be between a couple days to a couple weeks. Need changes made to the initial cover option? A good cover artist will make changes at no additional expense. And don’t worry—all the cover artists I present to authors work this way. After all, if you’re not satisfied, you’re not going to want to use that artist again. If you’re frustrated with your cover artist, you’re going to be frustrated with me. So I do whatever I can in my power to ensure your experience with the cover artist of your choice goes as smoothly as possible.
If you’ve shopped around for book publishing services, you may realize that my process for dealing with covers is different from bigger companies. Many of them provide one-size-fits-all services. In their system, you get an option of two, three, or maybe a handful of covers from which to choose. Sometimes, the cover options are just what you want. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Sometimes, the cover isn’t personalized and therefore doesn’t meet the vision for your book or make you proud of the final product. Work with me and you’ll have complete control over every aspect of your cover design—from any images used to fonts, font sizes, and font placement.
Don’t know that you can make this many decisions about your cover? No problem. Tell me what you want out of your cover and I’ll work on your behalf to get it there. Because writing your book was hard enough. Figuring out the rest shouldn’t ruin the experience.
