My design motto: Remember, she who dies with the most fonts, wins!
In addition to writing, ghostwriting and editing, I also design book covers. Here are some of my designs for eBook, audio and print. I also do CD covers. In the gallery below, I showcase designs for covers of all genres: science fiction, fantasy, mainstream, steampunk, mystery and everything in between.
I have a large library of images and fonts and am not afraid to use them. I use a combination of existing images (whether from my source or purchased or provided by you, dear client) and digital editing processes to produce a cover that reflects your story and branding.
I usually build a cover in stages or approval milestones:
1) Your approval of basic design ideas for the book or series.
2) Your approval of the final covers.
I ask $150 for eBook covers or audio book covers, $200 for paperback covers, and $250 for hardback covers. I discount if you need more than one type of cover. For example, I would do both eBook and paperback covers for $250 and all of the above for $300. The eBook price covers a variety of sizes and resolutions for your use in ads, catalogues, websites and other promotions.
Some of the designs below required only image placement, font selection and text layout. Others required layering of diverse graphic elements to create a complete image. I’ve included multiple books from the same series so you can see how I handle “branding”. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By the way, if the titles look interesting, most of them are available from Book View Cafe’s eBookstore.
