Book Covers

Simple covers include either one stock image or public domain image for your book with the title and author name added.  For simple full paperback covers, the designer will create a spine (formatted to your printer’s size specifications) and back cover (with marketing copy you provide) that complements the front cover.

  • Up to two rounds of author corrections
  • A PDF of your cover formatted to your printer’s specifications (for full covers)

  • A web-quality image of your front cover to use in online marketing

Custom covers are for authors who have a cover idea in mind that require either multiple images, multiple mock-ups, or the creation of a custom image not available as a stock image.

This service include:

  • Cover mock-ups for the author to choose from (generally starting with three)
  • Up to two rounds of author corrections
  • A PDF of your cover formatted to your printer’s specifications (for full covers)
  • An image of your front cover prepared for ebook embedding according to your distributor’s standards
