"Working with Ken Dawson at Creative Covers has been nothing short of fantastic. As a first time indie author, the process of bringing my book to life was daunting, and at times very stressful. Ken was brilliant from the beginning, providing support and encouragement along the entire process. Nothing was too much trouble, and I really felt he was on my side. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Ken; his artistic and technical skill are first rate and he’s so easy to work it.

Five stars and 11 out of ten!"

"As two recent clients of "Creative Covers," we would like to give a huge shout out to Ken Dawson for an outstanding design job on our book cover. After coming across his website from a Google search for, book covers design, we read Ken's, "about page" and immediately knew that Ken was the person we wanted for our coming out novel. Unleash The Leviathan - Hostiles Crossed The Redline will be released soon. We will owe much of its success to Ken's cover design.

We gave a brief idea of what we wanted and within 7 days, Ken gave us 4 samples to look at. We were so very surprised that Ken was able to capture exactly what we were looking for in his initial designs. Apart from one addition to the cover we chose, Ken delivered from start to finish with two weeks.

Ken, we give you 5 stars out of 5."

Welcome intrepid writer!

You've done it!

You’ve finally finished writing that book. Endless days and sleepless nights, filled with blood, sweat and tears have finally paid off, and now you have a fully completed manuscript ready to be unleashed upon the world.

But first you need a book cover in order to attract the masses. A quick scan through the internet and a host of book cover design agencies can be found, vying for your custom.


The only problem is many of these agencies are either massively overpriced, or amazingly vague and confusing about what they offer, which can put off even the most hardened author.

At Creative Covers, I offer a fantastic book cover design service at budgets to suit all. And being a fellow writer, I understand the journey you’re on!

"Whenever we acquire a new book, there is only one place we come to for design consultancy. Ken Dawson is talented, professional, accommodating and efficient. We don’t hesitate to recommend to all small presses and authors serious about publishing."

Sammy Smith - Grimbold Books

"Whether it’s incorporating existing artwork into the perfect design, or creating something stunning from the ground up, Ken Dawson is always our first port of call for book cover design. He understands what makes a cover stand out from the rest, is professional, friendly and highly accommodating, and we can’t recommend him strongly enough."
