Q: What experience do you have?
A: As well as being a writer and illustrator, I have over eighteen teen years experience working as a Graphic Designer; ten of which was working for a renowned international advertising company. I also have qualifications in Graphic Design, Art, and Animation. Up to now I've created several hundred covers for satisfied authors around the world.
Q: What if I don’t like my final book cover design?
A: If all avenues have been taken, and you’re still not satisfied, we will refund your deposit. The ball is entirely in your court.
Typesetting deposits cannot be refunded once started.
Q: I’ve seen other designers charging much higher prices. Why are you much cheaper?
A: In recent times the boom of self-publishing and indie book publishers have allowed writers the chance to get their work into the market without going down the traditional route of submitting to mainstream publishers. The average author does not have thousands to spend on expensive design services that the traditional companies use, which in my opinion are simply overkill anyway. I have access to a huge image library, and numerous artists, but I do not have a photography studio, a research and development team etc. thus helping keep costs down.
Q: What if I need to resize my book cover in the future?
A: Although unusual, this does sometimes happen, say if authors decide to release again in a hardback version. The covers are produced in massive high resolution files (at least 300dpi) and are fully editable so resizing is not an issue. I will provide free* after sales service to do this for you.
Q: I'm a new author, and not sure how to get my book uploaded to print. Will you help with this?
A: Absolutely! I've seen other designers charge for this, but I believe the after service is just as important. Whether it's finding where to get ISBNs to getting the cover submitted to publishing platforms, I'll be here to help you along the way.
Q: Can I provide my own artwork for my book cover design?
A: As long as it’s of a high enough resolution, of course! This will also be taken into consideration when we talk costs.
