Service Description

What makes a good book cover?
A good book cover captures the essence of the story in a single image, giving the reader a taste and feel for what they are about to read without giving away too much. Finding a way to capture the period that the story takes place as well as some elements that make up the plot of the story. For most books, the cover is the establishing image that the reader uses to imagine in their mind, as they read, the characters, settings and overall sense of the story.

Not only the image, but also the font of the title of the book can set the mood of the story. For historical fiction, for example, keeping with historic fonts that seem to represent the era. Obviously not using a Star Wars font on a book about a 15th century duke.

Not only does the cover establish the visual imagery of the story, it is also the first page that can many times be the first impression a potential reader gets of the book; whether or not they stop to take it off the shelf (or choose it off a virtual bookshelf). A window of only a few seconds to capture that attention.

Let me create that imagine that captures the attention of your story that will capture their imagination.
