Overview

I DESIGN COVERS THAT GET YOUR BOOK NOTICED!

My goal as a book cover designer is to craft a dynamic visual that will draw readers to your work.

Here is what a reviewer said about one of my cover designs:

"I was given this book (Gemini Rain) by the author for an honest and open review with pressure of giving anything, but, my honest opinion. I was drawn to this book by the cover. I know it sounds shallow of me, but I do love a nice cover..."

Service Description

Every project begins with a friendly conversation. I start the design process by asking questions about your book. After our session, I will provide you with several cover designs and will work with you to achieve a cover that is right for your audience.

Crafting dynamic covers is not only about design, but knowledge of color space and print production as well. I am well versed in file formatting and will make sure your cover is properly prepared across various platforms.

With a background in commercial photography, I used imagery and light to engage viewers emotionally. As a book cover designer, the techniques are slightly different, but the goal is the same--to engage the viewer emotionally so they will pick up or click on you book.

I have designed over 300 covers and was a winner in an international book cover design contest. I would love the opportunity to work with you. Whether you have a concept in mind or you have no idea what direction to take, I will walk you through the process, answer your questions, and work with you to achieve a look that will get your book noticed.
