What you don’t get: arguments, delays, or hidden charges

Here is what you do:

Tell me about your book by telephone or e-mail. I would like a PDF of your manuscript so I can read, know and feel your book. If that is not possible, a book summary can suffice. Also, it helps me to know the following information:

          1. Are there any books to which yours might be perceived as similar in some way?
          2. What is the age range and gender of the people you wish to reach with your book?
          3. Are there covers of mine that especially appeal to you?

You will receive a written quote before work begins. Please let me know if you are in a rush but normally you should allow two-three weeks to receive the first proof of the front cover. The first design is often accepted but you are welcome to ask for as many revisions as you like or start a new concept, up to three. My clients enjoy the process. Please be assured that I am here for you and make every effort to give you a cover you’ll absolutely love (see testimonials). If you are unsure, don’t worry. I’ll help you avoid mistakes and get the best cover possible.

After you approve the front cover, the back cover and spine follow within a few days. With your approval of the back cover and spine, the cover will be ready to publish.

The fee


A deposit of $1875 (half the design fee) is required. Check, PayPal, bank transfer, and major credit cards accepted.
Satisfaction Guarantee: After work has begun, you may stop and request a refund of half the deposit.
