Cover Design & Graphics

The first step in marketing your book is making sure you are marketing a quality one. Second, it’s all about dressing up the package. Your book cover, teasers, and graphics are all a representation of your brand.

So you’re a Photoshop, Illustrator, or heck – Paint, ninja. That’s great, could you teach us paint? It takes more than design knowledge to produce a cover that’s going to entice a buyer to pick your book over another. It takes a genuine understanding of readers and what appeals to them. It takes knowledge of publication programs and printers and adhering to book cover guidelines. Most importantly, it takes an outsider to look at your cover ideas objectively and to tell you if those ideas will click with people who haven’t read your story yet.

It takes courage to tell an author no, but when we do it, if we have to, there is a solid reason behind it followed by a Plan B of what we believe is a better solution. Maybe you’re not such a Photoshop, Illustrator, or Paint ninja, but you do know that visuals sell better. Our graphic designers work closely with our marketing team to help produce any and all the graphics you may ever need, or want. Check out our design services, and know that we can bundle and package exactly what you’re looking for. Contact us for price quotes and to get started.
