Who designs your book covers?

I've been lucky enough to work with some fantastic designers over the years. I've listed them below. Some have long wait times, so if you are looking for a new designer be sure to book early.

Do you recommend using pre-made covers?

If you have a tight budget, I do recommend pre-made covers (unless you have your own killer photoshop skills) but with some caveats: 

 

  • Always buy from reputable artists (get recommendations).

  • Check the designer has the correct license for the images. No license? Don't use them. 

  • Be aware of your genre and look out for blatant 'copies'. Most designers are legitimate but some are not. You don't like your work being pirated and neither do cover designers or artists.

  • If you are buying the Photoshop files, always buy the related stock art so that YOU have the correct license to use those images.
