Book Cover Design

Professional Cover Design Really Does Make a Difference

If I read one more ad for book cover design that talks about people judging a book by its cover, I’ll lose it. But there’s a reason people say that: because people do judge books by their covers. So, worn-out clichés aside, there are real reasons to invest in professional cover design. Here’s an article I wrote that details some of the more important aspects that a cover designer needs to be aware of. I factor each of these into every cover design I create.

UPDATE: The cover I designed for Artistic License by Nageeba Davis won in the Romance category in the BookGoodies 2014 cover design contest. It also placed third in the overall popular vote! You can see the cover here.

I bring over three decades of graphics experience to my cover designs, and I’d love to put that experience to work for you.
