What do I get for $199?
I will design your ebook cover. You will get an image that you can upload directly to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. This includes all sizes of the cover that you may need. It does not include formatting help with the rest of your ebook.
Do you do print covers or just ebook covers?
I do print covers as well. Once the ebook cover is finished, you can hire me to do the print version (adding a spine and back cover) for an additional $100.
How involved do I need to be?
It's up to you. If you have a specific vision or image you want to use, I can help you execute it. Or I can just read your book description and start there.
How long will it take?
I work quickly. Usually from start to finish they take 2-3 weeks. When timing was urgent, I have completed a cover in less than a week.
Who owns the rights?
You will own the rights. I will likely add it to my portfolio on this site, but you will own your cover and not owe any future royalties or anything like that.
What about images used in the cover?
I can not and will not use just any image found on the internet. There are free stock image sites that have royalty-free photos. There are also cheap images sites like istockphoto.com or shutterstock.com where you can purchase an image (not included in my fee). I can also use any photo that you take.
I want to know technical specifics about sizes and resolution.
I build most covers at 1600 x 2400 at 300 dpi. If you have a specific size you like, that's fine too.
How do I pay you?
I accept credit cards via PayPal. You don't need to have a PayPal account. Click here to hire me.
