All come with....

A mockup image of the cover.

          A rough draft, so we are both on the same page. The mockup is low-res, and not suited for print or ebook.

Final Image Comes with One Final Edit

          Once the final image is complete; one round of edits may be made.

          Any future adjustments will be billed at an hourly rate. (an estimate will be submitted before any additional work.)

File Formats

          A jpg and print quality pdf are included. Other formats available.

Don’t worry, we’re going to talk a lot about your cover.


Standard vs Premium is determined by amount of image manipulation and the complexity of the image.

All are photo-composite and digitally manipulated images.


Additional costs:

The only additional cost would come from specific images I have to purchase. All purchased images are approved ahead of time. The original file is included with the cover if applicable. this also applies to illustrated covers, the work is contracted out to an illustrator by me, and the cost is included in the invoice. 


Please Note:

I reserve the right to decline any cover, it has nothing to do with your book, and everything to do with my limited schedule.


I look forward to working with you.
