When I decided to end my novel contract with my small publisher, I lost my cover art for my Born of Shadows Book Series. One of the things that I’ve heard repeatedly on writing podcast (and know as a reader) is how important awesome cover art is for a novel’s success. The challenge of course is finding an affordable book cover artist when you’re an indie author without a big budget. Initially I found a designer that allows you to choose your own cover image and then she adds the font and formatting for $150, which is a pretty good deal. Unfortunately, I realized that this cost didn’t include a paperback option, which is important to me because I love having paperback copies of my published novels. I found another artist who offers a great deal for beautiful cover art when you’re doing a book series and ultimately went with her. She’s been great to work with – intuitive, on time and mos of all creates a beautiful cover design.
- Cover Quill – Rena is the designer at Cover Quill and she created my new cover for Ula: Born of Shadows Book 1 (I love it)
- Beetiful Book Covers – This designer offers a custom e-book option for $150.
- The Book Cover Zone – I have not worked with this designer, but I saw some great pre-made covers on their site.
