An effective and compelling book cover woos, courts, and compels a reader to consider your message. It says “Pick me up,” “Read me,” “Ponder me,” “Buy me.”
One study surveyed 300 booksellers (half independent bookstores and half from chains) and found that reports that seventy-five percent identified the look and design of the book cover as the most important component. They agreed that the jacket is prime real estate for promoting a book**.
That’s a staggering fact. Only an experienced designer can create a cover that understands these marketing issues.
There are many options available to help me a stunning and yet affordable book cover, no matter what your budget is. One option is to choose one of the hundreds of thousands of stock photography images available
Some people are set on custom illustration and i can help with that as well.
I will help you look for just the right image to match your project or, if you already have a picture in mind, I will work with that at an even more reduced cost.
