Cover Design

Indie Author Services

I’m making very good inroads catching up with my emails, but still not all clear there. I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your loving and kind wishes, and I will get to each and every one of you. I’m not quite at warp zoom speed yet, but I’ll get there. I have to get stuck into earning an income from what I do straight away (to avoid the whole camping out under a tree thing), so I’ve had my head down for a while sorting out my website. I’m launching my services now at really low prices to begin with to get a feel for costing, and I’ll adjust them upwards a little later, so grabbing them now even if you only want them for later would be a fabulous idea. I’ve taken down my pre-made book covers page here, and replaced it with three new pages for Illustration, Indie Author Services, and Cover Design & Photography. I’m also going to put the link to my website in a widget in the sidebar here, but just click on the orange link in this paragraph for now if you’d like to have a look at it. While I’m totally confident that I’m good at what I do, I’ve never really charged for doing it before so this first step is quite terrifying, and any support with getting the word around will be very, very much appreciated.

Click on the links to get ideas of pricing, and if samples are needed that will be easily doable. Use the Contact Me form here or on the website if anything piques your interest. Here are a couple of my illustrations for those who don’t like a lot of clicking.

PS – Pre-made Book Covers

Posted on

I’ve started loading book covers for sale on my new Pre-made Book Covers tab at the top there. I must admit that it’s quite nerve wracking, but never mind, I love making them so it’s very unlikely that I’ll stop now.

All of them are made with my own photos or sketches so far. I might use stock or public domain pictures in the future, but only ever for very small elements or manipulated to totally individual works. I’ve resized them for web use, so I’m wondering about the visual quality as they are, so I’ll tack on a very high resolution image here just in case anyone thinks the web size is a bad idea. Hopefully easy to see. I’m working on a haunted house cover at the moment – love it – but only in between the scribbling and editing. I’d really love it if anyone has any ideas for covers to make. I don’t want them to be too generic, and I don’t have tons of ideas myself.
