Your book cover questions answered.

Providing custom book cover artistry and a whole lot more.

How do you go about designing so many gorgeous covers?

Lots of experience! Most authors (and my regular publishers) provide me with the blurb and let me run with my ideas as my design and marketing experience exceed anything they might suggest. The Book Cover Whisperer offers complex cover design. D-I-Y single-image covers or hiring services that pay a corral of designers bare bones or use cover contests will generate amateur covers that can be spotted a mile away. Your readers won’t be fooled.

After carefully considering genre, time period, your synopsis, and any style request, extensive research begins. It takes the expert blending of resources, artistry, fonts, and colors to create an overall “feeling.” The goal is a stunning cover your readers would stop to check out on any Barnes & Noble display table. All that said, your collaboration and images are most welcome. 

I know you're the Book Cover Whisperer but is my new book cover happy dance guaranteed?

Yes! you receive unlimited changes until you’re 100% satisfied or we’ll refund your money. Terms and Conditions.

Once we review the overall design concept whispered just for you based on your book brief, you provide me with feedback. Sometimes images need to be changed. i.e. A client requested snow in the foreground to lend a colder feel to the overall tone of the cover. This meant Russia’s Red Square had to go from a summer to winter requiring a different photo. We may change fonts or color tonality. I want you so excited about your new cover, you’re doing the happy dance and 100% satisfied. After the design concept is approved, you receive unlimited layout, text, and page count changes as the book goes into final production.

Do I need to credit your cover design inside my book?

Yes, it would be appreciated! Like this: Book Cover Design by The Book Cover Whisperer: ProfessionalBookCoverDesign.com

May I provide my own art and photography for you to use?

Yes, as long as you own the images! Please allow me to advise you on any any photos submitted for your cover design at no additional cost. As authors and publishers are not professional designers, many times quality is an issue which will lead to less than optimal results. I research the highest quality and most appropriate images for your project and purchase the license. Image perspective and cropping is important. Images must harmonize with other art and elements. Providing your own images tends to work best with nonfiction or memoirs, however, I’ve fairly pulled off a few miracles in my design career. Images must be large files at 300dpi for print.

How does your two-payment plan work?

Prolific low-quality covers, marketing materials, and websites are a stumbling block impeding independent author and small publisher success in today’s competitive marketplace. The two-payment option is not an extension of credit. It’s designed to make you feel more comfortable about plunking down your hard-earned money on a cover design you’ve not yet seen. A minimum of half down allows your project to be placed on the work calendar. BCW Terms and Conditions state once you are have approved the design concept presented to you, the remaining balance is due. Final payment may not be put off due to author delays such as editing or waiting on review blurbs to be collected. We are very happy to “wait here” while you collect the finished elements of your book after design approval is given until you are ready to receive finalized files. Of course, we offer an incentive savings of $25 to make full payment at time of purchase.

What additional expenses do I need to know about?

Please request a quote for pricing or quantity discounts
Interior book / ebook formatting
Intensive Print-on-demand guidance
Additional stock photos
Custom vector file design/conversion

Is it really that easy? What else do I need to do?
First, peruse the book covers above and elsewhere to decide your preferred style.

Please click Get Started and fill out the confidential, no-obligation Book Cover Brief.

I’ll be in touch to say hello and introduce myself.

Provide as many specifics as you can, like book cover dimensions, printing requirements and the information that needs to go on the front and back covers of your book. For the front cover this usually includes: title, author’s name, subtitle, tagline, imagery and a quote. For the back cover you may need an ISBN number, blurb, author’s biography and a quote.

Send any artwork to whisperer(at)professionalbookcoverdesign.com.

I form long-term relationships with most of my clients as they come back for additional services and to share exciting book news!
