    • Select any of our already-made, ready to go covers.
  • Premade Level 2: $125
    • Like one of our already made covers, but wish you could make a few minor changes such as a different fonts or crop on the image? Choose the tier-two level and select a cover, the tell us what you’d like tweaked to make the cover perfect for you.
  • Custom Level 1: $250
    • With the custom cover, we’ll provide one stock art image and design specifically for you.
  • Custom Level 2: $350
    • Have something a bit more extravagant in mind? With Custom Level 2, we’ll provide up to three stock art images to fit your desired cover. Additional images are $35 each.

Book Design

E-book Conversion: $250; books will illustrations could cost additional fees—let us know if you have images and we’ll give you a quote specific to your project.

E+books are by far the best-selling format in today’s market. Our designers will give you two professional and functional e-reader formats.

Marketing & Promo Products

Marketing your product is just as important as the product itself. Your book can’t sell if people don’t know about it! We’ll provide you the necessary tools to get the word out and get your cover seen!

Tier 1 (FB banner, Twitter banner; one post card file) $250 Facebook and Twitter are two of the most popular social media sites. To make your author pages stand out, we’ll create a custom banner to promote you and your book. We’ll also design a postcard to share online!

Tier 2 (Tier 1 + bookmark file, business card file) $350 Bookmarks are cheap and fun ways to share your books. Oftentimes libraries and bookstores will allow you to leave a stack for their patrons to take for free. Business cards are also essential. What better way to promote your work than to be able to hand someone a card and direct them right to your site?

Tier 3 (Tier 2 + 11x17 poster) $400 Planning to spread the word in a bigger way? Perhaps you’d like to set up some book signings? We’ll provide you with a file to send to your favorite printer and have as many posters as you’d like created.

A la Carte: Price varies. Want just one or two of the above options? Or something not listed? Let us know what you need and we’ll give you a quote specific to your project.
