I’m an indie author who also enjoys helping others, and one way I can do that is by offering my skills and passions as a hobbyist book cover designer and interior formatter.
Here you will find links to information on covers and basic interior formatting, as well as Pre-made book covers (no back or spine pictured, but I can help with that too), available for purchase.
If you have something particular in mind that you don’t see here, I also do Custom Designs!
- I actually prefer to do this using your own artwork/photographs/graphics (not found on the internet, but actually belonging to you!) wherever possible.
Most of the pertinent info is linked below, but if you have any questions please fill out the contact form, and I will get back to you ASAP. If you are ready to talk design, use the form too! 🙂
Here are the current Pre-made Designs I have available at this time. They are fully adjustable on design elements.
All the above covers were designed using images procured from pixabay.com with the CC0 license. I verified with the photograph owners of those with discernable/recognizable faces that the photographer had procured written permission for CC0 use of their photos. We will give the photographer a “coffee” donation through PayPal any time their photograph is used in a final purchased project, so keep that in mind and consider adding a tip to help cover the cost.
I am of a mind that various photo elements from some of the covers I design can be reused in other covers but never in the exact same configuration so that your book won’t look exactly like another.
Here are links with helpful information. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, feel free to email me using the contact form below!
I want you to be satisfied with what I design, so I’ll work diligently to give you exactly the cover you didn’t know you wanted (hehe, do I have the car salesman lingo down or what?! 🙂 j/k), and we can discuss refunds if necessary. You’ll have plenty of input, and you’ll receive a lot from me too. Think of it this way: we’re a team! And I’m a team player, so let’s work together!
Please fill out the contact form here to email Rachael with any inquiries or requests to purchase a Pre-made or Custom cover! Things worth including besides your name would be:
- Titles/books that are Comparative and Competitive to yours
- Character Traits of your protagonist (& antagonist if you want)
- Special objects (anything key to the story)
- Places (time, era, season, terrain, etc)
- Synopsis (a brief description telling me what your book is about)
- Your preferences for communication
Over the course of the last three years I have dived into the world of book cover design, mainly by making covers for my own books. It has been a steep learning curve, but I’m dedicated to growth and continued education when it comes to design work because it’s something I’m passionate about.
I’m not an expert or a pro, but I’m working my way that way. We can learn some of this stuff together and become more confident every step of the way. The indie publishing road is complicated but rewarding, so I hope you’ll let me be a part of your path.
I love to work with the author to capture the story and give it the best cover. Give me a shot, and let’s make some covers together!
