Book Design by Rachael

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 cover design and interior formatting.

If you have something particular in mind that you don’t see here, I also offer custom design services.

It’s great when we can use your own artwork/photographs/graphics (not found on the internet, but actually belonging to you!) wherever possible too.

Most of the pertinent info is linked here, but if you have any questions please fill out the form below, and I will get back to you ASAP. If you are ready to talk design, use the form too!

My premade covers were designed using images procured from or with the CC0 license.

Various photo elements in their most basic form can be reused in other covers but never in the exact same configuration so that your book won’t look like another. This will be a rare occurrence, though! I do not make erotic covers, overly revealing, or anything gratuitous along with other things I am not comfortable with designing. But you are free to ask if you have questions about certain genres.

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, 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 form below to email me with any inquiries or requests to purchase a cover or interior formatting package.

Things worth including besides your name would be:

  • Your Title & Genre
  • Titles/books that are Comparative and Competitive to yours
  • Character Traits of your protagonist (& antagonist if you want)
  • 1-3 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

Rachael Ritchey
Over the course of the last four 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. And for my indie friend, the publishing road is complicated but rewarding, so I hope you’ll let me be a part of your path.
I love to work with you to capture the story and give it the best cover. Give me a shot, and let’s make some covers together!
