I primarily use stock images and Photoshop to create fantastical photographic illustrations. :)

Preferred Genres: YA, fantasy, science fiction, horror... and most anything else. :)

Price Range: See my blog for the most current prices: Book Cover Pricing

Starts at $50.00 for a simple ebook cover, plus the cost of stock images. This package includes an ebook cover (will be formatted based on the services you plan to use it for). There are also packages for print and promotional materials, and more extensive covers, if you're interested in character creation.

I'm a graphic designer, and have begun doing book covers. I've only got a few on my website right now, but will be adding more soon.

Since I'm still rather new to this, I will only charge $50 for a basic design. If you want something more complex, I'll charge more, depending on the project. We'll agree on the price in advance.

You can find samples of my work in my online porfolio: cpfdesign.wordpress.com

Editing to add: I am happy to do covers for erotica, explicit or otherwise. :)

Thanks,
Paige

Hi! I've been doing freelance cover art since the spring, mostly working with a fantasy/romance publisher. But I'm willing to do covers in any genre and in any style you'd like.

Click here to see my covers http://sarah-janelehoux.com/Gallery/gallery.htm and here to see my personal artwork http://silverc.deviantart.com/gallery/

Because I'm so new, my prices are cheap: $75 for an ebook cover, $150 for a full wrap. All payments to be made through paypal.

This week (Sept 3-7) I'm having a sale! Only $30 for an ebook cover, $75 for a full wrap.

If you're interested, please send me a PM or email [email protected]

Thank you very much!

Hello all. I'm a full-time graphic designer and I've started into book design as I felt it would be best to do my own novel covers myself. My website is http://thedesigner.ws (you can click on samples and view the print section). I have a degree in graphic design, over nine years of experience, and I've received design awards as well (Bronze ADDY's and an Emmy nomination). In 2013 I won an ADDY award for the book design of Lady From Day (in my signature).

As for genre's, I'm pretty open. I don't do erotica or LGBT. Fantasy/Sci-fi is my forte. Two samples are in my signature. I can work with either stock (and I also make sure I have everything fully licensed to use) or I can do a custom illustration (which is much more time consuming).

My rates start at $200 (just the cover using stock). I work in high resolution suitable for print.
