Add-On Services

#cover design

Whether your book is fiction or nonfiction, technical, or business-related, our cover designs are sure to please not only the most particular independent authors, but also the discerning consumer and reader.

Here are just a few samples of cover designs we've created.



We all do it. Judge books by the cover, that is. Perception is everything, and savvy, discerning readers can sniff out a DIY cover design a mile away. The result? Lower sales due to a poor presentation.

Our design aesthetic is clean and simple, relying on classic, timeless typography coupled with professional photography and illustration. Sure, you could do it yourself, but why would you? I mean, you don't do your own dentistry or manufacture your own computers. We make it easy to leave the cover design to the pros so you can focus on promoting your work for maximum succss.
