BOOK COVER DESIGN

Along with great content, a striking and creative book cover design is key for any successful author. Whether you are a regular to self-publishing or brand new to the whole process, you'll be aware that any book only has a few seconds to catch a reader's attention. Outside of 'judging a book by its cover', what's really important is that your book, your brand and you as the author are the complete package.

  • Bespoke and tailored artwork for your book cover or series 
  • Professional cover design to show your author brand and identity 
  • Design and imagery, with marketing and social media in mind

These book cover packages are ideal for both fiction and non-fiction writers, depending on your individual publishing needs. If you're not sure which route to go, get in touch for a chat and a free consultation.

ARTWORK

I can work with imagery either found by the author (original photography or brought with a license from a stock photography website) or I can source the imagery required myself (prices vary depending on your specific usage, my time required for creative research and your package requirements).

In order to create the most original artwork (from stock photography or original artwork), I use image manipulation, retouching and post-production techniques to create the final desired effect. Before I take on any project, the clarification of art and imagery sources will be agreed on your quote.

Get in touch on my contact form to receive a quote or send me a message to discuss your project at enquiries[@]katiebirks.co.uk. Please give as much information as possible about your requirements.
