Asked to come up with a book cover design for a romance book, many of us will stumble on some similar concepts: the color red, hearts, an illustration of a happy-looking couple or two isolated figures. Maybe a background in some shade of pink.
There’s nothing wrong with these design ideas, but if they’re put together in an amateur way, there’s a serious risk of the book at hand looking unprofessional, unoriginal, or careless. The same is sadly true of premade covers. Instead, a professional romance book cover designer can approach this project armed with specific genre experience and knowledge about cover tropes and expectations for each romance category, be it horror, adult, fantasy, or a trusty rom com.
For both print and ebook formats, a professional book cover designer can synthesize elements from the content of your romance novel into an attractive layout that will make readers swoon. They’ll pay attention to details like typography and produce any illustrations or graphics in a style that is consistent with your book’s mood and content, as well as previous titles if you’re publishing a series.
