I'm a career marketing expert with a degree in graphic design and a love of teaching.
Why should that matter to you?
I've dedicated 25+ years to consumer marketing. Understanding the psychology of buying habits, how color affect buying moods, understanding the science of how an eye moves through a marketing piece, and ultimately how to sell a product. I've taken all of that experience and understanding of how to sell to a target audience and paired it with my passion for art, graphic design, and creating beautiful things.
I've designed over 500 incredible book covers for authors AND publishers looking to stand out of the crowd, including LMBPN Publishing, Aethon Books, bestselling authors like Craig Martelle, Erik Henry Vick, Michael Anderle, and U.S.A. Today Bestselling authors like Lisa Phillips. These covers are hand-crafted with extreme care, combining elements of their story and the genre itself to create something that fits so well in their potential reader's mind. How do I do this?
I spend nearly as much time researching your project as I do producing it.
My job is to get people - readers who love books similar to the one you've poured your soul into - to click on yours.
I've worked with some of the top authors and publishers in many genres. I've created over fifty bestselling covers and even more "Top New Releases".
I understand the ins and outs of how to make your cover marketable and I love teaching those insights to my clients. Most of my work with my clients is from repeat business - authors that realize how easy I am to work with and keep coming back over and over again for more covers as their books continue to sell well.
Do you want to build a cover with me that can sell your book?
Do you want a laser focus - researched through marketing science - on your genre?
Financially, expect my rates to be mid-level to average costs for high-end design. What you don't get with other designers is the marketing partnership that you'll receive with me. It's invaluable. My rates range from $650-$1550 per cover, depending on genre and the brief. Additional items listed above are ala carte' added to that cost.
I invoice 20% down to hold your booking spot, which is non-refundable. The balance is due the week we start your project. I'll keep in touch with you and the week prior, we will start talking genre and research. By the end of the [project, you'll have an incredible and marketable cover in your hands.
