I usually work on 2-3 (or more) cover ideas in 3-4 business days.

If youโ€™re happy with the covers and you decide to move forward with one of them:


1. We finalise the winning design.

2. I get the Ebook cover files + 3D covers + social media banner ready for you.

3. We work on the paperback cover (front + spine + back).

Vanessa has been very professional throughout the process. She took a pragmatic approach and proactively suggested different ideas if she thought there was a better way. We had a tight timeline but the work was done at great quality and on time. On my next book I hope to work with her again.
