When I first started self-publishing, I believed that creating my own Kindle book cover designs was the way to go. A lot of you self-publishers out there will know where I am coming from here, I thought, ‘Ah, it’ll be alright, I’ll just find a good photo, with a bit of blank space on it to put my words, and that will do.’ Of course, I won’t do and didn’t do at all.
When initially thinking about kindle book cover designs, I trawled the internet and found prices ranging from $40 to upwards of $150, which was, even at the low end of the scale, way out of my budget. Bear in mind, these are $0.99 non-fiction e-books and, as much as I am proud of them, I have (very) limited funds to be handing out for book covers, at least at this stage.
That all said, I am also painfully aware of the importance of a good cover – catch-22 – eh?
Well. I was trying to get some gigs on Fiverr – long story – for another time 😉
Emily is fantastic. She has created the covers for my Ideas for Wedding Flowers – Colour Series books and I am delighted with them 🙂 And, guess what? They have cost me $5 each.
I know, I know… Some of you are scoffing right now… How can you hope for a decent cover for $5.
Of course, it can all depend upon what you need the cover for and the job you want it to do for you. But, like I said, I am really happy.
- Emily has done exactly what I asked her for
- She has used my photos (and jigged them around a bit if they weren’t quite right)
- They look at least a hundred times better than the kindle book cover designs I made myself
- They cost me $5 each
- I had them within 3 days
Anyway… here is her link… I can recommend her 100%
And, if you were not convinced, this is what she produced for me…
And this is what I did myself… being no Kindle book cover design competent person lol… I know which I prefer, and it was well worth $5 !
