Build Your Own Premade Cover


Want the customization of a custom cover, but all the simplicity and a price tag closer to a premade cover? That's what the build your own premade is for!

You'll fill out a story questionnaire telling me about your character, setting, subgenre and plot details as well as information about the kind of covers you like (e.g. character-focused, setting-focused, object/symbol-focused), and I'll use that information to choose a design concept that fits your subgenre and create a beautiful, market-driven cover for you just like I do for all my premades.

Each build your own premade cover includes:

  • custom 3d rendering and digital painting for 1 character (extra characters available for +50 USD/character)
  • professional, genre-appropriate font and title treatments
  • a free 3d book mock-up image, so you can start promoting immediately

Just like my premade covers, only minor and less time-consuming changes can be requested for build your own premades (e.g. font type/color), but that usually doesn’t matter since the cover was designed based on your questionnaire so the hair color, eye color, setting… all of those will already match what you need. While I know it can be scary purchasing a cover sight unseen, I promise that all build your own premade covers will be up to the standard quality of my usual premade covers, so if you love my premades but they just don’t work for your story, this might be what you need.

OK, I want a build your own premade. What do I do?

You can pay the build your own premade cover deposit and reserve your slot on my calendar here.

Sorry, this cover's already found a home.
