Great covers sell your book

“I wrote a great book but nobody read it! I Can’t even give it away for free. How will I ever become a full time author if nobody reads my book?”

Sound familiar?

Hi, I’m Fiona. I can help. In the last ten years as a book cover designer, I learned exactly how to make your book stand out from the crowd.

Imagine walking up in the morning excited about your commute – to you home office where your dog is waiting under the desk, ready to “work”; or to the coffee shop, to the beach… To the airplane for the next leg of your book tour.

I’m here to make your book look great. And when your book looks great, people click on it or pick it up because they want to read more. How many times have you picked up a book because the cover caught your eye? How many times have you bought a book even if outside your preferred genre because the front cover caught your interest and the back cover copy carried that curiosity through?

That’s my job. I want to make you go wow. And more importantly, I want to make your book irresistible to readers.

Ready? Hit the Get Started Button and tell me about your book.

A cover is just the start In addition to book cover design, my team provides marketing, editorial and publishing help to help your book be it’s best.
