Who does your book covers? I get asked that question a lot. With the ever-increasing influx of independent publishing opportunities, producing a high-quality, affordable, and professional book cover is a must.
Book cover design is an art unto itself, and one that is integral to any author’s marketing efforts. Unless you happen to be an expert in design and marketing (in addition to being an awesome author, of course!), your book cover probably isn’t something you’re going to want to relegate to DIY.
But it can be tough to find a design partner who understands your needs as an independent author, is responsible enough to meet your deadlines, and produces gorgeous work–all at a price affordable to the often shoestring budget of emerging authors.
That’s why I’m always ecstatic when people ask me who does my covers. Because I love spreading the word about my designer: Damonza.
Why Damonza Is My Professional Book Cover Designer of Choice
I started using the company when Structuring Your Novel came out–and then I immediately had them redo my (ahem, DIY) cover for Outlining Your Novel, so the two books would be visually branded together.
Since then, Damonza has also done the covers for the Outlining Your Novel Workbook, the Structuring Your Novel Workbook, Conquering Writer’s Block and Summoning Inspiration, and the updated version of my medieval novel Behold the Dawn.
In another month or so, I’ll be hiring them to do the cover for Storming (and I can’t wait to see what they come up with!).
As if the fact that the covers are gorgeous wasn’t enough, Outlining Your Novel, Structuring Your Novel, and Behold the Dawn have all earned Gold Star Cover Design awards from Joel Friedlander of The Book Designer.
Damonza is extremely easy to work with, offers lightning-fast turnaround times, and is exceptionally well-priced for the services they offer. I recommend them without reservation.
