HOW DOES IT WORK?

Please contact me using the (ask a question tab) with a description of what you would like on your cover, please provide as much detail as possible. I have a small questionnaire I will send you pertaining to your cover needs, once I have all the info required I will seek out appropriate stock images to use for your cover. I will then contact you with the images I find and let you choose which main elements work best for you. If you have a complicated or very specific idea in mind, we can discuss your ideas prior to beginning.

FAQ

* What type of images and effects do you use in covers?

All my work is in digital format using a combination of stock photos, 3d rendering and digital painting to create a truly unique cover for you.

*Do I need to pay extra for stock photos?

Stock photos are included in the price of the cover design unless you need something very specific that is not available from the stock houses I have a membership from.

*Do I own the rights to the cover art?

You will own exclusive rights to use the artwork for your cover and promotional needs without hesitation. Promotional needs includes, banners, posters, bookmarks and anything else you may want to create to promote your book. The actual copyright remains with the photographer of the original stock images purchased under the standard license while the copyright to the derivative work I create remains with me.

*What Type of license is purchased for the stock images used and will I need to purchase another license?

Stock images are purchased under a Standard license agreement which allows the sale of up to 250 thousand printed or digital copies to be made. In the event that your book sells more than 250 k copies, you will be required to purchase an extended license from the stock house, extended licenses are around $70 per image and are good for life. This is not a requirement from me but from the stock houses.

*How do I credit you for the cover?

Simply adding my name (Jessica Allain) to your description wherever the book is being sold is great, if you would like to also add a link to my site, it would be most appreciated but not necessary.

*Can I send you examples of artwork and other covers I like?

Yes! The more detail I have about your preferences the better!

*Can You work with my photos?

*Yes! As long as the photos are of good resolution and quality I can work with them. Also keep in mind that you must own the rights to or have permission to use the photos commercially.

*Can I commission you for a cover even if I am working with a publisher?

Yes! Just make sure your publisher is ok with using outside artists for your cover.

*Can I commission a front cover now and get the back cover done at a later date?

Yes! you can get only the front done now and have the the back done later, just pay for the Ebook package primarily and we can take care of the rest when you are ready for the back cover.

*What if I need both Ebook and paperback?

Simply purchase the paperback package and your ebook front cover will be included in the purchase.
