How it Works
Are you an indie author?
Give your ebook a head start and find new readers with our wide range of premade book covers. Our gorgeous ebook covers are available in all major genres.
Each cover is lovingly crafted by graphic designers with experience in creating book covers.
Our team of talented graphic designers spend hours creating these beautiful ebook covers for indie authors. Once the best images and fonts are selected, these are blended together to produce the best ebook cover for your novel.
Only the most beautiful, striking stock images are used in our covers. Our designers ensure that the chosen images are eye-catching and intriguing, and further enhance the image through applying filters and effects.
Once the images have been processed, our designers then hand-pick the best fonts that not only suit the image, but match the genre too. The gorgeous fonts are then crafted into bold, easily visible titles and author names.
Frequently Asked Questions
The quickest way to find a matching cover for your book is to search by a specific genre (ie: Romance). You can do this by selecting any of the genres from the right-hand sidebar. This will alter the shop display so that only romance e-book covers are visible. This will save you time going through the available choices.
If you would like to broaden your search, or if your novel doesn’t fit well into a specific genre, then try to search using keywords or the main search function on the navigation bar.
This will filter all the covers in the shop according to the keywords you’ve selected (ie: Brunette, Couple Embracing, or try a colour or a mood).
Once you’ve clicked on a cover, you’ll see a short description and beneath that, a few fields that you will need to complete. These are details such as the name of the author (you!), the title of your book, and a subtitle if you wish to add this.
You can then add the item to your cart and either continue shopping or check out and pay for your cover.
Once you’ve added an item to your cart, you can go ahead and check out. At the moment we accept Paypal (international) or Payfast (South Africa Only).
With Payfast, you can use either your debit/credit card, or instant EFT. For more information about Payfast, click on this link to check out their website. Many South African online stores are now using Payfast, so if you haven’t signed up yet, now’s the time 🙂
As soon as the payment has been completed, your order comes through to our design team, who will begin work on your design.
If we see an order like this coming through, we’ll contact you to make sure you don’t have the title yet (who knows, maybe someone will write a book entitled “No Title Yet”… we’ll have to make sure!).
We will then keep your order aside until you contact us to change the title.
It takes approximately 24-48 hours for your artwork to be designed. Please note that if your title/author name are much longer/shorter than the examples shown, the completed cover will look slightly different as our designers will have to move around the typography to make it legible (and beautiful!)
We will then email you the completed artwork in the perfect resolution for Kindle devices. It will be supplied at web resolution (72dpi) and in a JPG format. This same artwork can be used at various e-retailers, such as Smashwords.
Firstly, you will need to know the trim size of your book. If you’re not sure what this means, then head over to Createspace to find out more.
Once you know what trim size you want your novel to be, you can then calculate your page count. This is another important factor, since the spine of the book is dependent on the amount of pages and trim size.
Only once you know these two factors can we assist with designing your paperback cover.
You will also need to supply us with additional information about the book, such as an author biography, a high-resolution image of the author, and the blurb of the book.
Each cover is held for 60 minutes when an order is placed, but if you spot a different one, you can request a switch within 2 hours after placing the order.
If the second cover is available, then we’ll do our best to switch you out with the cover you prefer.
If, however, another order has already been placed for the new cover, then we will be unable to switch out the covers.
