Book cover design

To help give your book a professional appearance, we can design a front cover for you. Choose from a free text-only cover or a more eye-catching enhanced design for just £40.

Here are some examples of our work, click the covers to see them on Amazon:

‘Gwen seems to interpret my thoughts into the most stunning covers which are very much admired. Nothing is too much trouble for her or David, and they publish my works quickly and efficiently at a very reasonable cost. The result is good quality product of which I am very proud to sign.’

Eye-catching covers for just £40

Ensure your book stands out from the crowd with an appealing cover design. We can offer our professional design service for the great value price of just £40.

To take advantage of this great offer, you must first provide us with an image for your front cover. Here is an excellent website with a vast selection of images to choose from – http://www.shutterstock.com/ – simply visit this site, find an image you think appropriate for your book then take a note of its reference number and let us do the rest.


Your own image?
Alternatively, you may wish to send us your own image to create a front cover from. That’s no problem, as long as the image is in high definition and you own the rights or have permission to publish the image.

Once an image is selected, we will normally send you two options and you can have up to three drafts of the preferred design. Additional work can be carried out, although extra costs may be charged.


Design your own?
You can also design your own cover and send that to us. We can provide the exact size and other technical information required on request.


Back cover
For the back cover, we normally add the book description text (also called a ‘blurb’) onto a plain design. This service is offered for free as part of our standard package. If you’d like a different design for your back cover, this can be done for an additional charge, from £30.

The book description text (or blurb) is used to describe the book to potential readers on Amazon and ideally should be around 150 words.

Free book covers

Please choose from one of these free cover designs for your book by quoting the name attached to each design.

One option will be sent and one draft is available as part of our free cover service. A second draft is only available if a typing error occurred during the design of the first draft. Additional changes can be made, although extra costs will apply (from £20).

‘The front covers and the book itself were well beyond my expectations and have been very well received. The book is very professional, nice to look at and rather flattering for a first time author’.

Robert Davidson Deesider’s Diary
