My name is Yvonne (aka Diverse Pixel) and I am a self-taught digital artist for more than 30 years. I am a CAD drafter by profession and a perfectionist. I am working efficient and reliable and I can ASSURE YOU QUALITY AT ANY TIME! That means I give always my best, in my job and as designer in my spare time.
This website shows you one of my passions, book covers. I am offering all authors a cost effective way to get yourself a professionally designed pre-made and/or custom made book cover in following genres:
Visit my galleries and tell me which design you like by sending me the image #ID via mail. You don't need to purchase the image by yourself. If you want to purchase my stock images for other private and/or commercial projects, please, read and pay attention to the General Terms and Conditions as well the license regulations on each stock image page! If you like to see what others have created with my stock images go to my Portfolio page.
ABOUT MY COVERS
My pre-made book covers are available through my gallery at Selfpubbookcovers where you have to be a member (free) and/or you can purchase the cover through me, the much easier way. Why? Selfpubbookcovers gives you the chance to add the author name, title and a possible tag line by yourself, but to edit your cover the selection of different fonts and text boxes are limited. Another way is when you buy the cover without any text. You only need to delete "type text here" and purchase as a blank cover to customize off this website, using your own software. But as I said before, there is an easier way when you don't want to add the text by yourself or because you don't have the right software for this job. WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO
1 - Find the cover you like here in my
gallery on the right hand side 2 - Send me the number below the image and all information to finish the cover as you want 3 - I will change/add the text as you wish and I will send you a high resolution image within 24h 4 - If you want something changed, tell me what you need When you purchased a pre-made cover what is also available on Selfpubbookcovers, then I will take it out from the gallery to make sure you are the only one who purchased it Prices for pre-made covers are between US$ 69 and US$ 95, same as for the covers from my gallery at Selfpubbookcovers.
If you could not find what you are looking for send me an e-mail and tell me what you need. When you like one or more of my covers but would like to change some elements or colors.. NO PROBLEM! Send me a mail and we discuss further steps. If you need a cover with a spine for print then I would need more information about the sizes and content. I am using for my book covers either my own 3D rendered images, public domain or stock images. When I use public domain or stock images then I use them only in combination with another image, so the cover as is exist only ones. When I use my own creations only you can be sure the cover design with all elements exsist only ONES. When a cover is sold it will be marked as SOLD and it will not be available in any other form. Neither in design nor colour. My prices for custom made covers depend on the overall work and time I invested and start from as little as US $80.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
What do I get for my money? All mentioned prices are for e-books without spine. What size do you send the file? All cover images at Selfpubbookcovers and covers purchased direct through me: 3125 x 4167 at 300dpi What format do you send the file? All images are in JPEG / JPG format Is the cover I buy unique? Yes, it is! What if I want a cover but don't have the title yet? No problem - purchase the blank cover, keep it, add your own text later or come back to me, if you think you are ready. What if I take a cover without title but then days, weeks, months later I want a different cover, can I swap it? No! Once you purchase a cover it is licensed to your name and is signed as SOLD Can I reserve a cover without paying?
No! Can I have less or more text on the cover? I will fit the design and add much text as you want. I want to change the design with different fonts, colours or elements, can you help me? In general YES. I could take out the cover uploaded at Selfpubbookcovers, or I could create you a new similar custom made cover. Prices are mentioned before. Can I use one cover for multiple books? Yes, you can. If you want covers for a series of books with a similar look, then contact me and tell me what you need. If the design is complete new the prices for custom made covers would apply. If you only need some changes, like elements or colors, a fee of US $15 per cover would apply. Can I have my file in a different size or format? Only covers purchased direct through me. Can I have a file with layers for Photoshop so I can edit the image myself?
In general yes, but a much higher fee would apply, because you would have to purchase the copy rights. Also, it would only be possible with designs purchased through me and apply to covers which doesn't include public or stock images. I purchased a file and after months I need to change the text or author name, can you help me? Any change on an approved and purchased file in regards of text a fee of US $15 per cover would apply. Are the stock images licenced? Of course. You can sell books up to 500.000 times. If I design the cover all by myself (without any third party image) I will give you the same rights. Do I have to pay for the stock images? No, you don't need to pay for them. Do you create covers for print-on-demand websites like LuLu or Blurb?
Yes, but I need information about size and so on. Price is negotiable. What if I bring my own image and you would add only the text? No problem, but you have to proof that the image is your property or you purchased a license. If you bring a public domain image I need to know the source. If I have another question?
