Is the cover I buy unique?
Yes! For many of my covers I use my own 3D rendered images. When I use stock images I will make sure the cover is unique by using additional images and/or elements or artistic techniques. What does the price below your cover preview include?
The price below the preview is for e-books only. It includes the changes to the text but it doesn’t include the additional work for a cover for print.
I want to purchase one of your pre-made covers, but I need some changes.
No problem when you want to buy a cover from my GALLERY. Changes to the text and font is included in the price to be seen below the preview. For major changes custom cover prices and rules will apply. If you want to buy a cover from my galleries at SelfPubBookCovers and you need some changes you have to follow the rules on that website and to fill out a form/request.
Can I use one cover for multiple books or a book series?
In general yes, but only on request. I need this information together with your order. If you decide to use your single cover for a series later, minor changes to the text can be made for a small fee of $US 15 for each additional cover. Major changes can be made also, but a much higher fee would apply. When I bought a cover.. is it mine and can do what I want with it?
No! All files with layers are my property and not for sale.
I changed my mind and I want another book cover design. Is it possible?
In general yes, but only when I didn't much work on the current cover. If you change your mind after I finished the cover and you approved it, a fee for a complete new cover would apply. You can always make some changes to the current cover as long it doesn't exceed the 7 reviews. After that you have to pay a fee.
I changed my mind about the title? Can you help me?
After your final approval and cover deliverey a small fee of $US 10 applys for minor changes to the text. If major changes are necessary a higher fee will apply.
Are the stock images licensed?
Of course. You are allowed to sell your books 250.000 times. After that you have to pay an extended license for each stock image used.
Do I have to pay for the image licenses in addition to your art work?
the price for licenses is included for pre-made covers
for custom covers 3 image licenses are included
$US 5 apply for any other additional image
Note: If I HAVE to use stock images from websites other than Depositphotos.com I will charge an additional fee
After publishing my book as print version, the cover doesn't look like the original image ?
To create a print cover I have to follow rules in regards of dimensions and colours. I make sure that all images comply with those rules. After delivery I don't take any liability for errors or misprints in regards of colours. If the print doesn't look like the way you expected I can make some adjustments from $US 25.
What if I lose or delete my downloaded files by accident?
You are responsible for all your files, but in case of an accident you can order a copy for a small fee of $US 10.
What if I bring my own image?
No problem, but you have to proof that the image is your property or you purchased a license. I DON'T accept public domain or free images!
How can I pay?
Payments have to be made through PayPal with your account or credit card. You will receive an invoice via PayPal.
Do I have to pay in advance?
For custom covers you have to pay a nonrefundable 50% of the total price before I start to work. For pre-made covers you have to pay 100% in advance before I make minor changes to the text or other elements.
Do I have to sign a contract?
Yes, but only for custom covers! The content regulates the copyrights and ownership.
Are you an indie author with a small budget? Did you create your book cover by yourself? How does it look? Be honest! How are your sales? Could your sales be better with a new cover or at least a make-over?
I offer all authors a cost effective way to make your cover more presentable. Sometimes changes to the font for title and name can make a difference. So, if you are interested contact me for further information. A simple make-over starts at $25.
