My name is Yvonne (aka Diverse Pixel) and I am a digital artist for more than 30 years. 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 for different genres.
MY STOCK IMAGES
I sell 3D rendered science fiction and fantasy images as royalty free stock images via Shutterstock, Fotolia and Depositphotos. If you like to use one of those images for your cover, no problem!
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!

Is the cover I buy unique?
I use stock images for many of my covers. So it can happen someone else used the same image. But I make sure the cover is unique by using additional images and/or elements. Ask before you buy a cover through my website.
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.
