What should you be thinking when looking to get a book cover design created for your new book? The likelihood is that you have just finished your manuscript and this is now going through the editing process (something which can take several weeks or even months), so while you wait for this to be completed you should be planning the cover along with the copy for the back page.
While working with many authors from around the globe we have developed a great way of getting as much information from them as is needed to create a design, but there are things that an author should be thinking of prior to contacting a designer too, here is our top list if what they are.
Research examples: Look at book cover designers on line and make sure that you check out their portfolios, these galleries of completed designs will give you a good idea as to their style and genre’s that they excel in.
We hope this helps when you’re in the process of getting a book cover designed or simply searching for a designer, going into the project with an idea as to what you’ll need will make it a great deal easier.
