AUTHOR SERVICES - PUBLICISING YOUR BOOK
Publishing a book is about so much more than getting the words down on the page. Of course, that is the most important part. But you also need to get people to read those words.
This is where I can help.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to order any of the services below, or with any questions you have. I’ll be happy to help.
A good map can add so much to your fantasy or science fiction book. It won’t save you from having to build worlds, but it will help you share your creation with your readers once you’ve done all the hard work.
Get a black and white or colour map for your print or ebook. All options catered for.
Prices start at $200.

BOOK COVER ANIMATION
Want to help your book cover stand out from a sea of others? Add some animation.
Making your cover move is a great way to grab the attention of your potential readers, on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, You Tube, or on your own website.
3D MOCKUP OF YOUR BOOK
If you order a premade or custom cover design from me then this is included as standard for no additional cost.
But if you already have a cover and you want to see it in 3D, or if you want additional 3D mockups over and above the one included in your cover package (perhaps in different orientations), then why not order some more mockups.
SOCIAL MEDIA GRAPHICS
Announce your new book with style with a custom graphic showcasing your book cover and some important information (“Coming soon”, “Out now”, “On sale for only $XX” etc).
Make a splash on social media and don’t suffer the scourge of cropping – let your potential readers see the whole image with these announcement graphics that are sized specifically for different platforms.
If you order a custom cover design from me then this is included as standard for no additional cost.
FACEBOOK AND TWITTER BANNERS
Social media loves images. But book covers tend to be the wrong size for a Facebook or Twitter banner.
Never fear. I can easily convert your book cover artwork into an image that will fit a Facebook page or your Twitter profile. That way, your book cover artwork is front and centre whenever a potential customer visits your page.
Adding your book cover artwork to a bookmark is a great way to publicise your book and share your cover art with your audience. As long as you are giving away the bookmarks, not selling them, then you are free to use one of my cover designs on a bookmark that you create.
If you would like me to design a bookmark for you then I will happily do this. Prices start from only $25.
BANNERS AND DISPLAY IMAGES
ASK ME FOR A QUOTE
Getting out in front of your fans is a great way to spread the word about your book. And when you do, you will want something large and eye-catching to grab their attention.
You are free to use your book cover artwork to design a banner or standee to promote yourself at events. If you would like me to design a banner for you then I am happy to do this. Please drop me an email with your requirements and I will give you a quote.
This is one of my regular customers Tommy Clark with the banner I designed for him.
Are there things I cannot do with my book cover artwork?
There are some restrictions on what you can do. The big one is that – unless we have agreed otherwise and this is stated in our written agreement – you are not allowed to make items to sell using the cover artwork. This could include prints of the cover artwork or t-shirts that feature the cover design. If you want to create merchandise using the cover artwork then please get in touch and we can look at whether we can extend your licence to include this.
If you are unsure about what is or isn’t allowed then please check your Acceptance of Commission document, have a read of my FAQs, or simply drop me an email at email@example.com and I will be happy to help.
Why are all the prices in US Dollars?
Even though I am based in the UK, many of my customers come from the US and other locations around the world. As of spring 2020, in order to help the writing community easily compare the costs of my services with other cover designers out there, I have started to display my prices in US Dollars.
If you are based in the UK and would like a quote in Pounds then please let me know and I will provide you with the equivalent price in Pounds.
