YOU'VE CREATED MAGIC BY CRAFTING WORDS INTO A STORY. NOW LET ME CREATE A COVER THAT WILL Enchant AND Delight YOUR READERS.

You'll get an irresistible cover that's designed from scratch and will leave your readers speechless from the very first glance. Sell more books by ensuring your first impression is an excellent one!

CUSTOM ILLUSTRATED BOOK COVERS

Benefits of an illustrated cover:

1. Every detail stands out and makes your book cover a piece of art.

 2. Your book stands out in the market.

3. It helps you build an author brand.

4. The cover images (characters, creatures, background, effects etc) are drawn from scratch so you get a 100% unique cover.

5. It is created exactly for your story whereas good stock images could be difficult or impossible to find.

You worked hard to create this book.

You deserve a cover that matches the work you put in.

I'm Kim, and I'm here to dress the pages of  your story with a stunning cover that both you and your readers will ADORE.

I am both an artist and avid reader since birth. My favourite genres are fantasy, paranormal and sci-fi but I love to create covers for a wide variety of genres. 

My designs are made to entice readers to pick up your book. I know how to bring your vision to life and enhance it to fit in with genre and reader expectations while making sure it still stands out in the market. I know that readers definitely DO judge books by their covers, so having a unique, attention grabbing cover that targets the right audience is essential.

I think illustrated covers look absolutely gorgeous on bookshelves, so if you feel the same way, I believe I am the right fit for your project!

But please have a look at my work and decide for yourself :)

If you have any questions for me, I'm just an email away.

MY PROCESS

CONTACT ME

After reviewing my process and pricing info, pick out a design package and fill out the form below.

You can check out my past work in my 'Portfolio' page, 

SEND

I’ll contact you within 24 hours to confirm your booking, and to schedule the date to begin.

Next,  I will send you a questionnaire about the book which will help me understand your book and needs better.

I will also send you the Contract to sign and an invoice for the deposit payment. 50% deposit is due within 48 hours of the booking or you may risk losing your booking spot. Balance payment will be due before the final cover files are sent over to you.

DESIGN

STEP 1 - Initial Sketch

Within the first 3 days, I'll create the initial sketch/s based on the agreed-upon concept. I'll send it to you to go through the necessary revisions. Once you approve of the sketch, we move on

STEP 2 - Illustration

I paint over the initial sketch until it's a fleshed out illustration. I also add the text and usually give multiple fonts to choose from.

Then its feedback time, but be thorough in your requests, as custom covers are limited to 3 revisions. Any extra will be charged at an hourly rate.

FINALISE

Once you’re satisfied with the draft, I will do my thing and bring your cover to life with all the shiny details!

I'll show you the final cover and if you notice any minor issues I'll fix it but no major changes can be made at this stage without incurring an extra charge, as the revision stage is over.

​Once approved and balance payment has been made, I send all the necessary high-resolution, non-watermarked files.

It’s time to celebrate, your cover is ready!

Wishing you an amazing and successful new release!
