Book Cover Design

It’s a fact that most people do judge a book by its cover. No matter how incredible your writing is, your book needs to have a great cover in order to entice someone to pick it up off the shelf.

There’s plenty to keep in mind—font, theme, tone, as well as genre. All of those need to be conveyed in the mere seconds a reader is passing your book on the shelves.

You’ve worked hard on your manuscript. Perhaps it has taken years to complete. Let me help you by designing a cover that will sell! I’ll will work with you (via email and phone) to get you the cover your story deserves.

Book Cover Designs start from $750, but may include extra fees, such as stock image or font purchases, and excessive revision fees. This pricing includes a print cover (front, back, and spine) and the e-book cover. The more information you provide me, the more accurately I can design the best cover for your story.

Interior Book Design

In addition to designing covers, I also design paperback and kindle interiors for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry books. These rates range depending on type of project, number of pages/chapters, and how detailed the design needs to be. Nonfiction or books with photos, glossaries, and/or exercises will take longer to design. Fiction and memoir will be quicker, unless there are images added.

I will always ask for your feedback, proofing, and final approval.

Interior Design starts from $1300 for simple layout (memoir, poetry, fiction) and from $2000 for nonfiction with a lot of elements like a glossary, graphs, charts, and photos.

Writing Coaching

Struggling to finish your book? Keep revising the first chapter(s)? Don’t know where your book is going? Have you arrived to the middle of your book and feel stuck?

If so, I can help. Let’s start with your free 15-minute consultation via phone. I’ve been giving and receiving writing advice and editing for more than 10 years. I love stories, I love helping writers, and sharing my writing knowledge.

Because the writing process is different for each writer for many reasons—experience, genre, process, finding time—I tailor my coaching to each client’s needs. Each session includes a 45-minute zoom or phone conversation about your writing to see where you’re struggling, where you see the project going, and your projected timeline. I’ll ask you questions about the struggles you’re facing, your writing process, and any other factors that could be affecting your writing time (sleep, caffeine, work, stress, worry, confidence). We’ll work together on a plan to get you back on track and to a final draft.

Coaching sessions are $150 each. Each session includes:

  • 45 minute phone call
  • reading/editing/comment time on sections of writing between 18-20 pages
  • feedback on your writing (written via Word)

The number of sessions you’ll need depends on your writing goals.

Package sessions also available for discount, paid in advance:

  • 10 sessions (200 pgs) – $1350 ($150 discount)
  • 15 sessions (300 pgs) – $2025 ($225 discount)
  • 20 sessions (400 pgs) – $2700 ($300 discount)
