We love sci-fi and fantasy. No, I mean, really. We’re a team of full-on, Tolkien-reading, Pathfinder- &- Shadowrun-playing, know-all-the-Marvel-movies-by-heart, straight-up geeks with a bookshelf full of CJ Cherryh, Robert Heinlein, Robin Hobb, Brandon Sanderson, Gene Wolfe, RA Salvatore, David Weber… listen, you name it, we’ve probably read it.
Books succeed on their passion, and so do their covers. That’s where we come in.
You write books. Our covers sell ’em. It’s a match made in heaven.
THE CORE PACKAGE - $599
Our Core Package is our most economical custom package, with the quickest turnaround time. While Core covers are illustrated in the same way our other covers are, there is only one revision round.
WE RECOMMEND THE CORE PACKAGE to authors with more straightforward concepts, with no more than two characters, who are comfortable taking a step back from the creation process and can trust us to provide them with a knockout cover, based on the strength of our portfolio.
For authors with more complex concepts that may require a more comprehensive revision phase to get it right—or for those authors who want to be more involved in the creation process—we recommend our Elite Package.
THE ELITE PACKAGE - $1249
Our Elite Package is what we often refer to as the full taco. You want total involvement in the production process and an extended revision phase? This is where you get it. The Elite Package includes multiple preliminary sketches, and up to three rounds of comprehensive revision. You get the same top-notch quality as with our other packages, but with the opportunity to be more involved in the process from beginning to end.
WE RECOMMEND THE ELITE PACKAGE to authors who are looking for something particularly complex or specific, or who anticipate needing more than one revision to get it right.
Elite covers generally take more time to produce because of the expanded revision phase, and available slots are limited. We offer rush services for an additional fee, if necessary.
We offer series continuations for all of our premades.
Variations – Series continuations that are variations on the original premade concept (the same character in a different pose, the same spaceship from a different angle and another background, etc) are billed at the same price as the original premade. You will be given the opportunity to request minor tweaks.
New Concepts – If you require major changes to the concept of the original, or a new concept altogether, we recommend upgrading to a Core or Elite package for your series continuations.
Non-Premade Series Continuations – If you have an existing series that we did not create, or are seeking a series continuation for one of our custom packages, we recommend that you book a Core or Elite package for your series continuation.
HOW IT WORKS
GET IN TOUCH
Ready to get your cover project started? Drop us a line using the form below and let us know what you have in mind, and what your ideal start date is.
To lock in your booking date, we require a booking fee of $75 per cover.
Once your booking date rolls around, it’s time to talk concept. If you’re rolling an Elite Package, this will involve 1-3 preliminary sketches as we hash out our concept for the cover design.
For Core clients, we’ll agree on a solid concept before getting to the painting phase.
This is where the magic happens. We’ll take your concept and do what we do best–paint a killer cover.
The first 50% of your cover fee (minus your $75 booking fee) is due prior to beginning this step.
The number of revision rounds you’ll have access to will depend on the package you’ve selected.
Elite or Core, we’re fully committed to your satisfaction with your final cover, and confident we can provide you with an end result that you’ll not only love–it’ll sell your book, too.
Once we’ve got your final approval, the remainder of your fee is due. We’ll provide you with a link to your outstanding invoice, and get your final files prepared.
There is no time-limit on paperback formatting, so if you’re not quite ready, take your time. We know the publication process can be complicated and stressful, and our goal is the be the easy part.
Cancellations and Refunds
If we get to the concept phase (Step 2) and you’re not 100% confident with the approach we’re taking, or feel that we’re not a good creative fit, we can cancel the project with no further financial commitment. No harm, no foul, no awkwardness.
Our $75 booking fee is non-refundable.
