Cover Design

Never judge a book by its cover? Yeah, right!
Good covers sell books every day.

You've worked hard to craft your novel, and you've got a lot of marketing and promotion ahead of you. Give yourself a leg up with an eye-catching cover that captures the essence of your story and entices readers to click on it or pick it up from the shelf.

I love a good-looking book cover, and I analyze the covers I like and the covers I don't like and pay attention to cover trends within genres to make sure I'm designing covers crafted to sell. I like to design covers that give an impression of the story within and aren't necessarily an exact literal interpretation. I aim to catch the reader's eye with an impact image that combines with title and font to intrigue the reader enough to check out what's behind the cover. Limiting a cover to a single image or a composite of only two or three keeps a cover clean and simple and also helps me keep the cost down for my clients.

My specialty is historical fiction covers, simply because I spend so much time in the genre, but I'll take on any cover project if I think I can deliver what the client wants. My rates are affordable and are based on the complexity of the composition, the cost of artwork, and the design hours required. Send me an email for a free consultation and estimate:

Jenny went above and beyond as my cover and bookmark designer. Not only is she talented as a designer, but she is patient, polite, and easy to work with. I felt completely comfortable giving her my opinion on design and telling her what I did and didn’t like. Further, her clients are her top priority. She spent countless extra hours helping me to work through several snafus with my printers. She made phone calls on my behalf and even worked on a holiday weekend to help me meet a deadline. I couldn’t have asked for a more talented or professional designer, and I am so grateful that I found her. I plan to work with her again and again in the future. ~Stephanie Carroll

Jenny Q made the tedious, but terribly important, process of cover design painless. As an Indie author, I understand how important Amazon curb appeal is and how a good cover can help propel a good book forward. Jenny helped me define the vision in my head of the book cover I wanted and gave me choices in that theme. I love the cover for Cross the Ocean and have had lots of great comments about it. Thanks to Jenny Q! ~Holly Bush

Don't let anyone tell you cover design doesn't matter. The beautiful covers Jenny created for my novels have made such a difference in sales. With its new cover, sales of my novel, Hope of Israel, jumped 300%. Jenny was so easy to work with and her work is amazing. ~ Patricia O'Sullivan
