Custom Paperback Cover
Fill out the Custom Paperback Cover Request Form for this service.
I only create paperbacks as part of an Add-On for an ebook cover. They’re specifically formatted for Amazon KDP and/or IngramSpark.
The KDP cover costs $35 USD while the IngramSpark cover costs $45 USD. If you need both, don’t buy them separately. Just order the IngramSpark cover, and the fee for reformatting that to KDP standards is $10 USD. Once I receive your Add-On request, I’ll send you the invoice (if you haven’t already paid), and I’ll begin the work once the invoice is paid in full.
You’ll get three free review rounds to ask for textual changes. The front cover will not be altered; only the backside and spine. If you want more changes after the third free round, a $15 fee will apply for each additional review round. After you approve it, expect the final .pdf and .jpg format copies–without watermarks–within a couple of days.
Need changes made after Approval? Read this.
I have two styles in which I create paperback covers. Check out these examples:
In Style 1 (Forever Winter), the paperback is a full wrap, as in the background image goes from front to back. The text on the back cover may or may not be inside a box. If your print book has at least 79 pages, I’ll be able to add text to the spine. The back-matter comes with the title, optional hook/tagline, optional review quote, and blurb.
In Style 2 (A Hero’s Heart), the front and back covers are separate. I’ll use a similar color or photo for the back half to match the front half. The text may or may not be inside a box. If your print book has at least 79 pages, I’ll be able to add text to the spine. The back-matter comes with the title, optional hook/tagline, optional review quote, and blurb.
I use Style 1 by default, but if the background image isn’t wide enough to go from front to back to produce a full wrap, I will use Style 2. The available paperback options are stated on the ebook cover’s product page.
