Making books beautiful,

WELCOME TO WICKED BOOK COVERS

 

Wicked Book Covers has just reached its two-year anniversary, and in that time, I’ve learned a few things along the way.  My work has gotten much cleaner and much more original than when I started.  But most importantly, I’ve noticed a trend in cover design.  It seems like we see the same stock images over and over and over again on lots of different covers.  Sure, they all may look a little different, but at the end of the day they don’t stand out from the crowd.  So, with much debate, I’ve decided to change the way we do things here at Wicked.  First of all, I have eliminated some of the services we used to provide in order to focus my time on what’s really important to me, and that’s GREAT covers!  Second, I’ve decided that I will no longer be using stock photo models on my covers.

What does this mean?  This means that I will be providing authors with a one-of-kind cover that they can’t get anywhere else.  No one will have the exact same photo on their cover as you.  Your cover will be made with a combination of 3D models (all created by Wicked) and digital painting, layered with a little bit of stock for backgrounds and textures.  All this together will give you the one-of-kind, stop-and-look-at-me effect that will help you sell your book!

This decision took some serious debate on my part because I know that there are a lot of authors that WANT the look that stock photo models give.  Many people I talked to about this idea of mine were skeptical that I would be eliminating those clients.  But, after much thought, I came to the conclusion that was really ok. There are a lot of designers out there, some who are really fantastic, who provide this type of cover so I don’t feel like I’m doing anyone a disservice by no longer offering it.

NEWEST AVAILABLE PREMADE BOOK COVERS

For anyone who is thinking of self-publishing a book, I want to recommend a graphic designer who made what could have been a daunting process for me enjoyable and stress free. "Confessions of a Serial Songwriter" was picked up by an established publisher but to her credit, Lori Follett's formatting (inside and out) went along with it. There are many self-publishing companies who offer a variety of services. I can't imagine anyone would have a better work ethic than Lori.

Shelly Peiken, Grammy Nominated #1 Songwriter and Author of "Confessions of a Serial Songwriter"

I am over the moon with the amazing book cover design that Lori made for me. Lori is great to work with and keeps you informed and updated throughout the entire process - I could not be happier with the finished result and I look forward to working with Lori again in the future.

Chris Turnbull, Author

Lori was so easy to work with. Her work is prompt, her communication excellent, and I came away with a book cover that I am so ecstatic with, I don't want to stop looking at it. The only problem I had was having two perfect covers to choose from! (That was very hard!) I am definitely planning on using her again for future books.

Kayla Howarth, Author

Lori was such a pleasure to work with. After filling out the form, she sent two concepts, both of which I loved. I had key elements I wanted included on the cover and she nailed it on the first shot. She's very professional and her pricing is affordable and competitive. I look forward to working with her again.
