Premade and Custom Book Cover Designs by Violeta Nedkova
 
 

Hey there rebel!

My name is Violeta and among other things, I make eye-catching and one-of-a-kind book covers for indie authors. :)

I’m a writer myself, and if you’re about to self-publish a book, then I’m in awe of you because I know how much work and discipline it takes. I also believe that a book cover can make or break a book, especially for indie authors, which is why I am in love with the art form and why I want to help you have the success you seek.

What you see below is my portfolio of premade covers (that are absolutely not sold more than once, that’s gross) and I also take on custom orders as of last week, so if you want a book cover tailor-made for your story, you can now order one. Wheeeeeeee.

I know you're creative and you want to design your own book cover, but trust me, if you don't have the experience and training, you'll fail and your sales will fail, so trust the professionals. (Wouldn’t it be such a relief to outsource this scary thing to someone else?)

Now go ahead and scroll down to see what I have available or order your very own custom-made book cover.

Sparrow's Well by Anna Marie Savino

Being that people still judge a book by its cover, I needed to make sure I chose an artist that would accurately represent what is inside of my heart’s work. After asking a few questions about my novel, she was able to craft a cover that represented the symbols and motifs so elegantly! Not only are her covers stunning, her personality and work ethic made me feel comfortable and confident in her ability to produce quality work that satisfied my desires and needs. I couldn’t imagine leaving such a precious work of mine in anyone else’s hands and will use her services again in the near future!

I had a great story, and the goal to publish it before the end of the year.  Having no cover and coming up on the holidays, I was resigned to design it myself, but I decided to ask Violeta instead.  She was awesome and encouraging, and she squeezed my request into her end of year schedule. Not only did she get me a cover by my deadline, she captured the feeling of the novella, and when I asked for minor tweaks, this rebel professional came back with those quickly, even enthusiastically. I will definitely request her services again.

The Premade Covers

These are ebook covers for Kindle, but a print cover can be created for you if you should need one. You can request any changes you like and once you buy the cover, it will be yours exclusively, which means nobody else will have the same cover. Bear in mind that premade covers are more general looking, so if you want a book cover that reflects your story, you need to order a custom book cover.

If you have more questions. scroll down to the FAQ’s.

I believe:

  • You shouldn’t judge a book by it's cover, but every single person does…

  • The book cover is the single most important element in your book marketing arsenal.

  • The book cover’s job is not to explain what your book’s about, but to catch the reader’s eye, so they can click on that tiny little thumbnail and then learn more about it from the blurb.

  • Simplicity and clarity always beat busyness and convoluted covers. Always.

  • A book cover should fit its respective mood and genre, not confuse or worse, mislead people.

  • A book cover should be aesthetically pleasing because, come on, it’s a piece of art, dammit.

  • A better book cover means better sales. Period.

  • Your story deserves the most eye-catching and original book cover and for indie authors, it makes all the difference because you don’t have the power of a publishing house behind you.

  • You deserve an ethical service that doesn’t give you recycled book covers.

 

Want a premade book cover?

No Paypal? No problem.

Want a custom book cover?

No Paypal? No problem.

 
 

Will I be the sole owner of my cover?

Of course! Nobody else will have your cover, ever. Once you buy it, it’s yours forever, and I won’t make anything similar again either. There are some shady people out there who’ll sell their premade designs multiple times, but I don’t see how this is helpful to anyone. Your design should be unique.

These are ebook covers. Do you make print covers?

Yep, any premade cover you see can easily be made into a print cover and you can also order a custom ebook and print cover for your book launch.

Do you do illustrations?

No, I don’t do illustrated covers. I work with photos. :)

Do you make non-fiction book covers?

Not generally, but if you want one, I’ll make it.

Is there anything you don’t do?

Actually, yes. While I love trying new things, I don’t think I’m the best person to portray religious or political content, and for children’s books, I think illustrations are best, so let me know if I can recommend an illustrator for ya.

That’s all, everything else I am happy to try.

Can I bring my own images?

You don’t have to, but if you absolutely need a specific image in your design, then you can let me find it OR bring your own, as long as it’s high resolution and you have the right to be using it for commercial purposes

Can I request changes?

Yes, you can request changes to both the premade covers and the custom covers, and they’re included in the price. Don’t worry about whether I can do it or not, just ask for what you want and I’ll let you know if it’s possible, but generally speaking, positioning, resizing, changing fonts and colors is all doable.

Can I request changes to the premades?

You can request minor changes - font, color, etc. - and stay within the price range OR request bigger changes - new elements, etc. - and pay extra. However, the result may fit your story better and make you happier, so… your call.

Do I need to pay extra for licenses?

Nope, I pay for all the fonts and photos. The only thing you might have to pay for eventually is if your book runs over 500,000 sales and you have a special photo in your cover that requires an extended license, of which I’ll let you know.

Do I need to worry about copyright?

Your designer has to worry about that, not you. I use both 100% free photos and fonts AND pay for some extra-special fonts and photos (for example, photos of recognizable people and places you need permission for), but I always double check if I have the right to use the font or image I’m using for your cover.

Are the photos commonly used stock photos?

I believe that you deserve a unique design that matches your unique story.

That said, I try to collect photos that are unique and then I add enough treatment to make the covers original enough to be different from anything you’ve seen. I also check on Google Image Search whether the more expensive photos I have have been made into covers, but the tool isn’t perfect, so no guarantees.

Do you offer book banners?

I do in fact offer book banners to my clients. I think using a banner for your #CoverReveal is more professional and it can include a mockup of your cover on a kindle, ipad, and paperback. Truth is, your book cover will look better on some social media platforms (Pinterest) than on others (facebook), so a banner kind of solves that problem as it can be made to fit all the platforms.

What do you recommend I get?

If you have enough money to order a custom cover, that’s my #1 recommendation because that way you’ll have a more original and more specific to your story design rather than a generic one that could match a lot of stories.

If you have a miniscule budget, get a premade book cover, but from an ethical designer who won’t sell it to a bunch of other people as well.

Just don’t do your own book cover unless you have design skills. (It’s just that more often than not, it results in confused readers, low sales, etc.)

What software do you use?

Photoshop. I don’t use any templates or programs that make ready covers, I actually enjoy making designs from scratch. So don’t worry, what you get is a completely original design from my brain to your hands. Ha.

What if I have more questions?
