Can I use my own cover design?
updated 9 months ago
The short answer is, "yes!" But it requires a bit of explanation...
It's a sad truth, but people do judge a book by its cover. So we take great care to make sure that the cover for your book is one that will get people to pick it up and look at more closely.
While our preference is to design the covers we use, as long as the covers provided meet our criteria, we're happy to use them, but if it's not going to serve its purpose, we may reject it.
This is an area we have won many awards for, and we're clear on what makes a cover design work and what doesn't.
If this is an option you're considering pursuing, you'll want to let us know as soon as possible so we can provide your designer with our cover specifications. And, as above, the cover design must meet our quality standards. You can find more information about our requirements on our website.
