Self-Publish Design Services for CreateSpace, Amazon Kindle Direct, Independent Publishers and More! 

Beginning in early 2018, Amazon will no longer offer paid services for authors utilizing their Print-on-Demand publishing platform. What that means for you, as an author, is that you will need to come to Amazon with a print-ready book design.

And that's where I come in.

I have been working with Amazon Kindle Direct / CreateSpace for nearly 10 years, starting in 2009 with the BookSurge group located in Charleston, SC. In that time, I have created nearly 2,000 book designs covering (no pun intended) a diverse range of topics from business & finance to fiction, children's literature and professional development. One of my covers took first place in the Self-Published category at the New York Book Show in 2017 and I have also won two Gold Addy Awards and a Spark Award for my design work.

A brief portfolio of my cover design can be seen here. 

Because of my long-term relationship with Amazon and their Print-on-Demand platform, I have a complete understanding of their processes, requirements and restraints from imagery to file formats to final deliverables. 

Whether you are planning to self-publish with Amazon's Print-on-Demand services or you'll be using another vendor, I would love the opportunity to create your cover and interior layout. I am versed in the process, understand the publishing market and I take pride in designing clean, effective covers that will serve you and your book well. Please fill out the form below with your contact information and some brief information about your book, as well as any ideas you might have, and I will get back with you soon!

I look forward to working with you.
