Designing a successful book cover takes hours of time to create… it doesn’t “just” happen
When you hire me to design your cover, I will ask a lot of questions to make sure that your vision is fully understood, genre and audience. I’ve been doing this a long time and over the years, my business has developed a reputation of trust and excellence. I really care about the unique and project specific attributes of each book cover that is designed.
As a seasoned book designer, design professional as soon as our conversations begin, I immediately start imagining how your words create images and how they will all come together in the end. Part of the creative discussion involves the two of us looking for just the right images for your project and once selected you will be provided with working design comps to review before finalizing the book cover design of your choice. I make sure all aspects of the cover are in the correct place, right down to the smallest of details. Your final cover will present a compellingly professional and complete vision.
I know this is not the only book design service out there… please check my references from past and returning authors and small business clients … check me out before you decide and give me a call.

“What I create is not just any book cover design… you are getting an indispensable self-publishing marketing and branding tool that will continue to work for you through all promotional vehicles.”

I can’t say enough about Karrie Ross!
As a first-time author / self-publisher, Karrie personally helped guide me through the process of cover design, interior graphics and lay-out, and even went so far as to offer suggestions about back-cover content that would help draw the reader into the concept of the book. From my perspective, Karrie was a delight to work with as I endeavored to put together a professional and eye-catching work that framed an extraordinary piece of true-crime history. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone contemplating a self-publishing project and I will be returning to her in the future when the time comes to publish additional works of true crime, and fictional pieces crafted in the murder mystery genre. Thanks Karrie for all of your support!

Karrie did a wonderful job from concept to completion.
Although I had my mind set on a different design, her creativity, skill, and most importantly her experience, shaped the images into a stunning cover. She was very accessible and easy to work with. A true professional.
