Help! I need an eBook cover designer

This is a cry I’m hearing more and more these days. We are building a stable of top-quality eBook cover designers that we can refer Beta Authors to. Or use ourselves for upcoming Voxie Media titles. [See the cover of Robert Phelan’s THE COST OF IGNORANCE published by Voxie Media.]

Below are a handful of book cover designers we feel comfortable recommending. If you know of others who do great design for a reasonable price, please add them in the comments.

We have not worked with all of these designers but we think their cover designs are eye-catching and particularly effective at conveying the author’s brand. Note that this is a list of designers whose book cover styles are more appropriate for nonfiction/business books than romance and thriller titles.

Caveat: rates for cover design vary widely. You can expect to pay from several hundred dollars up to several thousand for an eBook and corresponding print cover by an experienced designer.

BookBaby offers basic eBook cover design for $149 and deluxe design for $279. We have not used them and can’t vouch for the quality.

Book designer Joel Friedlander runs a monthly contest for best eBook covers. You can see all the past winners here.
