Your cover story

ONE of the most fought-over territories in the book trade, covers can be a minefield.

But I have a simple philosophy: less is more. With design credentials and a good eye, I can create a simple, elegant and smart face for your eBook publication.

The $200 fee buys you a compelling cover built around the artful use of typography, one strong image (or set of images) and a striking colour palette.

For an additional $100, working with the cover template from your online publishing platform, I can also cover your paperback!

A $100 deposit (or $150 for eBook-paperback package) upfront will get me started on your cover/s, with the balance ($100 for eBook only, or $150 for eBook-paperback package) due on completion. Check my simple Terms and Conditions.


“Michael has a well-tuned eye for an eye-catching book cover. He understands the way book covers work, how to use what typeface to show up in thumbnail for instance, and how adding a small detail can tell you so much – such as the silhouette of a woman he suggested for my book about my ancestress. He is also very amenable and happy to work with the writer’s own suggestions.” Patsy Trench
