Q: I'm interested in working with you. How do I reach you?
A: You can either send me a message via the contact page or send me a message through my Facebook page. I usually respond within 2 days.
Q: What's your process like?
A: Usually what happens, once both parties have agreed to work together, is that I'll issue a contract and empty brief. Once the contract is signed by both, I'll go through the brief and discuss potential ideas with the client.
Q: Do you charge a booking fee?
A: Yes, I do require a booking fee upon every contract signed. My fee is 50% of the agreed sum.
Q: How long is your turnaround time?
A: 3-5 days.
Q: I understand you are booked out in advance, but I need a cover done urgently.
A: I can squeeze you in, but I charge a $200 rush fee.
Q: How many edits do you allow?
A: You are entitled to 1 major redo and 15 minor edits. I'm very lenient with minor edits, but abuse of that will lead to a greater charge such as paperback/hardback dimension changes. 1 edit is fine, but any subsequent changes are $100 per edit/cover.
Q: What is the design process like?
A: We gather information about your book through the cover art brief. I'll ask for a detailed synopsis, your ideas, important themes and symbols, and examples of covers you like or that convey the tone you’re looking for. Some authors have specific ideas for their covers, while others have general thoughts. Once I have all the information I need, I’ll develop a concept for you.
Q: Do you offer multiple design options for me to choose from?
A: No, because that would equate to two or more covers (designs). I will provide you with a draft based on your brief, and we will go from there. If the draft is greatly different from what is expected, you are entitled to one complete redo. I also offer livestream and phone-call sessions so I can understand and deliver what you're looking for!
Q: What is your preferred payment method?
A: I only use Paypal.
Q: How far out do you book?
A: I allow bookings as far out as 2 years. Currently, I am booked out till November 2021, meaning I will only accept bookings for that month, but my 2022 schedule is open for bookings. However, I'm willing to make urgent exceptions. If you'd still like to get on my 2021 schedule, just send me a message, I'm sure we can work something out.
