You’ve written an amazing story, and now it’s time to release it into the world to be enjoyed by as many people as possible! Let me help by designing a cover that will entice your potential readers.
Tips To Remember About Cover Design:
A cover promises a good read.
You have 6 seconds or less to attract a potential reader. Think of your cover as a billboard trying to catch the attention of viewers as they speed by. The cover is where your relationship with a reader begins.
Think like a reader, not a writer.
Great covers make readers “feel” something rather than “tell” them something. A great cover expresses mood and isn’t too literal. Observe your own reading and buying habits. Study other covers in your genre with a similar tone.
Genre & tone dictate design.
More than the characters, a specific scene or the author’s personal tastes, it’s the genre and tone that dictate the colors, typestyles and imagery of a successful book cover. A great cover looks like it belongs with other bestsellers.

My contemporary cozy series had dismal numbers and never sold well. In fact, I'd given up writing the series even though I loved it. I couldn't justify the time. After Mariah Sinclair designed new custom covers for the series, the sales numbers tripled. That's right...TRIPLED. In fact, I recently put out a new book in the series and it's doing well. Mariah is incredibly professional and easy to work with and she comes up with the most beautiful covers.Shéa MacLeod, Author

I have a premade trilogy from Mariah. I can’t count how many people have said, “Those covers are AMAZING.” It’s almost gotten old—wait, no it hasn’t; I can't get enough of the compliments! They are incredibly eye catching and so great for the genre. Great covers sell books. I even got a BookBub Featured Deal on the first book in the series, and I think the cover played a huge role in that.Beth Norris Anderson, Author
