Once you approve the cover, I will send you the final deliverables. This process from start to finish takes about two weeks generally, although it can be done faster if needed.
I ask to be credited on the credits page at the start of the book like this: Cover design by Donika Mishineva.
Once the first draft is approved, I will continue detailing. Depending on the project, I may reach out multiple times, or if it is fairly straightforward with no changes, I will simply detail it to completion.
Once I have the necessary photo material, I will work on the cover for a day or two and send you the cover ready at about 30%. I will send this to you for approval and you can make any changes at this point, or we can start from scratch if it isn’t working.
We will go through by email:
About your book: theme, plot, genre, symbolism, characters, scenes, environments.
Your ideas for the cover, if you have any.
Principles of cover design.
Brainstorm session & screen share.
I will sketch out the ideas we both have for the cover and we will discuss the pros and cons and decide on a direction together.
Finding the right photos
Details such as the scene, weapons, characters' clothing are often found free of charge for commercial use on sites such as Pixabay or DeviantArt. Persons, on the other hand, in most cases have to be bought by the author additionally, with the price varying depending on the circulation of the book. For a small print run, prices are around $ 8-10 to purchase a commercial use license for each photo. Some complex objects are also difficult to find with free-for-commercial use (such as 7-head hydra). Together, we search the appropriate photos on the Internet and comment on what would work for your book cover. It takes sometimes a week, and sometimes a few days.
