50% INITIAL DEPOSIT

I will issue you two invoices. One for a

50% deposit when we start working on the cover and one invoice for the balance before I send you the final files.  Financial transactions can be made through PayPal or TransferWise.

DISCUSSION

2

We will communicate by email.

  • Send me an excerpt from your book to feel the mood in the story and the description of the main characters

  • Tell me about the theme, plot, genre, symbolism, characters, scenes, environments. Everything you think I need to make you the perfect cover

  • I will offer you my point of view and you will decide whether you want it or to think of something more appropriate.

 

  • We will discuss the pros and cons and you will choose what to be the final concept.

FINDING THE RIGHT IMAGES

4

Details such as the scene, weapons, characters' clothing are often found free of charge for commercial use on sites such as Pixabay. Persons, 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 (up to 500,000 times across all formats.), prices are around $10-30 to purchase a commercial use license for each character's photo. Some complex objects are also difficult to find with free-for-commercial use (such as 7-head hydra or spacecraft, for example).

 

I'll search for the appropriate photos on the stock image banks and comment on what would work for your book cover. Finding the right images takes about 2-3 days, sometimes more, when several projects overlap at the same time.

FIRST DRAFT

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 70%. 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.

5

SECOND DRAFT

6

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. 

FINAL

7

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.

Reach out through my contact page or email me directly at artofdonika@gmail.com. I will get back to you within 24 hours and we will go over any question you might have. I am happy to work with first time writers, so don’t worry about asking any kind of question. I am happy to help you through the process.

Amazon Hitchhiker by Alycin Hayes.jpg

Donika Mishineva designed the book cover and maps for my new book AMAZON HITCHHIKER A Woman's Adventures from Canada to Brazil.  

 

Not only is Donika creatively talented, she is also a wonderful artist with whom to collaborate. She is a patient, intuitive perfectionist who truly listened to what I wanted in my book cover. At the same time she shared her own brilliant ideas to create a book cover that is not only beautiful, but also inviting and intriguing to potential readers.    

 

I highly recommend Donika for any design work and look forward to working with her again in the future.
