I have twice commissioned Laura for cover graphics design and interior manuscript design and formatting. She has a keen design sense for knowing what you want and what is needed. I was made to feel that I was her only client. In both projects Laura went above and beyond what I asked her to do to make certain the task at hand was perfect. Once I sought her advice about whether I should have a glossy cover or matte finish. She provided a thoughtful and detailed rational on the benefits and shortfalls of each kind of cover. I never knew how important a book cover's finish can be in helping sales. Laura's fees are very competitive and worth every dime. She'll be working on my third project in three month's time. I can't wait! Finally, if you don't know what this *G* means, Laura has one all the time. Ask her. Then book her.

I hardily recommend Laura Shinn Designs for professionally-prepared covers for your ebooks or for any graphic designs that you might need.

Laura is professional, patient, kind, and very helpful with her suggestions. I was uncertain what to expect when I started looking for someone to design my ebook covers, but I was sold on Laura right from the start, with her first contact.

Do not spend days designing your own covers, just let Laura do it; I cannot honestly see how she can prepare the covers for the price she charges. She is worth every dime.

Due to a system crash, I lost most of the cover designs, but am working to redesign them and upload ASAP! Please...check back soon!!

This is a new venture I'm very excited to introduce! Unique, Pre-Designed Ebook Covers! I can also design the print cover for an additional fee. I've tried to keep the pricing competitive ($15.00 - $40.00). I'll add your text to the cover once it's been purchased through Paypal. I can make ONE change to the text on the cover, whether it be author's name or the title. Font styles, text coloring and text location will remain as seen in the cover mock-ups. Sizing adjustments for text can be done in some cases as an exception for a particularly long name or title.

All covers are in the Industry Standard 6" x 9" sizing and final covers will be saved in 300 dpi, JPG extension. All images featured on the covers are in full resolution, most from a stock photo site or in the public domain. The stock photo image license includes ebook and print cover creation, but does not include the cover being used on merchandise (like pens, mouse pads, or any merchandise for sale). You can, however, use it on free items, like bookmarks or brochures.

If you'd like to purchase one of my Pre-Designed Covers, simply make note of the category (genre) it's under and the image ID number. Send me an email with the author name(s) you want on the cover and the book title (including series title, book number, tagline, etc). Once I've sold you the cover, it will be removed from the gallery below, making it unique and especially just for you.

{If you don't find a cover you like below, I also offer custom-made designs. Be aware this is a longer process than purchasing one of the pre-designed covers.}
