Cover Design

A great cover design is your book's first marketing effort. A book really is judged by its cover since they haven't bought it yet to go home and read your works. The back cover descriptive elements should accurately represent the quality manuscript inside and close the retail sale. 

You will want us to polish your visual concept so that the book will look equal to others on the store shelf. At this final step (which is separate from page formatting) we can't risk it appearing like something you just did yourself. Let us add all the unique elements that make a book look like a book.

A beautiful cover created under Wise Publications' art direction will make your publishing project successful and more profitable.

What do I need to prepare for the cover?

You are required to prepare your manuscript for publishing,
 this includes several hours of work on a new, fresh design of your creative vision. It will contain all required elements suitable to the book genre.
Copywriting of blurbs as needed and integration of photos and illustrations you submit. Multiple online revisions till you're satisfied.
Final copyright is assigned to the author as work-for-hire. 

Additional Costs 

  • Stock Photo Acquisition

  • We collaborate with many artists

  • if a specific topic illustration is requested

  • In-house Studio Photography

Evaluating your cover design is always free.

How important is cover design?

Readers really do judge a book by its cover, usually in seconds. Then they flip it over and skim the back – we all do. Good custom designs by Wise Publications grab attention & sell more copies. Smart, marketable design concepts will give your book its greatest chance of success and advance your writing career.

Do-it-yourself templates look clunky and internet design sites charge a fortune. Our model is to receive a reasonable labor fee for our professional book cover designers and provide authors with attentive personal customer service. You get to talk with the real people who actually produce your book – we like it that way.
