My name is Rob Williams and I am the founder of Ilovemycover.com. I wanted to write a post about how an amazing design can really add life to your writings, whether it's something that you just finished writing, or a book that has been published for years now. As an independent graphic designer I love getting the chance to put a face on someone's writing. Because a cover is almost always the first point of contact with a buyer and you want to make sure that it is professional and eye catching.
Over the past 13+ years I have worked with a vast number of authors both independent and professionals, during this time as a designer I have learned what it takes to make a truly eye catching cover. My biggest point of emphasis with ILMC is that our covers are a truly collaborative process. We want the work we do to reflect the hours you have put into your book and have the cover truly represent your story. Too many times we see people spend years writing a book to then just slap a cheap five dollar cover on, or buy a template from a website. Your cover is worth more than that to us.
Next to the actual writing in your book the cover is the most important part and maybe even more so. I have seen books that have been written brilliantly, but then have a dreadful cover and as you can guess this always results in dreadful sales.
So if you have a cover currently, or are in need of one, let us know :)
