Ebook Cover and Formatting

This package is for Ebook cover design and formatting. If you would like to include the paperback cover and formatting as well, please visit this page.

Formatting is perhaps the most undervalued facet of book publishing. Without good formatting a text becomes uncomfortable to read, or, in the case of eBooks, often unable to be read. Let our design and formatting experts bring your fictional tale to life with a stunning cover, and ensure that it is formatted correctly for use on Kindle, Nook, iPad and more (non-fiction formatting is available for an extra charge).

The Damonza eBook Cover and Formatting Package: $659**

The package includes:

  •         A minimum of 2 eBook cover design drafts, based on your specifications
  •         Unlimited changes (within reason) to one of those eBook cover drafts until you’re 100% happy, or we’ll design new drafts!
  •         A 3D rendering of your cover for marketing and promotion
  •         A high resolution JPEG ready to upload

Excludes Character Creation – If your Ebook cover requires a particular type of person or group of people there will be an additional cost to create these characters, based on the complexity. This usually starts at $200, and a separate quote will be provided for this service. If you would like a cost on this aspect before submitting your full brief and paying a deposit, please e-mail us. PLEASE NOTE: This is not recommended. Simpler book covers with more abstract concepts are ALWAYS better.
All the above from $659**

A 50% deposit is required in advance, with the balance to be paid on final approval. Please complete the credit card details at the end of the order form.

You will receive 2 different cover design drafts to choose from within 14 days. You can make changes to one of those drafts and if you don’t happen to be taken by either option, we’ll design a new one for you with your guidance. It’s all about getting you the cover of your dreams. All packages include unlimited changes (within reason) and a 100% money-back guarantee if we can’t get it right. The first draft of your formatting will also be completed within 14 days.

If you require images to be placed within your book we charge $2 per image placement per format. Table creation and text boxes/sidebars are charged at $4 per table per format. This may be charged on a balance invoice once the final image, table and/or text box count is done.  

IMPORTANT:As with character creation, we strongly recommend NOT attempting to convey a specific scene from the book on its cover. A potential reader will typically skim over your cover, looking at it for just 2 seconds before deciding whether or not to investigate further. Couple this with the fact that your cover will be displayed in thumbnail size online, and it’s obvious that depicting a scene will overcomplicate things. At Damonza we want your book to be read. The first step is to create a cover that grabs a reader’s attention, and this is best done through simplicity. For more information and advice on covers that sell, please click here (opens in a separate window).

Allow our team to create a cover that does your book justice. We know what sells and what looks good, and we have a talent in condensing your story down to a design that best showcases it. Our previous successes speak for themselves, and we’d love to set your book on that very same path.
