David Flin | 12 comments Many thanks. Authors and manuscripts I'm currently fine on - my production schedule is full until June 2021.

My bottleneck lies in cover artists. Rates of pay are essentially nominal, and I'm preferentially using students at or about to go to University, on the basis that this gives them something for their portfolio - professional work - along with the confidence in being able to do it.

My cash flow at present means that cover artists would be doing it for the experience and the exposure, with the remuneration being a secondary aspect. Much as I would like to pay vast sums to some pretty talented people, well, it's a business and I need to make some money out of this as well.

Try this site, they don't charge big bucks and you can get cheap covers from there. I get mine from these and don't pay much for them. They're quality designs. I hope that helps and good luck!

David Flin | 12 comments Thanks for that. As I say, I'm preferentially using people starting a career, or students, to help them gather a portfolio. I'll certainly bear this in mind as a reserve option for when deadlines are looming.

Shalu Gupta | 17 comments $70-$130 per cover. Does it fall within your budget?


message 7: by David (new)

David Flin | 12 comments It's just about within budget. As I said above, I'm preferentially using people starting a career, or students, to help them gather a portfolio.

I've made a note of the contact.
