Announcement    **Regarding custom covers: Due to time constraints, I am currently unable to take on custom projects from new/prospective clients. Apologies in advance for delays on my end—based on my current workload, it will likely take me a few days to get back to you!**

Hey there! I offer pre-made and custom book covers (including paperback spread upgrades) in addition to book cover makeovers, promotional materials and blog design services. If you don't see a specific service listed, send me a message—I would love to hear your ideas!

A heads up: If a design's listing disappears here on Etsy, it means someone purchased the design through my personal website. (All designs are cross-listed between my site and Etsy and are first come, first served.)

» Interested in seeing some behind-the-scenes action? Check out my "Making of" series for the pre-made covers listed here on blog.katmellon.com.

Hey there! Thanks for checking out my Etsy shop. :-)

CUSTOM eBOOK COVERS (NEW CLIENTS): I am temporarily unable to accept brand-new clients for custom eBook cover design services.

CUSTOM eBOOK COVERS (ESTABLISHED CLIENTS): Send me a private message!

PRE-MADE BOOK COVERS: There is no additional charge to replace the title and author text with your information or to resize the cover as needed. Should the length of your title be substantially longer or shorter than the title that's currently in use, I offer $26/hr revision time to cover all necessary modifications. This same $26 fee is also applicable for other significant changes to fonts, text/hair/eye/etc color. You will receive a high-resolution digital JPG of your new book cover within 1-3 days. Please allow 1-3 additional days for paid revisions ($26/hr). Each of my pre-made covers are sold only once, so get 'er before she's gone! **Note: I can almost always design additional covers to match an existing pre-made design.**

PAPERBACK SPREADS: Spines/back cover add-ons begin at just $26 for a simple design and $56 for a complex design. Read more about it here! https://www.etsy.com/listing/191403463/paperback-spread-upgrade-spine-back

CHECKOUT: I'll be happy set up an all-inclusive custom listing just for you if you're purchasing multiple services at once—just ask! If you'd prefer to purchase these items individually, you can also add them to your cart via the following listings:

• Paperback Spread Upgrade: https://www.etsy.com/listing/191403463/pre-made-ebook-add-on-upgrade-to-a-full — Please specify 'Simple' or 'Complex' in the drop-down menu
• Revisions Add-On (Per Hour): https://www.etsy.com/listing/191489378/additional-cover-revisions

You can purchase add-ons at any time. (For example, you could come back six months from now and upgrade to a paperback cover—no need to commit before you're ready!)

Additional policies and FAQs
BOOK COVERS: In addition to its intended use as your book's cover, you can use the cover (exactly as it was designed) on promotional materials (bookmarks, postcards, etc), but you may not be able to sell products bearing just the artwork/book cover by itself (i.e. the book cover cannot constitute the main value of the item itself; printed as-is on t-shirts, mugs, and the like for example) depending on the licensing restrictions of images used in your design. Please message me if you have any licensing restriction questions about a specific design!

BLOG DESIGNS: Please refer to each individual listing's Terms of Use.

Frequently asked questions
What is your current turnaround time?

My current turnaround time is 1-2 days for pre-made designs and 3-5 days for initial custom designs.

Are you currently available for custom book cover designs?

I am able to take on only a small number of custom projects for prospective, first-time clients due to time constraints, and with an unorthodox approach: I'll create a design based on your description—if you like it and want to purchase it, that's great; if it's not what you were looking for, I can list it as a pre-made cover and you're under no obligation to purchase the design. Please message me with your description if you're interested in a custom cover!

Am I required to credit you for my book cover/blog design?

While a credit line on your Copyright page (ex: Cover Design by KM Writing & Design » kmwritingdesign.com) would be greatly appreciated, it is not required!

* Although you aren't required to credit me as your cover designer, you can't credit someone who isn't me for creating the design, nor can you claim that you own any of the elements or images that went into the design (unless you did indeed provided the image to me and either own the image or have secured ownership of that image). *
