Lola Divine Under Cover Design

Crafting book covers with style

How I work:


I create composite images from photographs and/or graphics purchased from stock photo websites. Sometimes, it helps speed up the process if the author strolls through these sites to find images they like. The author then sends me the ID numbers of the images, along with the name of the site that they came from.

These are the stock photo sites I use most: Dollarphotoclub.com  Dreamstime.com Shutterstock.com Arcangel and 123RF.com

Authors are a busy bunch, though, so if your schedule doesn't allow for regular sleep, much less spare time to scan pages of images (no matter how hot the cover model) it's my job to surf these websites and find the perfect images for you!

 After I purchase royalty free images I combine them artfully without the use of standard templates. I add the title, subtitle, tagline, author’s name, and spine, back cover blurb and even unique logo if applicable as well. In this way, you the author, gets an original and compelling cover that will draw readers in by conveying the concept and tone of the book at first glance.

Authors can send synopsis to help me visualize and then execute the relevant theme, genre, world, characters, and in the case of non-fiction, topic. Is your novel or short story a romance, thriller, mystery, paranormal, fantasy, suspense, women's fiction, chic-lit, young adult, new adult, comedy, dystopian, historical, cozy, erotic, sci-fi...did I leave anything out? If so, I apologize.

But, regardless of the type of work you send me, I've got it covered. And I LOVE my job, so designing your dream cover is my goal in life.

I work as quickly as possible, often nights and weekends to complete a commission. I have completed covers in as little as two hours and as many as fourteen hours over the course of two or three days.

I will be sending you drafts of the cover as we go along and will make changes when necessary. Please remember, this is your cover in the end. This represents you and your hard work, so be honest and let me know what you think and feel about the drafts.

I want you to be thrilled with the end result.

It is not necessary, but if you would like to give me credit for your cover art, I would appreciate it.

Print Cover Art
The main difference between eBook cover graphics and print cover graphics is the file size/resolution. Normally, eBook covers are only used on the web, so they can be created at 72 dpi. However, when designing a cover for print-on-demand publishers, the cover has to be created at 300 dpi; high resolution, to get a quality print on the cover of the book.


The product you end up with will be a full size .jpg and/or a pdf. You will know beforehand what you need if you have decided on a self-publishing site to publish your book. I will need the exact dimensions of the finished product including the spine in order for it to print correctly. Most POD publishers supply cover artists with a template which is built after they know the dimensions of your book and the number of pages in the finished product.
