If you have any questions, we'll answer them. We'll ask you about your book, and about the kind of covers you like. If you have any ideas, or images you want to use, we'll discuss how they could work. For print, we'll talk about the size that will work best for you.
Once we have a good idea of what you want, we'll agree on an initial design. This might be a detailed plan, or you may decide to give us more flexibility to come up with a draft based on a looser plan.
We'll let you know how long it will take, but it's usually within a week. If we have choices to make we'll discuss them with you, and if it helps we'll share ideas with you throughout. At the end we'll send you a cover that's almost ready to publish.
We want you to love your cover, so we'll discuss any changes you want and will tweak and revise the cover till you're happy. We'll then give it a final polish and send you the files you need to publish.
