Need an AWESOME Book Cover for your Latest Book?

With over 20+ years’ experience, working at the top of the Marketing and Advertising industry — including providing graphic design and promotional services to some of London Theatreland’s most popular and iconic theatrical productions, and top publishers — Team Bookzio is putting together a Book Cover Design Service that is going to blow you away in terms of quality, price and service!

It’s TRUE — Readers DO Judge your book by its Cover!

We all know what a good book cover looks like — they’re easy to recognize, they usually have 5 stars and 1,000+ great reviews next to them on their Amazon page!

Creating one is not so easy…

Recognizing a great designer and knowing how to get the best out of them isn’t so easy, either…

Getting the right price. I mean, NOT handing over the deeds to the farm. Can also be tough…

You thought writing was difficult. Until you had to get a Book Cover designed!

Ideally, what you need is a friend who knows their way around the book market. Someone well-versed in the book promotion world. Someone who knows all the subtle differences between genres and how best to differentiate one from another in a highly saturated marketplace…

But, above all, someone who knows and understands designers. Someone who can:

N

1. Identify the best designer for your book

It’s not always obvious who is the best designer for your book. You might see a great portfolio of work and think — wow, this is exactly what I want — then, 2 months later you get something that, well, doesn’t look anything like any of the work in the portfolio.

Yes, it’s scandalous but true, designers often have portfolios full of ‘other people’s work!’ 

N

2. Know how to get the job done!

And even if you are lucky enough to select a great designer, how do you get the best work out of them? You say ‘tomato’ and the designer thinks you mean ‘apples’… or something like that. In any case, even great designers get the wrong end of the stick sometimes. And it’s often the client (YOU) who inadvertently hands them the stick the wrong way around!

Getting a design brief right is an art. There are professionals in the world who specialize in it! They are called ‘project managers’. Some are called ‘account handlers’. And others are simply called ‘Philip’ (that’s me, by the way).

I guess I’ve probably made my point.

And if you’re reading this, then you may well agree with me. Or else, you’re simply looking for a low-priced, high quality book cover design service, with a reliable, professional (and nice) team…

So here it is…

Bookzio Book Cover Design Service

I’ve decided that with the popularity of our (NEW) Book Trailer Video creation service. Bookzio should really be providing the same kind of low-priced, great value, professionally finished, Book Cover design service to our authors.

Why Bookzio?

Well, for a start there are A TON OF BONUSES!

Because not only are we all dedicated Book Lovers, book marketers, book promoters and simply swimming in every manner of books on a daily basis. But we have the technical expertise, and facilities, too.

For example, I’m a trained graphic designer. I spent 4 years at art school after leaving high school and have worked for over 20+ years as a graphic designer, art director and copywriter, for top agencies in the advertising and marketing industries. I’ve done book (and magazine) designs. At one time (for about 3 years actually) I was senior designer for an agency that created the graphics for EVERY West End Theatre production in London. And I mean ALL of them! I worked on graphics for Miss Saigon, Saturday Night Fever, Dr Dolittle, Starlight Express, Cats, Les Miserable... I even did the graphics for the original play Closer which became a film, and Copenhagen. Just to name a few.

So, you see, who better to handle your design work than someone who Andrew Lloyd Webber and Cameron Mackintosh used?

But I’m not proposing to do it all myself. What I’ve done is reached out to a range of talented and very capable graphic designers who are already working on book covers — and asked them if they would like to on a freelance basis for Bookzio.

They said yes —  because, and they may not tell you this, many of them find it difficult working with clients directly!

When you order a book cover design, I will personally work with you to ensure your brief will get you exactly what you are looking for, and I will coordinate with the designer to ensure they deliver what’s required.

Together, we’ll ensure you get a GREAT BOOK COVER DESIGN!

We’ll agree milestones and deliverables, and ensure your book cover arrives on time. And I will coordinate it all.

NEED SOMETHING MORE? Take a look below at just a few of the BONUSES and added extras you’ll get with this service. MORE TO COME!
