Professional Book Cover Design
Readers, retailers, and reviewers glance at a book for only a few seconds before they make a choice™. Make sure it’s your book they’re choosing.
Book Cover Express authors have been featured on/in: Good Morning America, Today, Oprah, Entertainment Tonight, 48-hours, People Magazine, L.A. Times, The Washington Post, and TV Guide. One of our self-published authors sold 900 copies of his book in 48 hours.
As a book cover designer, I know fiction and nonfiction book cover design are not the same thing, and that’s why your nonfiction project needs a professional book cover designer who knows the market. I started designing book covers in December of 1999, and since that time have worked on more than 2,000 projects. I’ve worked with all of the popular print-on-demand (POD) publishers and have created hundreds of book covers for Lightning Source, CreateSpace and Amazon’s e-book publishing programs. I provide clients with properly formatted covers, including barcodes (100% black, vector), not low-grade png images that won’t scan properly. I have worked with offset and POD press operations and know my way around a template, including technical information about things like “jump” and “hinges” and “240% black,” that can make all the difference when it comes to ensuring your book looks professional in the marketplace.

What People Are Saying
Our book was a best seller from the first day it came out. Thanks to Cathi, we had a cover that grabbed the readers’ attention and made them pick it up! Cathi’s work proves that you actually can judge a book by its cover. She was fantastic to work with, professional and reasonably priced. Book Cover Express is the company to work with if you want the very best.
— Keith Leon, best-selling author,Who Do You Think You Are? Discover the Purpose of Your Life
I hired Cathi Stevenson to do my book cover design and Gwen Gades to do my interior book layout design. Both women know all the ins and outs of producing files needed for both print and e-books. They each give 100% effort to get your book professionally presented to your readers. Even after they were both paid and completed their work, they each did a follow-up contact as to any further help needed. For me, that means they both cared and that I was completely satisfied. You can’t put a price on that. — Leonard Rattina, author of Accidental Ambassador
Book sellers always compliment us on the book cover design. The cover attracts customers. At the Miami Book Fair, people would walk across the aisle where their eye latched onto the books in our booth. This was the most valuable investment we made on our book and Cathi made it pay off. — R. Beaubien, author of Discovering South Beach Deco
I’ve worked with Cathi and her team for quite some time, and it has been a wonderful experience. Cathi and her team’s attention to detail and willingness to listen to my needs have been extraordinary. Their beautiful and eye-catching covers have captivated my readers and astounded me. I can’t thank them enough for their work and I highly recommend them.
