Book Cover Design for Christian Nonfiction Authors

Never put a good book behind a bad cover.

If you've written a great book that needs to be read by as many people as possible, don't put all your hard work behind a cover that sells you and your message short. The right cover will help you attract readers and communicate to them that your book is worth their time, attention, and money.

Unfortunately, the self-publishing industry has seen more than enough bad cover design. But it doesn't have to be that way for your book. My specialty is Christian nonfiction, and my desire is to give every author I work with a high-quality cover that makes a great impression in the marketplace.

You might not have a big-time book deal (yet), but that's no reason to settle for a third-rate cover. You can see samples of my work in my portfolio, or scroll down to check out my design packages.

My Very Simple Money-Back Guarantee

My goal is to create a cover for your book that you'll love. If I fail to do so, you can claim a 100% refund. No hassle, no complicated process. If you're not delighted, you don't have to pay. Simple.

*A round of revisions can include multiple changes as long as you let me know about all of them at the same time. (For example, one round could include changing the font of the title, and tweaking the color scheme.) The Bronze package includes two rounds of revisions on the front cover and one on the back and spine. The Silver package includes three rounds of revisions on the front cover and two on the back and spine. The Gold package includes seven rounds of revisions on the front cover and three on the back and spine.

+I use existing templates to create 3D renders of book covers. Because of this, I cannot guarantee that your 3D render will be an exact representation of your physical book. Dimensions and thickness may not exactly match your completed book. If I do not have a template that reasonably matches your book (e.g., your book is an unusual size), I may be unable to provide a 3D render.

I just completed working with Jonathan on the front cover of my book. He took my vision and created something beautiful. He was straightforward to work with on this project. The reactions and responses to my new cover have been fantastic! . . . Thank you, Jonathan.

Pat Fenner

Jonathan provided quick service and an awesome cover. Very open to feedback, and e-ZEE to work with! Reasonably priced, too. Both thumbs up!

Paul Bartelme

Jonathan did such a fantastic job on my book cover. I couldn't be happier. He responded to my email inquiries in a timely fashion and was attentive to my needs. Hire him. You won't be disappointed!

 

Why Does Cover Design Matter?

After all, shouldn't people judge my book on its merits instead of on what the cover looks like?

We might like to think that people will judge our work on its merits rather than on external appearances, but let's be honest: we all judge things by the outside, at least sometimes.

Think of it this way: have you ever arrived at a hotel at the end of a long day of travel, taken one look at the outside, and wondered if you should actually stay there?

We all make judgments based first impressions. Your readers do, too. And your book cover is very much like the outside of that hotel.

If it's done well, it can be attractive and inviting . . .

But if it's done wrong, it can make people wonder if the inside is going to be as bad as the outside.

Why take the chance that your readers will be willing to overlook a bad exterior in order to get to the good stuff inside? Why not show them at their first glance that your book is worth their time, attention, and money?

 

That's what professional cover design is all about—gaining attention and helping move readers from the outside to the inside. If your cover fails at that task, you may not get a second chance.

My goal is to create book covers that look great and have appeal in the marketplace. If that's what you're looking for, check out my design packages above or see my work for yourself in my portfolio.
