Our authors often come to us with cover ideas, photos, or illustrations/graphics for their book. We welcome such author input, and we enjoy taking these ideas and providing our own suggestions and creative options to end up with a unique book achieved through collaboration and co-creation. For each book, we present the author with 3-5 custom-designed cover concepts and interior design proposals from which to choose.
We have a basic price for providing a Custom Interior & Cover Design. This price will usually apply to a novel or memoir, and to many non-fiction books, as well. Books of poetry with illustrations, for example, will fall into the price range designated as Premium Interior & Cover Design , as will non-fiction books that include ‘extras,’ such as extensive graphics, endnotes, a bibliography, an index, etc.
The original and unique design graphics that are created for the book cover and interior are available for use by the author for various marketing purposes; for example, if the author chooses to purchase marketing materials, such as book markers, posters, or post cards.
For each book we publish, we collaborate with the author to create promotional copy that is used for a variety of purposes, such as on the back cover of the book, on our EWH Press website, on the author’s website (if he/she has one), and for press releases.
