Create an eBook cover for Kindle


35 per hour Virtual OK

I will design an original eBook cover for your book using stock images and fonts that I either already own or that are licensed under creative commons. Once you tell me about your book (description, genre, and main themes) I will make three low-resolution mockups for you to choose from. From there, we will work together to tweak the cover into a final image that you are satisfied with and then I will send you a high-resolution file that you can upload to any self-publishing ebook platform.

(Note that I offer additional cover design (custom print covers, for example) and book formatting services outside of Simbi, but that's my bread and butter, so I cannot afford to offer those services here. If you are curious about those services please ask.)

Training & Qualifications

I have been designing and selling ebook (and print) covers for three years outside of simbi. It's a part of my day to day work, but it's so different from most everything else that I do, that I find it really refreshing and fun. When I am between books, or my latest novel is with my editor, bringing someone else's book to life helps me reset. I don't have a degree or certification in graphic design, I have learned through trial and error and many an hour spent following youtube demos. Nevertheless, people I have never met before continue to hire me to create covers for their books, which continues to surprise and delight me. :-)

Availability & Preferences

My schedule is fairly flexible my turnaround times can be quite quick depending on your response times to questions.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Virginia McClain

I'm a full-time author, who also freelances as a graphic designer and translator to help pay the bills. In my free time, I love to read, play with my daughter and my dog, and take any excuse to play o...utside. In particular, I love to rock climb, backpack, and trail run. I also crochet and make miniature sculptures with polymer clays. Ok, to be honest, I have a ton of creative hobbies that I practice so infrequently as to be barely worth mentioning, but let's summarize by calling me crafty and leave it at that. I've lived in five countries around the world, and seven states within the US. I currently reside in Winnipeg, MB (which is in Canada). show more
