Using Fiverr for your ebook covers?

By on March 31, 2015

I love Fiverr.com because I can get someone else to make covers for my books. No more Photoshop or Pixelmator headaches, just someone who knows what they’re doing.

For example, I just published a book of stories called A Scamp, A Scalawag, And A Patsy: Daniel Buys A Horse And Other Stories. (It’s free in the Kindle Store March 31 through April 2.) I went through a few thousand horse illustrations and pictures on Dollar Photo Club before I finally realized that the equestrian traffic icon was simple and eyecatching.

There I stumbled. What kind of background? What color? What font sizes? I experimented, but I didn’t like anything that I came up with.

So I went to Fiverr.com, specifically pro_ebookcovers, who had previously made the cover for my book Step-By-Step Kindle Advertising: Best Auction Bid and Targeting Tactics to Sell Your KDP Books Using Amazon Ads. She did a great job on that book, so I thought I’d give her a try on Scamp (my shortcut name for “A Scamp, A Scalawag…” you get it). As of today, she had over 11,000 five-star reviews from customers.

Well, as you can see from the accompanying image for this post, she did a fantastic job on the cover of Scamp. And it only cost me the one dollar for the image from Dollar Photo Club and the $5.50 for pro_ebookcovers.

BTW, the links to pro_ebookcovers are not affiliate links. I’m just directing you to an excellent resource that has saved me much time and effort.
