Finding a Book Cover

Everything is so Minnesota today. We went from 70 to 30s today and the first thing I saw when I walked outside were snowflakes. You read that right, snow flurries on Monday. Yuck! I took my morning walk to get the blood flowing and I started to think about my to-do list. I realized I left out an important resource for those self publishing out there.

Many aspiring authors out there might be on a tight budget in the beginning.  I also know other independent writers who like to watch their finances.  I’m here to help.  One of my go to resources for book covers of all genres is at Artists, designers, and writers merge on this platform.  You find real photos, illustrated, traditional, and modern covers.  The best part is you don’t have to sell a body part.  You will find many pleasing book covers at various prices.  Many are around $75 dollars.  The site allows you to modify the text before you’re final download.

This site started in 2012 and was created for indie authors who had trouble finding books cover artists or couldn’t afford the prices of the large publishers’ resources.  SelfPubBookCovers was build in favor of the writer because they offer free, unlimited, typographical cover changes.  Once a purchase is made, the book cover is downloaded to you and the cover is removed from their shelf so that it can’t be used again.  That’s right, you own the cover once you make the purchase.

For those authors who struggle to find a book cover, then this may be your new resource.  Again you can find this site at  You will need to create a login and password. 

Follow as I post on my progress throughout the month and share the experience.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
