BEAUTIFUL PRE-MADE EBOOK COVERS FROM THE COVER COLLECTION - Guest Post



Note from Suzanne: I met Debbie, from TheCoverCollection.com, one evening when I was wandering the Internet looking at pre-made book covers. As I've mentioned before, pre-made book covers can be amateurish and inexpensive, or beautifully professional and very expensive. Rarely do price and professionalism intersect in a good way. Which is why I was so surprised when I found The Cover Collection and the incredible gallery of pre-made book covers Debbie has created, and their very reasonable price. 


Debbie created the new cover for Mrs. Tuesday's Departure and a cover for Trusting God with Your Dream. I've asked Debbie to do a guest post today so that I can share more about her approach to creating beautiful book covers. By the way, not only does she offer beautiful pre-made book covers, her customer service is unmatched, she isn't happy until you're completely satisfied with the end-result.



The Cover Collection website opened in July of this year, and I quickly realized there's a huge stigma attached to pre-made ebook covers. People assume that they’re amateurish and poorly made,  but there are actually some great pre-made covers out there! 


I design for  thrillers, sci-fi, horror, romance and children's books. Here are some examples from each of the genres.









I always send customers multiple draft options to choose from. They may spot something on one of the drafts that I didn't include on the original design. If they like it, I'll edit it in. I prefer to work this way as it gives people more choice, and ultimately a cover that works for them. I don't ever want someone to "make do" with a design. I want them to love it! 


I offer unlimited revisions on all my ebook covers. I don't want someone to purchase a cover and because they're only allowed 3 or 4 revisions, they end up with a design that's not quite right for them. There are no additional charges, and you only receive your final design when you're 100% happy with it.  Once all design concepts have been agreed, I usually have the completed cover back to you the same day.


There are currently around 300 ebook covers on the website, and new ones are added every few days. Here are some of the latest designs:








CHOOSING A BOOK COVER DESIGNER

A lot of authors tell me it's hard to pick a cover designer, as there are so many to choose from. If you're undecided about which one to use, it helps to find out more about them. Don't just take their word for it (and that includes me!)


  • See what other people are saying about them on Twitter, Facebook, forums, blog posts etc.
  • Ask to see links to other work they've produced.
  • Contact other people who've dealt with them to ask about their experience.


Once you've checked out a few different designers, you should have a better idea as to whether they're the type of person you could work with. Don't ever take anyone at face value. Your book cover is too important to leave things to chance.


RECENT ADDITIONS
I've recently introduced the option of a 3D graphic for your cover. It  can help an author’s book to stand out during promotions or when featuring the novel on their website or blog.




3D BANNER PIC

In the next few days I'll be introducing a page on the website which will feature covers I've recently designed for customers, and a link to where their book can be purchased.  It's just my way of saying thanks for choosing me for your cover and to help to promote the author's work.

If you'd like to know more about me or want to know when new cover designs are added, the best way is to follow me on Twitter or Facebook. I usually post new designs there when they're uploaded. Alternatively you can sign up for the Newsletter via the website.

Women are Highly Esteemed in the Eyes of This Man

I enter the sanctuary of Our Lady of Peace Church and my eyes adjust to the dimmed lights as the only illumination comes from candles on the altar and their glowing reflection in the monstrance holding the Blessed Sacrament.
My friend and I had come to join the Mary and Martha’s quarterly meeting which started with an hour of Adoration.
I took my seat in one of the pews, knelt, and surreptitiously glanced around the sanctuary. In the gloaming, I could see thirty other women kneeling like sentinels in silent prayer. 
Over the course of the hour, we would remain in contemplative silence.
As I slipped in and out of my prayers and wandering thoughts, I considered how pleased God must be when he sees us gathered in the simple and divine act of Adoration.
But in fact, women are highly esteemed in God’s sight not matter where we are. 
We only look at the life of Jesus Christ to understand how dearly he cherishes every woman.
In the Gospel of Saint John, a group of men bring a woman caught i…

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a growing emptiness in my heart. A void, as if something is missing. It’s not psychological. Not physical. After doing an internal check, I determined it’s a spiritual void that I’m experiencing.
No, I’m not doubting God, his existence or goodness. I have full confidence in…

If you are tired of the guilt trip you usually feel at church, here’s a different perspective

I am counting the days until I fly to Fort Lauderdale to see Mom for Christmas. Yes, I speak with her every day, sometimes twice a day. But as you know, phone calls just aren’t the same as being with someone you love. I look forward to seeing Mom’s smile, to holding her hand, to going for a drive along the beach with her. Spending time in the presence of someone we love enriches our relationship with them.
I believe the love I feel for Mom, is a sliver of what God feels for each of us. I believe God longs to share that love with us. Which is why we are called to spend time in God’s presence daily. We experience God’s presence when we meet him in our prayers, in church, and hopefully in one another. If I could make one wish for each of us, it would be that at some point during the next four weeks of Advent we would experience how much Jesus loves us.



The Best Christmas

During my morning devotions, I read these two verses of Psalm 117:
Praise theLord,all you nations;
extol him, all you peop…
