I like your work but I have not found what I am looking for?


If you enjoy my work but have not found exactly what you are looking in my premade cover section you can hire me to create a cover for you. (e-book & printed).

What is the process?

The client will need to contact me and let me know what package he/she is interested in

If necessary I will ask questions and request more information. The client will need to fill in the order form linked below. Please include all relevant information such as the deadline, genre, title, pen name, colour preferences and a summary of what kind of scene she/he would like portrayed. Please also include if this will be a standalone project or a series. Please keep in mind that your brief should be very clear.


If you agree to continue we may schedule a date. I will contact you when your appointment date arrives and ask all relevant questions. We will collaborate and brainstorm together. If you would like specific stock, I will need the links. You will receive the first draft within a day or two. This is a rough mockup of the idea which does not include any blending or purchased stocks. You decide if it is going to work for you and once you confirm I will send an invoice via PayPal with the deposit ($50) to be paid from the full amount for the book cover work.

 

I will then license the stocks we agreed upon and compose the artwork, blend, paint and add the finishing touches, etc. Once you are happy with the final, payment has to be made in full, before I will send through all the necessary files. Please note, I do not send the PSD files.

 

My turn around time is about a week depending on the artwork.


All the information that you share is considered confidential.

What payment method do you offer?

Payments can be made through PayPal.

What genre are you proficient in?

I mostly do all sub-genre's of fantasy, but I am not limited to these themes. I have done works for other genres such as paranormal, apocalyptic, sci-fi, romance, etc.

What is a custom premade?

A custom premade is a cover designed based on your genre, you let me know what kind of cover you want I will create a design based off of your idea. If you do not like the outcome, and decide that you do not want the item I will then add the design to my premade shop. I do not allow changes to custom premades.

Do you do series continuations?

Yes I do. If you purchased a premade cover and need another book cover in the series the price of Ebook is $250.

(Please note, not all stocks have series potential with the same model.)

Do I own the rights to the stock images and completed artwork?

My package includes exclusive rights to the final cover. However, the copyright of the art remains with Tairelei. All stock imagery belongs to the third party stock holder.

What stock do you use?

Licensed material from DepositPhotos. For premades I use purchased stock from render artists and in rare on some of my old premades I use unrestricted and or purchased stock from deviant art where an artist allows stock to be used for commercial purposes. In these cases I have obtained explicit permission to use stock from these artists. Each site and stock provider has its rules for use in printed books and e-book covers.

Do I have to buy the stock images?

I mainly use DepositPhotos, if you want to use stock from another stock website, premium stock from independent sources then yes. You will have to purchase a high resolution version of the image you want incorporated and email it to me. I do not use images from Pixabay/Unsplash etc, as these are not legitimate stock sites. If you have your own high quality professional photos that you would like to incorporate you will need to send a signed release form stating that it is your own work and you have given me permission to use it within your cover design.

What happens when my book that features stock receives over 500 000 impressions?

When this happens you will need to purchase an extended license from the stock site.
