While I have not personally used any of these services, they came highly recommended to me while I was searching for book cover designers:
- GoOnWrite.com: If you’re on a really tight budget but you need reasonable quality.
- The Book Cover Designer: If you have a lot of patience to sort through thousands of covers in a marketplace.
- Book Cover Zone: A more affordable alternative to Damonza.
Whoever you go with, I highly recommend getting yourself a free copy of Derek Murphy’s “Cover Design Secrets” to familiarize yourself with the basic principles of good cover design.
