An outstanding cover is essential to your book’s success.

In the instant it takes for a reader to make a purchasing decision, the cover must communicate that your book will entertain, answer questions and help the reader — better than any other book on the shelf.

Don’t cut corners on cover design; make sure your book’s cover says, “Forget about the others — open ME!”

1106 Design has got you covered with five options for outstanding cover design to fit your budget. We know you’re anxious to start selling your book, so we’ll begin right away; your job will not be buried in an impersonal “queue.”  You’ll be admiring your initial cover concepts in 7 — 10 working days (plus a few days of research time for our top level).  Click on the “+” for details and pricing.

1. Cover Design with Market Research and Analysis

Give your book an edge over your competition with a cover that is current with the bestselling books in your genre. Our expert book distributor will review your manuscript and, with the assistance of book buyers at Barnes & Noble, will identify strong market matches that are bestsellers in your genre. She’ll get insider information on upcoming titles from major publishers, including what sells, what doesn’t, and what your cover must do to measure up. After this research process is complete, you will participate in a collaborative phone and web session to go over the market research results. By the end of this session, you will have three distinct design directions for your cover—a clear road map for the design process to follow, when we’ll create three front cover concepts for you to choose from.

This option includes:

  • Market research and analysis
  • Collaborative phone and web session
  • Three front cover concepts
  • Refinement of one of these concepts, based on your feedback, until  you are completely satisfied

Book Title Consulting

Your book title is, in essence, a promise to readers — choosing the right title is critical. It must capture a reader’s imagination and communicate your core message in just a few words. It’s possible for a well-written, superbly-designed book to languish if the title is all wrong. Our book marketing expert knows what works with buyers and what doesn’t, and will help you craft the perfect title!

Author Bio & Back Cover Copywriting

Convince readers to buy your book through compelling back cover text. The copy on the back cover must inform the reader about your book and contain your sales pitch, while your biography must establish your credibility. 1106 Design will make sure that both speak directly to your target audience so they are encouraged to buy your book.
