What to expect after ordering a cover

Be prepared to supply the following: cover text (title, author, book description, author bio), your cover image*, an author image (if you are using one), your ISBN** and imprint logo (if you are using one), book trim size, retail price, approximate page count, and color preferences.

We’ll create a preliminary cover concept based on the information you submitted and your book theme. You’ll be able to review and make changes to the concept with your designer, up to three rounds (or two hours).

*What’s a cover image? What if I don’t have one?

The cover image is the image used to create the background for your cover. Don’t have a cover image? We can help brainstorm ideas, or do a photo search for you for an additional fee. We’ve done hundreds of covers, each uniquely suited to the interior content, and we can help you get your perfect cover in no time!

**How can I get an ISBN?

If you don’t have an ISBN, we can supply one. One of the Luminare Press Imprint would then be the publisher of record, but you would maintain complete control over the content of your book, and retain all rights and 100% of royalties. Our fee is $49.00 per ISBN. You can purchase your own ISBNs at Bowkers Books in Print.
