Book Cover Design

I enjoy every part of the process when creating a new book cover design. I love learning about the book. I always become inspired when the author begins discussing their project, along with their design ideas for the cover. We discuss these ideas in-depth, and we decide together which design direction to take. My initial sketches help us to confirm that our ideas work. Once we are happy with the sketches, I can add more detail. The next stage is the addition of colour. the author is always integral to the designing process.  It is vital to me that the author feels in total control of the project. The final steps would be fine tuning the cover size after learning the page count. I can then add the blurb, author photos and ISBN if required.

Some authors provide photos, or would like me to source photos for the cover. I am always happy to do that. I will always ensure that any photos are top quality and are from legitimate sources.

I hope you enjoy looking through my gallery. If you are an author in need of a professional book cover artist with decades of experience, do contact me, and we can chat about what you require.

Here are a few testimonials from some happy customers…

“Somehow she made sense of all my vague ideas, ramblings and mutterings, and created a cover that not only exceeded my expectations but also – by some magical process! – brought my thousand-year old story to life. I cannot wait to finish my next project and watch from the sidelines as Sam weaves her magic yet again!!”

These designs for Author Hugh Garai are some of my favourites. I created the covers and interior illustrations. I have recently created a trilogy book featuring all three covers, and all illustrations. These have been long and challenging projects, but I am a bit saddened that they are coming to an end. I wish Hugh all the best with these fantastic books.

“For Look Down I simply sent her a crude sketch I had done in my clumsy ham-fisted way and she rendered it into a beautifully detailed full-color cover. It required almost no modification at all. I am amazed at Sam’s talent!”

“Sam turned a simple concept I had into one of the most beautiful covers I’ve ever seen. Everyone to whom I show the book says, “Paul, this is a beautiful book!” If you want a great cover, just give Sam a little information, get in the flow, and watch a beautiful cover come to life. Five stars, Sam!”

“Samantha Wall’s ability to turn my abstract ideas into the exact design I needed combined with her prompt turnaround and professional approach made her an invaluable part of the publishing process. I look forward to working with her again.”
