Book Cover Design

Kentucky authors often contact me for book cover design. I love to read. I am also married to a librarian, so we have tons of books in our home. These projects are always fun. I create industry standard layout design, while capturing the author’s vision. Authors also hire me for copy editing eBooks and printed books. I format all titles to publishers’ digital and print specifications.

"Lessons on Gifts and Giving" Book Cover ArtGeorge Thompson

Greenville, KY

Here is another book cover art design for Western Kentucky pastor and author George Thompson. I do not get to do as much Photoshop work lately as I would like to, so I had really had fun with this design. I do not typically use many filters, but the halftone and glow effects enhanced the spiritual theme of the book. Also, I jumped at the chance to use one of the ribbon style fonts that are popular lately in an appropriate setting. Wrapping everything up, I used one of my favorite color combinations in blue, orange, and yellow. The contrast of the colors is stark, bringing the weight and power to the design that the theme calls for.

Buy the paperback on Amazon.

"Lessons on Strengthening the Church" book cover designBook Cover for George Thompson

Greenville, KY

Here is another book cover design for my old friend George. The author has also been a pastor here in Kentucky for many years. This is a short guide he wrote for growing and strengthening church congregations. As such, I chose to go the literal route with this cover design. George liked my idea of juxtaposing a weightlifter with a shining stained glass window overhead. His publisher has very exact standards for formatting, and that is not his forte. George entrusted me with formatting the content and arranging its indexes to their specifications.

"Lessons on the Lord's Prayer" book jacket design

George Thompson

Greenville, KY

George Thompson is a pastor in my hometown in Western Kentucky, and is one of the first humans I can remember knowing. George has authored several books on theology and travel. This is a reprint done for a new publisher. I actually formatted his manuscript for their size and specifications, making a few minor edits, in addition to the jacket art.
