I'm a first time novelist who's just written her debut YA sci-fi thriller. I have previously paid for a designer to create my ebook cover using my detailed brief, however, the final job isn't quite up to scratch, and doesn't seem to be the right size, as when put into a mobi format for Amazon publishing, it's only showing up as half the size of a page.
The writing isn't as clear as I'd like it to be, and the silhouette's of the characters designed don't fit the characters in the actual story (for example, instead of a thirty-something-year old man, I have the silhouette of a teenage boy).
I have the previous design in a photoshop file and can send to you once you are hired. Otherwise, I have a jpg of the cover to send, so you can see what you'll be working with. If you have ideas for a better looking cover, I would be happy to consider them.
For this job, what I want is for someone to rework the cover making it the best it can be, then saving it in various sizes so that I have the right cover size for all ebook formats (for example: Kindle, Kobo, Nook etc).
I would also like a banner to be created which I can use on Twitter and on websites.
I have several more books I am working on now, including a series, and would ideally love to use the same designer on my upcoming projects, so I am hoping this will be the start of regular work for you.
I don't have a very big budget and unfortunately, I've already spent some on the previous designer but the figure here is roughly what I have.
