Most importantly:

  • Contact: bookcovermachine@gmail.com
  • Hundreds of premade covers currently available! I have a huge variety of genres and styles. The best place to stay up-to-date on premades is on my Facebook page, as I post covers to various shops for exposure. Our Facebook page can be found in the sidebar of this site!
  • My covers are unique.While I do use stock imagery to create many of my covers, I ALWAYS combine multiple images and/or add effects to make an end product that is unique.
  • My covers are exclusive. Once you purchase a cover from my premade gallery, or I create you a custom cover, it is yours and yours alone. It will be taken off the market and never sold again.
  • My covers are affordable. Premades are $59, and custom covers range from $50-$300. Many of my contemporaries charge hundreds for premades, and between $700-$1,000 for custom covers.

  1. I would love to jump in now! My hesitation is that my husband created my covers, so there’s some toes I don’t want to step on.

    Is it possible for you to take an existing design and make it better??? (Silly question, I’m sure the answer is a yes!). I like the picture I have, but it’s basically a small picture between two very thick black bands, top and bottom. That’s where we’ve put the title and my name. It look dramatic enough, but there’s more black band than picture and I’d really rather more picture!

    I’ve got a whole series underway and I want covers that match and look good. I’m also open to suggestions. How do you come up with a design that will work for the book without reading the book?

    I can post a link if you wish to have a look (I don’t want to put one up without your okay).

    Meanwhile, I’ll natter to him and show him your art – we had it in our minds that professional covers would cost the moon. This might take a little while. 🙂

    My work is sci-fi but some think of it as fantasy. It also has touches of the occult.


    • It’s definitely possible to simply spruce up something that you already have 🙂 I had a look at the covers that you have posted on your blog, and I agree – I like the imagery itself (especially for the 2nd book)!

      Before I get carried away yammering on here, why don’t you shoot me an email (LauraGordonDesign@yahoo.com), and we can hold further discussion there!

  2. Oh, and forgot to mention – I think your art is very inspiring! 🙂 Makes me want to get out the romance pen name and have a crack at one of the romancy-type ones. 🙂

  3. Your book covers are absolutely exquisite! I can’t get over how beautiful they are! I had a question though: if I were to purchase a pre-made cover, would that cover still be available for sale to other authors, or would it be exclusive to my book?

  4. I have every intention of having some custom covers made by you – you’re an incredible talent and I only can wish that I was able to make covers like you do! I’ve enquired with you, and I recently sent you another email so I’ll hear from you soon. 🙂

  5. Hi Laura! I was recommended to come to you from a friend of mine who is also a writer. I’m hoping to get my 1st book published soon but i am no good on the artistic side of things. I must say i am very impressed! Still unsure about what i want exactly at the moment but when i do i’ll be in touch

  6. I love your work! You are so talented! I am hopefully going to self publish this year. Do you by any chance do custom covers for newbies?

    • Hello, and thanks for inquiring! Yes they can 🙂 If you need an entire ‘wrap’ cover (front, back, and spine), that’s something I do for $40, and is taken care of separately from ordering the front cover.

      Let me know of any other questions!
