FAQ’s

Why Grace?

Grace Gladys Famoriyo is an author, speaker and coach. She has worked inside the industry in the marketing division of a publishing house, as well as on the outside as a self-published author. Grace has a Masters degree in Publishing and also runs an academy for authors, speakers and leaders.

Why is this service necessary?

For many years, Grace has seen the negative impact (financially and emotionally) as well as damage to an author’s or publisher’s reputation when they have unwisely tried to save on costs and/or designed their cover while lacking the essential know-how of designing effective book covers.

The fact is people WILL judge your book by its cover and this is most often reflected in your sales, though there could be other factors too. Time after time, author-publishers approach Grace for advice though, most often than not, it is too late as they have printed their books. They then face the decision of either keeping the books or reprint with a new cover. You can save yourself the heartache, financial loss and much more by getting help before you approve any cover designs. This is the value Grace brings.

Does Grace design my book cover for me?

No! Grace offers you invaluable, expert advice based on her many years of industry experience. The goal is to help your book catch the eye of your target reader in a very crowded and competitive market.

I can do this myself, cant I? So why do I need Grace?

If book cover design were a simple matter, big publishing houses would not have teams of experts who are on the ball when it comes to covers. Why? Because they know their market and know consumers have so much choice. Therefore, want their books to stand out. So, if the Big Guys are doing this, it would be foolhardy for a new or inexperienced author-publisher to not do likewise i.e. get expert advice.

Grace’s philosophy is you can pay now or you pay later. Either way, you will pay!

How much should I expect to pay for a good cover design?

That’s a tough question and it depends on who you use. Grace has paid between £150 and £350 for her covers, depending on the project and the designer used. That said, some people have paid a lot more (thousands). One thing is for sure; you DO get what you pay for.

I’m planning to design my book cover myself, use a cover template or get someone who knows how to use Photoshop…

STOP! Unless you or the person you plan to use has industry experience in the designing book covers specifically for your genre, you are setting yourself up for a costly mistake. Failure-proof you project by booking a session with Grace. In the least, buy the manual, Great Covers Sell Books, as there is A LOT to consider, more than you think you know. After all, your book, which you have spent time writing, deserves better.

I have a graphics designer. Can they design my cover?

Yes…BUT only if they have relevant experience designing book covers for your genre or else it’s the case of the blind leading the blind.
