Beautiful Book Design.

Maybe you just need a killer e-book cover that captures readers’ eyes. Or perhaps you’re taking your book through self-publishing and need the whole enchilada. Either way, you’re gonna need a nice-looking cover. If the book’s in print, the cover has to be designed correctly, which means you need to know the size of the book, which means the manuscript must be finished and in good condition (edited and proofed). Then the designer can do a great job through and through.

A good designer gives you choices in the cover. Whether it’s an e-book cover or print cover, the best start with a conversation between designer and author. They need to understand each other and SEE the finished product in their heads. That gives the designer a little leg up on her end. We do fabulous book covers here, some of which you will see in our portfolio pieces. Long before we opened FCM, we were helping authors with their books in all regards. We do good work on the interior design, too. Ah, but you’ll need to check out our authors’ books we designed to see that. ; )

Whether you use us for your book design or another talented designer is up to you, but the more you can make that designer see what you have in mind for the book the better! It’s really all about communication. That’s something we understand well here at FCM. Everything starts with phone conversation. Give us a call. We promise by the end of that call you will be a lot more educated about publishing, design, promotions or whatever you want to discuss. We are all about giving you choices, and that starts with understanding your options.

Why don't I see pricing on this site? It's a question we get from time to time, but most authors understand that we don't have a one-size-fits-all pricing structure because every book is different. There is no way we could accurately or adequately quote a ghostwriting project, for example, or book design cost when we don't have all the details. There is a big difference, after all, of a 300-page business book and a 150-page memoir. There is a cost difference in the size of the book and whether it is just going to be released as an e-book or also in print format. Do you need us to shepherd your book through the publishing process through Ingram? Do you need editing, and if so how much? Do you need a book coach, and if so how many hours a week does that mean? These are not rubber-stamp costs on our side. There are too many variables. We will keep your costs down, and we offer financing through the PayPal credit program. If you qualify, great! You can have it all.

As for fixed costs, okay, we have a couple. We charge a flat $350 per 45-second trailer for your book. We call these BLINKS. (Like BLING but for your book!) We can create a simple three-page website for you for just $350. That includes lots of links and a gateway to PayPal if you fulfill your own book orders. And for an e-book cover we charge a flat $40.

"Indie authorship isn't a noun.  It's an attitude. A mindset.  It's about believing in yourself.  It's a movement. It's a movement that believes every writer has a right to publish." Very well said Smashwords, we at FCM couldn't agree more!
