As well as being a visual representation of what readers can expect from the book, your book cover needs to be attractive and engaging. After your front cover draws your reader in, your back cover blurb should intrigue them and make them want to purchase.
Our design team will work one-on-one with you to create a full cover design that is true to your book and will appeal to your target audience. Your input is crucial during the design process to ensure you are completely satisfied with the final look. We encourage you to share your ideas about images and fonts, and what colours and styles inspire you. If you are not sure, your cover designer can offer their suggestions and expert advice.
The cover design process works as a back-and-forth exchange between you and your cover designer until you’re happy with the result. The service includes design of the front, back, and spine of your book cover, ISBN barcode production, and back cover blurb editing. Our goal is to finish with a professional, modern cover that appeals to your target audience and connects with you.
Frequently Asked Questions
That’s okay! The designer can offer their advice and ideas for you to consider. They will discuss with you the plot, characters, and overall themes and ideas you explore in your book.
We recommend that you look at some other book covers for inspiration. Search for books that share your genre or themes and save examples of ones that you like (or hate!) if you think it will help our designer get a clear picture of your preferences.
You can use any image you have permission to use for commercial purposes, such as personal photos you have taken (like family photos or photography shots), images you have written permission to use (like images that friends or professionals have taken), public domain images, or stock photos with a commercial use licence purchased from a stock photo website.

Loved my experience with the team at InHouse.
All the staff that covered every area for my book was quick to do their individual jobs, responded quickly to emails, happily made changes when necessary. Understood my purpose and mission for the book which gave me confidence that I chose the right publisher.
Really good all round!

Wonderful, wonderful Inhouse Publishing has so far produced two of my books, working round the clock at the last minute to make it all happen on time, as at this pre-arranged launch at Queensland Terrace in 2019. Extraordinary capable and generous, we are lucky to have them here in Queensland.

I have collaborated with InHouse Publishing for over five years now and find them to be a professional, ethical, and caring family-run self-publishing business who have helped many authors realise their publishing dreams. Highly recommended!

I engaged in-house publishing to deliver my second book the little book of Human. From the first conversation to the delivery of the product I was incredibly impressed with the care that the entire team showed towards me and in particular their willingness to understand the human behind the book. The way the process moved seamlessly from one department to the next tells me that this is a team who cares for each other, and in turn this is felt by me the customer. With book three now into concept stage I know I’ll be giving in-house publishing a call once the manuscript is done. You won’t go wrong if you engage them.
As a published author of 11 books with International and Australian publishers,…
As a published author of 11 books with International and Australian publishers, I turned to In-House to get a specialist subject book produced I
could not get any agency interested in. I was so happy with the results and their professionalism I have since published 3 more books with them and will do so again. I recommend anyone who has a story they want to tell to seek some advice from In- House Publishing.

I am so thrilled that I went with InHouse Publishing to print my book. The finished product is better than I had imagined. They did the cover design, type-setting and print. Working with this team, you know you are in safe hands. They are friendly, timely, skilled and most importantly they listen. It was wonderful to collaborate with them to bring this book to life. I can't thank you all enough - Nevada, Chrisstie, Tahni, & Caroline. Their processes are down to a fine art!
