A great book cover design is the most crucial ingredient to self-publishing success. It’ll make everything a whole lot easier and cut down on marketing expenses. However, long-term sales will depend on reader satisfaction and visibility.
I’ll tell you a secret: before I was a book cover designer, I was a full-time developmental editor while finishing my PhD in Literature. But it was frustrating, because as an editor I couldn’t really fix the core problems with any given manuscript.
I was supposed to just improve and polish an author’s vision, but found myself being too critical and just saying “This story won’t sell because X” or “Readers aren’t going to like this character because Y.”
I realized recently, getting this kind of manuscript critique and feedback about your book’s commercial viability is potentially the MOST valuable service I can offer, so I’ve started offering a package of “literary services” that will help you publish your best book, and added some book launch and marketing strategies to help you become a #1 bestselling author.
WHETHER YOU WANT TO GET AN AGENT OR SELF-PUBLISH, YOU NEED TWO THINGS TO BE SUCCESSFUL:
- a much better product
- a brilliant hook
“Great art has an audience,” which means, even if you write a brilliant book, nobody will care if you can’t hook their attention immediately. Writers who spent years writing an intricate story often have a hard time limiting it to a one-sentence pitch, or fitting it neatly into a genre category. But your pitch is critical: whether it’s in the query you send to literary agents, or add to the top of your Amazon book listing, the hook is going to get people to lean in and be willing to learn more about your book.
Get it wrong, and your book will fail.
WHY RISK IT? GET HELP!
Our Warhol Book Design package is already priced competitively, but we want to help you succeed by adding in a suite of services, tutorials and training resources that will banish the self-publishing overwhelm and help you avoid the critical publishing errors that most authors make with their book launch.
We’ll focus on turning your manuscript into an attractive and seductive product that makes readers or agents beg to read it (and actually be willing to pay for it!) If you want to get a head start on your book marketing and ensure the ultimate success of your project, we recommend starting with these essential services.
MARKET ANALYSIS AND METADATA OPTIMIZATION
Make it easy for readers to find you! We’ll identify the right market for your book, and suggest the keywords and categories to help readers find your books online. SEO experts will help position so that it gets discovered organically on Amazon or Google. $349
Included with the Warhol book cover design package!
BLURB REVISION AND AMAZON PAGE
We’ll help make sure you correctly categorize your book and choose the right keywords, but getting found isn’t enough. You need a blurb that actually sells the book. We’ll rewrite the blurb to balance the fine line between discoverability and intrigue. We’ll also help you create 3 brilliant “hooks” you can test in your marketing or sales copy. $349

SUPPORTIVE AUTHOR PLATFORM
Before saying yes to your book, agents and publishers are going to review your author website and social media profiles, to make sure you’ve put some effort into building a platform and developing a relationship with your readers.
If you’re self-publishing, your platform will be even more important, because success will depend on cultivating fans and connecting with other authors in your genre. You’ll need to build a list of beta-readers to get reviews on your book quickly, or your book will be dead on arrival.
We’ve built a suite of online courses on building an author platform, setting up your website and email list, getting social media followers quickly, and communicating with your fans. We’ve put these together into a course bundle called “Guerrilla Publishing” – which includes the services above plus a full year of publishing support! $997
FIRST CHAPTER REVIEW
Whether they’ve received a free review copy or paid to purchase your book, the majority of readers will only give it 5 pages to hook their interest. If they don’t care about the characters, don’t understand what’s happening, or are turned off by the presentation of material, they’ll put your book down and never pick it up again.
It is critical that your first chapter sucks them in and keeps them reading. There’s no use editing the full book if you lose readers in the first chapter. $197
AUTHOR PLATFORM AUDIT
Before saying yes to your book, agents and publishers are going to review your author website and social media profiles, to make sure you’ve put some effort into building a platform and developing a relationship with their readers. If you’re self-publishing, your platform will be even more important, because success will depend on cultivating fans and connecting with other authors in your genre. This video review of your platform will not only identify the right audience for your book and suggest ways to put your work in front of them, it’ll also help you identify and remove any red flags that will alarm potential supporters. $197
