Okay Creations specializes in eye catching book cover designs and author branding. We work primarily with self published authors and currently freelance for all major publishing companies. Our covers have been on multiple New York Times bestseller lists, USA Today bestseller lists, and in the Wall Street Journal. You put your heart & soul into the story, your cover needs to show that.
We are visual beings. Recognition serves an important role in our minds. When a reader sees one of your books, they should know it right away. Whether it be the font of your name, or creating similar styles for a series, we can do it.
Romance? yes. Paranormal? yes. Dystopian? yes. Young Adult? yes. New Adult? yes.
No matter the genre, we can do it. We even have relationships with several photographers to get you custom images for your cover. We also can work with stock images and typography. Heavy photo manipulation is always welcome, we love to be creative and want your cover to represent your story in the best way possible and pop off the page when browsing eBook sites.
I currently do not make my prices public, but send me a message and I will gladly email you a price sheet. Let's talk covers!
I get a ton of requests for information about self publishing, and hopeful authors requesting referrals for formatting and editing.
I have never self published. So I am collecting what I do know here, for your benefit.

Care about your story. A LOT. Care about your writing. A LOT.
Writing is an art form. It has never been a get rich quick profession, writers write because they have a story to tell. Writers do not write because they want a yacht. Writers don’t write because they want a bigger kitchen. Writers write for themselves, and if we are lucky, they share it with us. Writing is my favorite art form, there are authors out there that can craft a sentence as well as Van Gogh could put the perfect brush stroke on canvas.
Two other things: EDIT. And then EDIT some more. Nothing is more irresponsible than having a manuscript riddled with mistakes.
Oh, and get a pretty cover. It’s the first impression people have of your book.
