“Quick, incredibly talented, reasonably priced, and super reliable. I feel like I’ve hit the Cover Designer Jackpot.”
—Erin Wright, USA TODAY Bestselling Author
of the Long Valley Series
First off… congratulations! Completing a book is no small feat, and very few who set out to write one actually finish. So you're already ahead of the game. And since you're here, you're another step ahead—you know that your cover has to be a great first impression for your book.
Whether you're looking for a fully custom design, a budget-friendly premade cover, snazzy 3D cover images, or promotional graphics, I've got you covered. See what I did there? Yeah, I can hear the groans from here.
My name is Suzie O'Connell, and I am the owner and designer here at Sunset Rose Books. I'm also a USA Today Bestselling Author of contemporary small town romances, so I know firsthand how important a good cover is. I've done the trial and error route, tested covers with my fans and other designers, and studied covers from top-selling indie authors and Big 5 publishing houses. Because a good cover is more than just beautiful artwork. It's an advertisement for your book. It has to capture attention, convey the kind of book (genre, themes, etc.), and convince readers to click… all in a glance.
Now we're to the point that you probably want to know if my covers will do that. Here are some things you can check out to see if my style will be a good fit with yours (yes, that's important, too):
Ready… set… go! Let's create a cover to make readers stop and say, "Wow! I need to read that book!"
“Suzie has been my cover designer for a couple of years now, after I went through a string of designers who were great (but unreliable) or not-so-great (and also unreliable). Once I started working with Suzie, though, I felt like I’d hit the Cover Designer Jackpot. She’s quick, she’s incredibly talented, she’s SOOO reasonably priced, and she’s super reliable. You really cannot go wrong with her. Although I write in the romance genre, I’ve seen her covers in other genres and…damn! She is just good. As long as she’s willing to design for me, I’ll never use another designer.”
—Erin Wright, USA TODAY Bestselling Author of the Long Valley Series
“Suzie designed 20+ covers for my contemporary romances and is without a doubt my go-to cover designer. Each cover is a mini work of art that conveys each particular book’s emotion—and is right on target for that market. She has an instinctual talent for knowing what an author wants and melding it with what a cover needs to stand out from the crowd. Just as important, Suzie is a great communicator, she really listens to my ideas (and then comes up with something even more amazing) and she’s fast and reliable. I’m addicted Suzie’s mad design skills, so I have to prevent myself from stocking up on covers for unwritten books just because they’re so pretty.”
