… for the re-launch of Tiberius Found.
I took the gamble of hiring someone from Fiverr, after reading about the many positive experiences from a number of self-pubbed authors. I did a little research and hired a lady – based in the US – with a high positive feedback score and pretty good T&C’s.
The first cover art she returned was awful. No disrespect to her but it missed the feel and tone of the story by a huge margin and I thought that I’d have to chalk it up to experience. However, she was fully up to do re-work (as her pitch had indicated) and the next version was pretty much what you see above – save for a few tweeks here and there.
She’s also supplying a CreateSpace-friendly version which includes a book spine and back cover – this was an ‘extra’ option I paid for when hiring her. And I’m extremely likely to go with her again when Tiberius Bound – the 2nd part of The Emperor Initiative series – is ready to fully roll-out.
The re-launch for Tiberius Found will be in the next few weeks – in time for Christmas, and all those lovely new e-readers – so keep watching.
