Self-Publishing and Book Design Mastery
1000 subscribers + book launch + more reviews
The free templates on this page are just a basic package to help you get started with a functional cover. If you'd like more professional templates and a wider selection, as well as guided walkthroughs and tutorials, showing you how to save money designing a beautiful cover from scratch (now including Photoshop tutorials!) you should upgrade to the master package.
And because I want to help your book succeed, for a limited time, I've bundled three of my publishing courses together with the premium book design templates - a total value of $628... on sale today for just $47. The templates alone will save you hundreds of dollars in design fees: the courses on building your author platform and email list so you can launch strong may save you thousands (helping you avoid sketchy "book promotional services" that don't work). It's my way of giving back to the indie community.

How do I open the templates?
Find and download the .zip files and extract them to your computer. You’ll need Microsoft Word to open the .word files and Photoshop to open the optional .psd files.
Can I grab any images from the internet?
Absolutely not – but there are tons of royalty free options, as long as you know how to search. In the videos I’ll share a trick for finding the photo’s original owner or license info.
Can I use the images and fonts in the templates?
These templates are meant to be training wheels to help you get started – I don’t recommend using the same images I selected, and technically the rights don’t transfer, so you’d need to at least buy your own version first.
What if I can't find any templates I like?
If you like the idea and understand the process, you’ll find a much wider variety of templates in the master package of templates. You can upgrade anytime, but you’ll get the best deal if you take action today.
Can I hire you to design my book?
I’ve trained a team of designers to take over my workload and work with clients, so now I’m more of a creative director than a designer, but all our work is guaranteed. You can see our portfolio at www.creativindiecovers.com
How do I publish and market my book?
This is a huge topic, but I’ve tried to break it down in these articles:
Is my book cover good enough?
The important thing to remember, is that nobody’s opinion matters more than the data; it doesn’t matter what your neighbor or cat or dentist thinks. All that matters is that strangers who read books like yours recognize that your book might be something they’d like, and click/pick it up to read the blurb. If it’s not working, it’s not good enough.
