God Plutonium - Cover Art and Design
"Don't judge a book by its cover."
What a load of shit.
With eCommerce book sales making up over 80% of the market distribution (and growing), there are a few things you need to keep in mind when you make a book cover.
- A book cover thumbnail is smaller than an inch when viewed on a mobile device.
- You have less than a second to grab a potential customer's eye.
- Mobile devices are the preferred vending machine for book purchasing and reading.
- Dynamic covers increase clickthrough to a book listing and sell more books. Period.
Whether we like it or not, the days of going into a bookstore and looking at a physical book are a thing of the past. In other words, a reader browsing horror books isn't going to click on a book that doesn't immediately grab their eye and their interest.
So, no matter how awesome your book is, if no one even clicks through to read the description, no one will buy and read your book. That's why your cover is the most important first impression you can make.
FACT. Muddy, dark, and busy covers/books with a bunch of text on the cover don't sell online.
GOD PLUTONIUM IS THE SOLUTION!
All the covers God Plutonium creates are custom-made by Drew Stepek (award-winning cover artist and award-winning marketing/entertainment industry Creative Director).
We will never try and pawn off a pre-made cover. More importantly, we will work DIRECTLY with you in a creative consultation session to give you something dynamic.
Even better. Our prices are SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper than most pre-made covers out there.
Look at the Godless best sellers (Top 10 and Legacy). Drew Stepek designed a significant amount of these book covers.
What's the secret formula?
We know what sells (and why) because we can see under the hood of Godless. We know what horror book performance looks like. We have the metrics. The metrics never lie.
