Welcome.

You’ve written an amazing story, and now it’s time to release it into the world to be enjoyed by as many people as possible! Let me help by designing a cover that will entice your potential readers.

A cover promises a good read.

You have 6 seconds or less to attract a potential reader. Think of your cover as a billboard trying to catch the attention of viewers as they speed by.  The cover is where your relationship with a reader begins.

Think like a reader, not a writer.

Great covers make readers “feel” something rather than “tell” them something. A great cover expresses mood and isn’t too literal. Observe your own reading and buying habits. Study other covers in your genre with a similar tone.

Genre & tone dictate design.

More than the characters, a specific scene or the author’s personal tastes, it’s the genre and tone that dictate the colors, typestyles and imagery of a successful book cover. A great cover looks like it belongs with other bestsellers.

Style for your story,

I've designed over 1500 book covers since 2016. Here are some of my favorites:

Interested in a book cover designed by Mariah Sinclair?

My contemporary cozy series had dismal numbers and never sold well. In fact, I'd given up writing the series even though I loved it. I couldn't justify the time. After Mariah Sinclair designed new custom covers for the series, the sales numbers tripled. That's right...TRIPLED. In fact, I recently put out a new book in the series and it's doing well. Mariah is incredibly professional and easy to work with and she comes up with the most beautiful covers.
