Your first sentence and your first page — it all works together to draw your reader in. But how to hook a reader if they don't open the book? That's where Cover Pub comes in.



Hello! My name is Samantha. At Cover Pub, I design custom, quality book covers to captivate your readers and convince them to take a look inside. I also offer premade book covers and a few other extra goodies.

How and why did Cover Pub begin?


I began freelancing as a writer and designer in 2010 while studying English, Professional and Creative Writing, and Communications at Appalachian State University. Soon after graduation in 2012, I decided to switch my focus from helping businesses to supporting writers, specifically indie authors who wanted professional and beautiful book covers.


But I don't want to just be the designer you hire. Think of me also as an eager supporter, cheering you on and happy dancing with you. When we work together, I want you to feel like you stepped into an actual pub -- a place of cheer, friends, good food and drinks.

When she's not designing covers or creating storyboards, she works with children's book and YA authors as a literary agent assistant — a job she also adores.

Samantha is a wonderful cover artist.
She was quick and efficient and made the process of getting my cover plus additional items painless. I will definitely be using her services for additional cover needs!  
-Felicia Tatum
Sam is amazing!
The process was quick and painless. More than I even expected. The only thing that I had to worry about was which amazing cover that I would choose! I would definitely love to work with her again! -Nicole Tetterton

The Process



If you think we'll make an awesome team together, I'd love to hear from you! Just send me an email or fill out this contact form. I'll reply with a questionnaire to start the conversation about you and your book. We'll also discuss project details, the timeline and pricing and then sign an agreement.


Now you can sit back, have a drink and get excited while I design. (I promise I won't tease you too much with what's going on!) In about a week, you'll receive a PDF concept presentation with three different book covers. Then you'll decide which cover you want to move forward with and jump into revision rounds.


Cheers! Once you give your final approval, I'll prepare all files that need to be sent. Upon final payment, you'll receive your book cover with any other graphic design materials following closely behind. Then it's time to celebrate! When you do your cover reveal, it'll be time to celebrate again! ...Not that we need an excuse to party around here. ;)

Samantha is amazing!
She took some of my vague likes and turned them into a work of art. I absolutely love my cover! She was fast and finished ahead of schedule. I cannot wait to work with her again!
-D.J. Pierson
Samantha was so nice to work with!
She understood my ideas clearly and provided excellent concepts for me to choose from. I am really impressed with her work and will definitely be contacting her on future projects!
-Avery Corcoran
  • I've found my forever cover designer! I commissioned Cover Pub to design two covers for my paranormal romance series, and I was impressed by the personalized service and the quality of the product I received. Samantha not only took the time to read my books so she had a clear idea of what they were about, but she also provided three concepts for each cover so that I would have a variety of options to choose from. The final design is exactly what I wanted. Highly recommended!

If you were to visit the Cover Pub Facebook page, you'd see this gallery named "the family album" instead of "portfolio." That's because that is what I think we have grown into -- a group of people cheering and supporting each other, getting excited about these books. If you decide to hire me, I hope that's what we'll eventually become.
