“You will be hard-pressed to find a better book cover designer”

“You will be hard-pressed to find a better book cover designer”

Peter is an absolute professional in every sense of the word. I had some specific ideas for my cover, and he not only helped me bring those to life but improved upon them in ways I could not possibly imagine. He works in a timely fashion, communicates closely with you during the process, and he turns around revisions in a remarkably short time. I couldn’t be happier.”

Peter Telep (@PeterTelep), #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of ‘The Secret Corps’ – United States

Looking for a book cover designer?

Let’s face it. We all judge a book by its cover.

Color, typeface, images, and layout combine to give us an impression of what a book is about. And we decide if we like it – in 10 seconds.

That’s all the time you have to grab a browser’s attention.
And if you fail – they’re gone – on to the next book. You lose a buyer.

So it pays to get your cover right.

“Truly a joy to work with”

Sharon Hoisager, Author of “The Cornmarket Conspiracy”, Texas, United States.

“They exceeded my expectations”

It was hard before I found Peter and Caroline. After spending seven years writing five books you become very attached to the characters and the stories, and you want to find people to bring that to life through the covers. The designs came back and they were perfect. They were exactly as I had envisaged. 

Nicole Baquie – Author of upcoming series, Oclala, Florida.

“I highly recommend them”

If you want a book cover that helps to sell your book I highly recommend Star book writing.

Trish Evans – Author of “Katy’s Ghost”, United States.

“The cover he produced blew me away”

“I am a crime writer, with ten novels published by the traditional publishing houses, but used Peter when I embarked on a personal pet project. Dealing with Peter was a delight, where he was always professional, courteous, and timely, and I could not fault at all the way he worked. The cover he produced, however, blew me away. It is my favourite cover out of all of my books. Simply beautiful. I would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to others.”
Neil White
#1 Best Selling Crime Author of “Lost in Nashville” – United Kingdom

“He would keep producing designs until I was thrilled. Such attitude!”

“When I wanted a graphic artist for my new book cover, I looked around a few sites to find out what was in the offering. I was dismayed to find that all book cover designers, I came across, offer you two chances for them to get it right. This rattled me, as I believe the cover is the selling point for the book. Maybe it shouldn’t be, but let’s face the truth, people continue to choose books by their covers. The search continued until I found “Starbookwriting” Book Covers and started a chat with Peter who, without prompting indicated that he would keep producing designs until I was thrilled with the results. Such attitude! From this, I deduced that Peter understands the importance of getting it right and was keenly listening to what I wanted portrayed. I relaxed somewhat. Peter was providing a service, not just a product. Second try hit the mark. His design is far better than anything I could possibly have imagined or described. Using only a few key words, the cover was all done and dusted in under a week. The man is a wizard. I highly recommend him to others looking for the best cover for their book”

Mary Crabbe
Author of ‘Prisoner’s Wife’ – Australia

“I am delighted with the cover! It is almost identical to what I had envisioned”

Thank you for the great cover, your timely responsiveness, and overall professionalism. Once again, you do amazing work, Peter. Not only are the covers wonderful, the overall experience is most gratifying. It was certainly a great pleasure doing business with you

“Peter produced a highly polished and striking book cover for me at short notice”

“Peter produced a highly polished and striking book cover for me at short notice.  In fact, the first cover he designed for me I accepted straight away.  I highly recommend “Starbookwriting” to anyone hoping to publish their book in either print or electronically”

“I don’t think anyone can expect better service than I received from your company. Your response time was so fast that by the time I got back to the computer I had an answer from you”

Thank you for everything. I love the cover. The creative and original way you have framed the bear photo to show age is unique. Blending the two words together in the title using different color type is great. I don’t think anyone can expect better service than that I received from your company. Your email response time was so fast that by the time I got back to the computer I had an answer from you.
Excellent. Thank you so much.

Author of ‘Scot Free, Memoirs of a Maine Girl’ – United States

“Very good work, high quality, in time. Peter captured like nobody the idea of the story, and it makes for me a very appealing cover”

Very good work, high quality, in time. Peter captured like nobody the idea of the story, and make for me a very appealing cover, that arose the curiosity of the reader.

Original Portugese testimonial:
Trabalho espetacular, dentro do prazo, e de alta qualidade. O Peter capta como ninguém a ideia que se quer transmitir através de uma capa que sem duvida atrai a curiosidade do potencial leitor. Muito obrigado.

Author of ‘1385 O Golpe Dos Bastardos’ – Portugal

“Nothing was too much trouble. I adore the final design and would have no problem recommending Peter (he’s also pretty nifty with the technicalities of ebooks)…”

Cover-design is so important and it wasn’t something I was prepared to attempt on my own. So, I Googled designers, wanting someone in the US and found Peter’s website. His website is easy to browse and it answered all initial questions, so much so that I emailed Peter immediately, not expecting a reply for a few days. His response was quick, helpful and professional and I knew he’d be able to give me the time and patience to get my book cover right. Over the next few days we talked about the vision I had for the cover and from my ramblings, Peter was able to put together a fantastic first draft. I was blown away. We made some changes, throughout which Peter was attentive and patient. I’ve commissioned him to work on the prequel cover, knowing that he’s a pleasure to work with and will create a stunning cover. Definitely someone you want on your team.
