I'm a book cover designer
I'm a book cover designer

Hi, I’m Joshua Jadon


I am a 22 year old book cover designer based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

In 2013, I dropped out of college to pursue my interest in designing book covers for authors of all different genres, all around the world. I’ve created book covers for people like New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Debra Burroughs, internationally bestselling author Jeff Carlson, New York Times bestselling author Eric Pete, and many others.

What will an eye-catching book cover design do for you? It will catch your readers attention, help you sell more books, and turn your book into a bestseller. If you want me to get started on your book cover design today, click the blue “order” button at the top of my website.

Contrary to the popular saying…”Don’t judge a book by its cover.”…this is exactly what your readers do.



I design book covers that sell.

Readers are only going to look at your book cover for an average of 2-3 seconds before deciding whether or not they are actually interested in picking up your book or not. This is a perfect opportunity for your book cover to do its job.

Catching your readers attention and selling more books is the name of the game, so that first impression your book cover has on a reader is important. It’s kind of like the first time you see a movie trailer…by the end of it, you’ve most likely already decided whether or not you’re actually interested in seeing the movie. The same applies here with your book cover, you want to gain their interest, and turn them into a reader.

Most people go wrong at this point, publishing books with just mediocre covers that aren’t too professional. Don’t be one of them.

Your book cover design provides your book with a MASSIVE opportunity to stand out on the shelf. So it’s important to get it right.


Your book cover MUST have the WOW factor to win readers attention.

Getting your book out there in the real world successfully and selling is not some far fetched dream. If your taking the self-publishing route, you can do it just like a professional company would, if not better. Your book cover design is the first thing that will make readers pay attention to your book, so make sure it stops them in their tracks.

There are lots of books published both on and offline so it can be hard to get your book noticed if your not too familiar with what to do, this is where having a designer on your team comes in handy.


The first thing readers see is your book cover…so make it count.

You are are in 100% control of how much of an impact your book will have on your readers, starting with the book cover design. A good question to ask yourself is, “Would 1 person be interested in reading your book or will 1 million?”.


According to Google, there are about 130 million books published in the world today.

That’s a lot of books for readers to choose from. The only way to make sure your book is not the needle in the haystack is to get it to stand out way more than the average everyday book would and trust me there is a difference in good looking and eye-catching.

The most successful bestselling authors do it right just by paying attention to each little part of the publishing process. You won’t get anywhere just by thinking about what you want, you need to put those thoughts into play so you can see the results. A bestselling book is created, it doesn’t just happen out of nowhere.

Your book cover design is a key piece to the puzzle period. The only difference between a successful book and an unsuccessful book is if the readers are buying the book or not.


How can you make sure your book is not a needle in the haystack and will actually catch the attention of your readers and sell? 3 words. Book cover design.

So let me help you out! I design eye-catching book covers. That’s my focus and what I do. The covers I create are all meant to catch the attention of your readers nothing less.

My point is….your book cover will either help you become a bestseller or it won’t.

Pick a side.

What’s my schedule like?

Always ready to design another book cover.

Why do I have my clients fill out my cover design order form?

It helps me gather the necessary and relevant information I need to create book cover designs without having to read through the whole book. Also, it ask for information like your book title, subtitle, author name, page count, dimensions, your vision of the book cover, colors, etc. since I will need those to, depending on if your ordering a print or ebook cover.

Should you order just a eBook cover design or a print & eBook book cover design?

It’s up to you as the author, most of my clients purchase both in order to make sure they cover all playing fields.

Should you have an author picture on the back cover of your book?

Some books fit having an author picture and some don’t, it’s completely up to you.

What are the FREE 3D renderings you mentioned?

With every book cover design order I get I always make sure to create my clients a few FREE 3D book cover renderings that can be used for promotion, on social media, on websites, or wherever else. In simple terms, they are just eye-catching images to beautifully display print and eBooks in their digital form without having to use a camera to take pictures.
