Luke Ahearn’s Design Services

Cheap covers are costly!

If you’ve written a book, spent countless hours on your dream, and are ready to self-publish you know how important a great cover is. It’s an accepted necessity. What you might not know is that one pretty image is not the end of what you will need, it is just the beginning.
You will quickly discover that you need a long list of variations and derivative graphic materials and it’s all these added and unforeseen items that drive up the actual cost of a cheap cover. Unlike other designers that charge you some pretty hefty fees for every little thing they do, I do it all for one cost.

And, unlike most designers, I am a successfully published writer of both fiction and nonfiction. I’ve created, designed, and have seen the end results of my cover work going back decades. I’ve done it on my own and with large publishers.

Among the things you might find yourself needing, almost immediately, are assorted sizes, formats, and layouts of your cover. There will be tweaks and changes along the way such as adding reviews and updated copy. You might even need to add an award medallion or indicate that your book is now the first book in a series.

If you do any marketing, and you will need to if you want to sell any books, you will need a 3D version of the cover, banners, ads, and even an audio-book version of the cover. It’s all included in one price with me. Go price all that with another designer or service.

I don’t sell a cover and wipe my hands of you. I don't sell packages, just waiting for you to come back for more, I sell a professional cover with my ongoing support and service. Getting a cover for your book is only the beginning of your needs. A cheap cover will soon cost much more than my complete cover service.




About the Designer

I'm a book cover designer. I've been an artist since I can remember and have over 20 years of experience as a professional artist creating computer games, physical props, digital art such as book covers and digital murals, and a large body of 3D work.

I am also a commercially successful author with 10 nonfiction books to my credit (many in their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th editions) and several fiction pieces, including a series of zombie novels. I've done the covers for all of my books. My skill and experience in various art styles and forms, as well as my understanding of traditional and indie publishing, makes me a particularly effective book cover designer.

Now, after having just broken up with her boring, run-of-the-mill right wing boyfriend, Sean, she’s on the verge of finishing her graduate degree, moving to Paris, and is desperate to shake things up!

She’s had a crush on Nicholas Sullivan, her British professor, for as long as she can remember. So when opportunity comes knocking to spice up her appearance, in the form of a French life coach, she hires Jean Luc Dubois to help her let her hair down and become more Parisian and hip, to reflect the person she is within.

The Dead of Haggard Hall
Darke of Night
Book One
Marie Treanor

Genre: Gothic/historical/paranormal romance

Publisher: Samhain Publishing

Date of Publication: 26th July 2016

ISBN: 978-1619235830
ASIN: B01CUOPRZQ

Number of pages: 216 (paperback)
Word Count: 71,000

Cover Artist: Kelly Martin

Book Description:

Spirit possession is easy to remedy. Possession of the heart is another matter.

After vicar’s widow and natural medium Barbara Darke loses her respectable teaching position, she reluctantly agrees to become companion to her former pupil Emily, now the bride of young Sir Arthur Haggard.

Once settled at Haggard Hall, Barbara finds her friend is beset by ghostly voices and unexplained deaths. In a maelstrom of dark spirits and wicked emotions, Barbara battles to lay Emily’s ghosts to rest—both hampered and helped by Arthur’s skeptical cousin Patrick, who provokes and attracts her in equal measure.

It would be a mistake to trust a secretive, guilt-ridden man suspected of driving his wife to suicide, if not outright murdering her. And it could well be lethal to give in to her own desires, confused as they often are with the lusts of the dead.

But Arthur and Emily are in genuine physical danger, and suspicion is falling closer and closer to Patrick—the man who haunts Barbara’s sensual dreams. The man who stands to inherit Haggard Hall.

Warning: Contains a medium whose body is open season for spirit possession, and a scandal-ridden journalist who only believes what he can see—and touch.

Until he stumbles across Callie. Because she has a zombie on a short leash, and Roman is carrying a syringe full of zombie cure.

Callie and Roman will face soulless survivors and rabid zombies on their journey to save a single infected. Along the way, Callie will have to choose between her past and a whole new future.
