First-Time Author Program

We understand how daunting writing your first book can be, including financially. We know professional covers can sometimes be out of reach of new indie authors- but we also realize how important cover design can be for marketing and gaining interest and traction.

To help, OGD offers a first-time author program with a generous discount. Spaces are limited and are first come first serve.

To qualify, you must:

  • have no traditional or self-published titles (this includes under other pen names)
  • agree to attribute OGD as cover designer within the book (this is typical and required for all cover purchases, not just first-time authors)
  • agree to allow OGD to use your final cover on social media marketing/promotions
  • Have a book releasing within the next 60 days (if your book is being published later, you can come back! Spots open at the beginning of the month. Follow our Instagram @occult.goddess for updates when spots open)

What you will get:

  • A custom physical full-wrap cover (illustrated covers are not included in first-time author program)
  • Matching E-book cover
  • Matching Book logo
  • Cover Revel graphic
  • Full wraps are defaulted to 5x8 in. print, but can be customized. Fina cover will be sent in .PNG and .PDF formats.
  • E-book covers are defaulted to 1600 px x 2560 px, but can be customized. Final cover will be in .JPG format.
  • Once finalized, client reserves full rights and usage. Covers are never resold.
  • OGD reserves the right to use final covers for marketing and promotional materials.
  • Acknowledgment must be included within the final book (print and/or eBook).

Custom drafts are typically sent within 7 business days from when forms are submitted. Once draft is finalized, final items will be sent within 3 business days.
