Cry Cassandra - Charles Owen - Woman outside near a lake

“They were intuitive, talented and a delight to work with”

Charles Owen, author of Cry Cassandra and Fiamma

The SpiffingCovers team is based in a charming village close to the River Colne, south of Colchester. I quickly got the impression that they did not waste their own money and would not waste mine. I found them friendly, approachable and very professional. They were meticulous in their attention to detail, intuitive, talented, competitive in their pricing but, above all, a delight to work with.

“Always approachable, friendly and efficient, SpiffingCovers provide an excellent service.”

Barbara Kay, author of Over The Wall

I’m so pleased I entrusted my manuscript and cover design to SpiffingCovers. I’m even more pleased with the outcome and can’t quite believe how great my book actually looks on the shelf.

As a new author and first time self-publisher I needed help! Other companies I’d contacted left me feeling as if I was just another number but SpiffingCovers took a very different approach.

During my tentative initial enquiry I sensed an immediate interest in my book. I was asked to read out the synopsis, answered lots of questions and was delighted with the suggestion of a dramatic cover with strong colours.

Always approachable, friendly and efficient, SpiffingCovers provide an excellent service. They do what they say they will do, on time and at the very competitive price agreed.

I will certainly be back! My second and third novels have been retrieved from the dusty bottom drawer and I’ve started the edits…

Well done and a big thank you to everyone at SpiffingCovers.

***** Five Stars. I would most definitely recommend this Company.

Internet Party - Helen Fuller - Hand selecting a vote button from inside the book

“I cried with joy when I saw the cover”

Helen Fuller, author of The Internet Party

I was overwhelmed by so many positive emotions that I sat and stared at my computer screen for a long time. How could anyone design a cover that good? The depth of the images and vibrancy of the tones made it seem alive.

I stumbled upon SpiffingCovers when I was searching for a cover designer on line. I looked at the work of so many designers that I lost count, but there was always something missing. Then I came across a cover design competition site and saw that SpiffingCovers had won several awards. I liked what I saw so I looked up their website. It seemed like a professional company and it most certainly is.

Life Of A Salesman - Rupert Harry Miller - Mannequin sitting on steps with down-on-luck salesman looking at a suitcase

“SpiffingCovers have been a joy to deal with in every aspect”

Rupert Harry Miller, author of Life of a Salesman

SpiffingCovers have been a joy to deal with in every aspect of preparing my book, ‘Life of a Salesman’ for the market place. I now have every chance of achieving my aim of raising awareness of the plight of all Haemophiliacs who are suffering from the contaminated blood scandal. Take a bow SpiffingCovers.
