Premade Cover Groups… Exposed?

Nathalie M.L. Römer - Independent Author

I decided to do a list of Facebook Groups I belong which ALL do premade covers. Pretty much all of the groups require you to request membership. Groups like these are valuable for Authors like myself who are always hunting for places to get their covers from.

All the designers I’ve dealt with so far are very nice, very professional and very responsive to your need as an author. That’s ONE endorsement I will give for the designers I’ve had a pleasure working with or with whom I’m currently working… To make sure this list is impartial I will not indicate which groups I’ve gotten covers from. I will add more groups to the list in due course.

They don’t want to be well kept house cats or children on generous allowances. Replacing meaningful work with checks for all will bore a gaping hole where many find purpose and have fun.
