An old teacher of mine asked me to do a book cover for him, but i'm not sure what to charge or if there is any royalties involved. i tried to search for any topics like this and i couldn't find it, but i'm not very good with search engines so i apologize if this has been asked before. i appreciate it guys.
the size is 9.2 x 7 inches
You might want to check the job section and particularly the "Employment discussion" subsection. But you will need more information than that, like, how many copies is he going to have done? Is it self-published? Doesn't he have a publishing deal? If he's self-publishing, don't count on royalties. How many territories does he want to cover? What rights does he want? Etc.
royalties are not the norm for book cover illustrations, or at least not with any publishers that I know.
Typical cover illustration rates are 1000-2000 for indie publishers and 2500-4000 for major publishers. Working with an individual could be anything though, you should ask what his budget is.
Amount of money per hour you hope to make*number of hours you expect the project to take*1.2 (so that you have room to haggle down) is the formula I've always heard.
thanks for the help guys i appreciate it ill have to talk with him to see what his budget is, and see what we can come up with. thanks again.
