Beautiful Custom Designs


Fill out my booking form with your cover requirements. You can specify a model/ scene design, or a graphical style, examples of the type of cover you want, ideas for a scene, colours, or fonts and many other options.

For illustrated character/ scene designs I create original custom artwork, rendered and painted. I also work with photo stock.


Now comes the fun part. I take your concepts and produce mock-ups for you to choose from, usually provided within 3 days of your booked date.

Whichever design you prefer I will take to completion, with a multi-stage revision process for you to make changes to design, typography and branding. I will set you up with your own portal in my client area where you can view proofs and request changes.


Your final cover design will be delivered for eBook or print (paperback and hardcover). I can provide matching promo materials and audiobook covers too, as well as series covers for later books so you can maintain your house style.

I am always happy to provide created artwork or branding separately for you to use elsewhere.


Exactly what I wanted

I wasn’t able to come up with the new look I wanted, or find someone who could come up with it–until, that is, I found Shaun at Flintlock Covers. His designs gave me exactly what I wanted. They are vibrant and moody and basically perfect. Shaun’s work was quick and professional. When I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted, he came up with a range of concepts we could work from. And his services are very reasonable, too. Highly recommend.

Meets Genre Expectations

Working with Shaun at Flintlock Covers was a great experience. When I wasn’t sure how to explain myself, he examined what I needed and solved the problem. Now, I have a cover that meets genre expectations, is beautiful, and I’m proud to show off. Shaun is quick to reply, and super interested in making sure you have the best possible cover for your book.

Shaun was great to work with. Quality cover. Professional, with good communication throughout the process, I loved how the process felt like a collaboration where my vague idea gradually turned into something real.

A Pleasure To Work With

Shaun is a pleasure to work with. I asked him to create a cover for a short story to match an existing book series. He was quick, responsive, and focused on the details I requested, zeroing in on the elements that would make the piece fit with the pre-existing designs. And the several tweaks I required as the cover took shape, he executed without hesitation. The process felt very collaborative, which I appreciate. An excellent experience. Thanks, Shaun
