Book cover design and royalties


Question

I have a client who would like a book cover design and wants to use it for unlimited publishing. For the designers who have experience with this have you negotiated royalties? Or just accepted the project for a flat rate?

It's up to you, and quite often it's situation dependant. If it's a very niche book that's only going to sell a couple of hundred copies then you're probably going to prefer a flat rate anyway, if you're illustrating the cover of Dan Browns next novel however you might want a piece of the back end... The main thing is getting a fee that you can walk away happy with.
