ATTN BOOK PUBLISHERS, INDIE AUTHORS & COVER ARTISTS-
*** Please read my rules and guidelines carefully.*** Things have recently changed on this site. Photos have now been watermarked. For those looking to purchase a watermarked photo for your book cover, follow these instructions -
a) Send note or email (email@example.com) stating the image # that you are requesting to purchase. Note the title/author name of the book.
b) Immediately following your email, make payment via paypal. (Paypal email - firstname.lastname@example.org) also noting in the memo the title/author name/image #.
It can take up to 5-7 days for your image to arrive due to my busy schedule I will either send you the unwatermarked high resolution .Jpeg or a link to it from here where it can be downloaded.
d)Once you have received the image, contact me and let me know so I can re-watermark the image.
e)Finally, once you have completed your book cover with lettering. Please send me the polished,finished version so that I can promote the book for you.
Standard Ebook Image Cost - $20 + paypal fee. (1 time use)
Banner Image Cost - $15 + paypal fee.
Paperback Stock Image - Will depend on size and scope of book. Contact me for more info.
Exclusive Use of specific image - $300
***PLEASE NOTE*** - The Standard Ebook Image Cost is "per book cover." So for example, if you want to use the same image for 3 separate book covers, then the cost would be $60 for all 3.
Besides my fees, I also request that the photographer & I be credited in the publication if possible.
For Artists or Book Cover artists not looking to pay but just be creative, I did set up a scraps section in my gallery titled "Free Stock Of Jason" These images can be used for practice, book covers, etc. without charge. There is no watermark on these images and the high resolution version can be downloaded here. I do not mind if they are used for book covers as long as the photographer and I are credited in the book and I receive a copy of the finished cover. See photos here - jasonaaronbaca.deviantart.com/…
Pre-Made Book Covers - For those artists that would like to make pre-made book covers using my stock, just notify me of the image you want in high resolution. You may create as many premade covers as you wish without charge. Once the cover is sold, then paypal the ebook fee.
***SPECIAL'S FOR FREQUENT STOCK USERS BEGINNING IN 2013***

RULES TO ARTISTS/INDIE AUTHORS/BOOK COVER ARTISTS CREATING ART/COVERS OF THESE PHOTOS -
- If you are to use my photos. No using an arm or leg or replacing my head with someone else's head. If you are searching for specific body parts , please search elsewhere. My photos are not to be used for anatomy only.
- Also , No M/M Homosexual books. Menage books are acceptable as long as it is not geared in a homosexual fashion.
- Avoid cropping entire face off cover. While it is perfectly fine to crop head off for covers, I am not a fan of it so Please use the entire photo or if possible. I will not promote books where face & head have been cropped.
- Credit in book as cover model (when possible) and send a .jpeg of final approved cover so that I may promote it for the author as well. Being credited in the book is not mandatory but requested by both photographer & talent.
