Easter Sale All Premades are $10.00

Sale Runs April 2nd  - April 5th

ATTENTION: I will be having surgery on April 7th. So I will be out of work April 7th – April 15th. That is if all goes as planned. It is possible I could be out longer. I just wanted everyone to know ahead of time.

All premades are 10.00. Yes all premades, no matter the price listed! Except covers that have art that I do not own. I work special deals with graphic designers. And the price on those covers is firm. But I only have two as of right now.

Sense the last sale I have added new covers to my premade page on Safari Heat.

You can earn a free cover for sharing the sale, and one for referring a friend if they buy a cover. You have to buy at least one cover to qualify for the free covers and your referral has to buy a cover for you to get a free referral cover.

Last sale there was some confusion. The way the free covers work is as follows. You purchase the covers you want and then the free covers will be added as additional covers after you have made your purchase.

You only get two covers free at max.

But the amount of covers you buy is up to you. There is on limit. So go crazy!

I will also hold covers for you to use at a later date. I will remove them from the Safari Heat page and place them in a folder with your name on it as paid. When you are ready just shoot me an email and I will put your title and name on the cover. Either one at a time or all at the same time it is all up to the author. But when the sale ends all my covers got back to normal price.

If you have bought covers and they are still up on the site please be patient. I am teaching my daughter in law how to keep my website updated. This includes removing covers from the site and adding them to client folders. I just get too busy.

Don’t see any covers you need or want right now. Well I have a deal for you as well. Just decide how many covers you want to pre-purchase and I will send you a gift card to lock in the sale price. This sale is a win-win for all authors. Don't miss out and be sure and share, so your friends don’t miss out either.

As for my regular clients if you choose not to receive emails about sales then just shoot me an email at careydoucet@yahoo.com and I will take you off my mailing list.  I only email when I am having an amazing sale I think my clients can benefit from.

You can also sign up for our newsletter by following the Safari Heat link and the sign up is in the right hand side bar. If you sign up for the newsletter you will get five dollars off your next cover purchase. Everyone that signs up for the Newsletter will receive a five-dollar Gift Certificate towards their next purchase. Not redeemable for this sale.

Any edits done to premade covers will cost extra and the cost will depend on what the author needs changed. And covers are not held until payment is sent. So be sure and contact me ASAP about a cover you are interested in.

Please do not contact me by Face Book, or leave a comment. I will not respond that way. You need to email me directly at (careydoucet@yahoo.com)

Please feel free to share. The more the merrier.

I also wanted to let my clients know that my website has changed from dot COM to dot net. (ebookcoverdesignsbycarey.net) The reason for the change is a really long and frustrating storey. I had a problem with Host Gator. I have problems with them every year and this year I just threw in the towel and went to One Web Hosting.  

I also wanted to let everyone know I will be updating and making changes to my ebook cover website it has been a long time and it needs to be revamped.

If anyone has any questions just email me at (careydoucet@ayhoo.com)

I also want to let everyone know that these sales go over really well. So please be patient. I am only one person and can only get so much done in one day. Last sale took me three weeks to get the covers finished. I will do my best to work as fast as I can. But realize you are getting a really good deal. I will also work with deadlines if you have one. Just be sure and let me know what your deadline is.

Bok Bok Happy Easter!!!

Have a great day,

$10.00 Covers Valentines Day Sale



Runs Feb. 14th – March 1st..

All premades are 10.00. Yes all premades, no matter the price listed!

Sense the last sale I have added 80 new covers to my premade page on Safari Heat.

You can earn a free cover for sharing the sale, and one for referring a friend if they buy a cover. You have to buy at least one cover to qualify for the free covers and your referral has to buy a cover for you to get a free referral cover.

Now to make sure you get the covers you want, you need to pay for the covers at the time you order them. Then when someone buys a cover because of a referral you sent, you get an added cover. I will not deduct the cost from a invoice I have already sent out. Now you are more than welcome to wait to place the order and when your referral places an order then we can take it off the invoice. The reason for this is things get way to complicated. Trying to remember who payed what and what I need to remove from a invoice. 

You only get two covers free at max.

But the amount of covers you buy is up to you. There is on limit. So go crazy!

I will also hold covers for you to use at a later date. I will remove them from the Safari Heat page and place them in a folder with your name on it as paid. When you are ready just shoot me an email and I will put your title and name on the cover. Either one at a time or all at the same time it is all up to the author.

Safari Heat Services

Safari Heat offers a multitude of services. We aim to be a one stop shop for authors on their journey to publications. Whether you are a seasoned author or a newbie just starting your career we have something for everyone. Lets talk about what Safari can do for you.

1. Editing- Finally finished your book? Well don't forget the importance of a good editor. Even bestselling authors need editors. The worst mistake a new author can make is thinking they don't need an editor. No author is that good.

2. Ebook Covers- As much as we would like to believe we shouldn't judge a book by it's cover that thought process could leave you with low sales. With all the books on sites like Amazon readers just don't take the time to read all the blurbs. So you have to catch them with a fantastic cover that jumps off the page. You would be surprised in the sales you can make with a cover that catches the reader's eye.

3. Social Media- Let's face it almost everyone is on Facebook, etc. Sales can really soar if you have good exposure on Social Media sites. So be sure and join as many as you can handle. But be sure and stay active on the sites. So limit them to whatever you can manage. We also do banners for FB, etc.

4. Reviews- I can't stress how important reviews are but you need honest reviews. Not fake reviews from friends and family. With Safari Heat you will get those honest reviews. We do not guarantee good reviews. These are honest reviews done by readers. But this is the best way to know where you need to make changes in you writing career.

5. Print Covers- Some may think print covers are not necessary because most readers read on a Kindle or some form of a tablet or their phone. But some still want the feel of a book in their hands. If you for go the print version of your book you may lose sales.

6. Website Design- Every author needs a great website. And I know most authors are lost when it comes to trying to design their own website. If you are creative enough to do it yourself then I say go for it. But for those of you that need some help I recommend you hire someone that knows what they are doing. This will take the headache out of the process. You will still have to get the content you want on the site to the designer but that is a simple enough task.

7. Blog Design- I won't go into this too much sense it is pretty much the same thought process as website design. You need a great blog to go with your website.

8. Formatting- This is another big one. You can do it yourself but hiring someone makes it easier on the author and insures it is done right. Bad formatting can lead to bad publicity. I see it all the time in reviews. It takes a lot of dedication to make the right impression and once you make a bad impression then it is too late to changes it. Your only course of action would be to take on a pen name and start from scratch which is a royal pain.

9. Advertise With Us- Advertising is very important. The more readers that see your book the more likely they are going to be to buy it. It is a proven fact that few readers buy a book the first time they see it but if they see it multiple times on different sites they are more likely to spend the money. So be sure and post your book on as many sites as you can. The more exposure the better.

We are having a sale on our services from Oct 9th-Oct 31st. 

Ebook Covers- Premade covers are buy one and get two free.
Personalized covers are $5.00 off.
