Morgan Wright Launches her Book Cover Animation Service
Updated: Aug 24, 2019
I'm so excited to announce that I am now offering Book Cover Animation services to authors and publishers😁!!
"After spotting the animated cover offer from Morgan Wright Books, I thought I'd give it a go. For the price I didn't feel I had much to lose, and I really wanted to get into the animated cover market with my latest novel. Don't let the cheap introductory price fool you - I was stunned at the quality of the work produced, it exceeded my wildest expectations and is amazing. Morgan was a pleasure to work with and happily modified the initial two designs several times until I was more than satisfied - I am truly delighted by the end result. If you are thinking about getting an animated cover then this is the place to go for amazing quality at a stunning price. Do it - Do it NOW, you won't be dissapointed!"
- Gareth Clegg, Author of Fogbound
NOW AVAILABLE AT INITIALLY REDUCED RATES -
Only until September 1st, 2019.
Animated covers get more social media engagement than still covers, increasing your chances of making more sales and of getting word out about your book. We tested this on Twitter with my close friend’s upcoming debut, Asteria. He did one tweet with the still version of his cover and one tweet with the animated version of his cover.
The still cover received 4 replies, 11 retweets and 20 likes. The animated cover received 15 replies, 44 retweets, 101 likes. A massive difference even though it was the same cover. The reason? Simple. Elements in motion drive the eye to focus on it longer as there’s more to see. And because people have to linger longer, they’re more likely to retweet/share, like, reply and/or check out the book on Amazon and other sites.
Animated covers is a marketing trend that’s becoming more and more popular. And eye-catching covers deserve recognition because the reality is that most people do still judge a book by its cover. It's the first thing readers see and the first thing that makes them decide whether to check out the book or not. And since animation jumps out, having an animated cover ensures that future readers will hover over your book instead of just scrolling past it in their social media timeline.
a) What do I animate & what genres?
Book Covers & 3D Mockups😍.
*If you want me to animate something else, please get in touch and we’ll discuss.
*Bear in mind, I do not design book covers or 3D mockups. All files you want animated need to be provided by you.
I animate all genres (with a large focus sci-fi and fantasy) except erotica and exceedingly violent horror (i.e. no images with a great amount of gore, adult content etc). The reason for these exceptions is that I cannot upload these covers per Twitter and Youtube’s rules which have put limitations on the kinds of media that can be shared.
***Please note, for this reason, all submissions are subject to approval.
"The reality of Morgan Wright's gorgeous book cover animations is amazing. We've been privileged to see several in-progress and are thrilled to be among her first published. Each animation has Morgan's unique, artistic touch...a welcome addition for Twitter's writers in publicizing their books!"
- Crassus Media, Independent Publishing Company
B) How do I work?
Most animators charge anywhere from $20-75 per cover and have a “you get what I give you” mentality. I don’t.
Because of negative past experiences with animators, I chose to learn how to do it myself and now I’m offering my skills for other authors to make use of.
I prefer the fully personalized, customized approach by keeping in touch with the author during the process via Twitter DM or email (whichever’s most convenient) to show you how your cover is coming and to bring any changes you like.
I’m an author myself so I know that this puts the author most at ease- if you’re anything like me, the standard, non-personalized approach is exactly the thing that puts you at risk of a having a nervous breakdown😂.
"Morgan delivers mind-blowing results! What an amazing way to grab the attention of readers! She grasps your vision with both hands and masterfully represents it in a beautiful animation. Working with Morgan is always an uplifting experience; she is caring and passionate with a talent for design and a drive for ultimate perfection.” - David Collins, Author of Asteria
