After a month wait, CT Cover Creations is now back with a newly designed website! We have so many exciting stuff to share with everyone so be sure to go through each of them and tell us your thoughts!
First, we've redesigned the whole website and added more pages for you to go through especially the portfolio and premade section. For the portfolio, we've added event banner, logo, and author branding. For the premade covers, you can now browse through them by genre.
Second, we've updated our services & packages. If you're looking for something but you can't find it on the website, please don't hesitate to reach out to us and let us know what you're looking for. The services listed here are the main services we offer but it's not limited to those. We do pretty much all types of designing.
Third, we've updated the testimonial page featuring the talented authors we had the pleasure of working with along with some of the projects that we worked on. If you're wondering what it's like working with CT, you already know where to go.
Fourth, we're finally able to find some time to work on our premade covers and we're so thrilled to announce that we've created 11 new premade designs. What makes this batch exciting is that these are the type of covers that you haven't seen us done before. Something we’ve been wanting to do but never got the chance because we don’t receive these type of projects even though we always wanted to do it. This is what we love about premade. We get to do the type of covers we want and have all the freedom to go crazy with it.
The rate listed on every cover is for the eBook cover only. If you wish to purchase the print version, it'll be an additional $50.
Fifth, we are happy to announce that we've started designing author branding for a while now. Since it's a new service that we're offering, we only have a few designs to show you at the moment. Some of the branding we designed are still not released by the authors so we’ll have to keep it to ourselves for now. Once they share it, we’ll be sure to put it on the website too!
Sixth, in celebration of the revamped website, we've decided to clean and update our premade covers. While going through them, we've decided to remove some of them. These are mostly our very first premade covers so they're at least about 8 years old. Instead of simply getting rid of them, we decided to offer it for free to whoever needs them hoping it'll help someone in any way. Yes, you read that right. We’ve giving away free ebook covers! This can be helpful for new authors or those who are planning a freebie book but doesn’t want to spend on the cover. There’s a total of 15 covers up for grabs. And to be fair with everyone, it’ll only be one cover per author. If you're interested in any of the covers, email us at ctcovercreations(at)gmail(dot)com.
Seventh, like we mentioned previously, we've clean up our premade covers. Around 40 designs from our old premade covers are on sale. Price starts at $10 for an ebook cover so if you're looking for a quick cover while on a tight budget, head there now!
Lastly, I want to thank everyone who helped CT in making the revamp possible. It's a very time consuming project and it made me remember why I kept on delaying it. It was indeed a crazy journey, especially if you're both the graphic designer and the web designer. If you’re planning to do this, be ready not to sleep lol! No matter how crazy it was, I’m happy to say that I had an amazing time too! Thanks to those who supported me behind the scenes. Your emails and messages means a lot. I’m truly blessed to have you guys. I appreciate YOU.
Also, I want to thank all those who had been working me all these years. Thank you for sticking with me and for trusting me in every step of the way. I won’t be where I am now if it weren’t for you. The trust you put in me means so much and believe me when I tell you that it has a huge impact on the designs that I create. So thank YOU!
Guess that’s all for now. Looking forward to all the new designs and adventures I’ll be sharing with you! Enjoy the rest of your April! Stay healthy and safe!

I always loved it whenever someone comes to me and asks to get their cover redesigned. Even more so when I'm also the one who designed the old cover. It makes me happy because it gives me the chance to see how I can improve an old work of mine. It helps me see the difference between me from years ago to the me now. And the most important thing is that the author and I can give an old book a new light to it!
Regret Me Not is one of the few covers I worked on when I was still starting out as a designer. As you can see, the old cover was designed in 2014 and if you remember, CT was established in 2013. That was ages ago! And man, does it make me feel old too! So big shoutouts to Danielle for giving me this chance and for trusting me again to design her cover once again.
Be sure to show your support and buy your copy of Regret Me Not, which is available in Amazon in both eBook and Paperback!
Still can't believe that CT Cover Creations is now celebrating its 8th year! I owe it to those who kept believing in me all these years so thank YOU, thank YOU, thank YOU! You have no idea how much you changed my life. I would've never thought I'll reach this milestone. Yes, for me it is. A huge and very important one too!
When I started doing this, I didn't even think I'd last for a year considering how my skills were. I can't help but cringe whenever I see my old works, like I want to dig a hole and hide. I was that student who belonged to the lowest group in the batch, you know? The one who never really have the talent. The ones who won't make it, they said. I was used to feeling that way since I never really did have the talent so it wasn't new to me. One, I'm a huge introvert. And two, I didn't bother about what others think of me. After all, it's my life not their's, right?
So to finally find something that I truly love and enjoy doing, I'm beyond blessed.
Funny how in the past, whenever I hear someone talk about passion, I can't help but laugh. Why you ask? It's because I couldn't believe what they were saying. Like is that really true? Only after experiencing it on my own did I fully understand what they meant. Nowadays, it's me saying the same thing and sometimes, all I can really say is, "Once it happens, you just know." It's hard to explain but yeah, it's different. So I'm grateful to God for leading me to this path.
If I didn't become a cover/graphic designer, who knows what I'll be doing now.
But like everything in this world, it also has its ups and downs. I've been disrespected so many times that I've lost count. I had clients disappear and not pay for the services I provided. I had people questioned me and made me feel I didn't deserve to be where I am. I had my fair share of bad experiences and they taught me things I would've never learned any other way.
Over the years, and after what happened to me for the previous months, I've learn and realize a lot of things. I've learn to prioritize my health the hard way and those who don't understand this are people I shouldn't work with. I've known the people who truly have my back when things are difficult. You guys know who you are. Please know that I'm always grateful to you for the patience, the understanding, for giving me the chance, for always believing in me, and for being such an amazing person from different parts of the world who I can truly call a friend. Some of you are even considered my best friends!
To be honest, some of you believe in me more than I believe in myself. It's a huge pressure at times but because of you, I learned to believe in myself more too. So thank YOU. I wouldn't be where I am now if it weren't for YOU! Thank you for being with CT for the past 8 years and hopefully, you'll continue to stay for more, more, and more years to come!
And lastly, my promise to you - who had been trusting me and my capabilities all these years - is that I'll continue learning and improving my skills in any way and whenever I can so that I can give you better covers that will represent your stories.
Again, I can't thank you guys enough for working with me. You changed a timid little girl's life more than you know.
Since it's the anniversary month of CT, I want to share one of the covers that have a very special place in my heart. R.E. Butler is one of the first group of authors that took a chance with me when I was starting out in 2013. I can still remember how clueless I was then. Everything was so new to me. Who would want to take a chance with a new designer, right? RE did and I'll never ever stop being grateful to her since the day I received her first email.
Purred Promises was the second shifter cover we worked on and I can still remember how much I struggled with it. I had an idea in my head but with the level of skills that I have during that time, it was beyond difficult.
Fast forward to now, RE decided to re-release it and turn it into a series. Words can't express how happy I was when she told me about it and that she wanted me to design the new cover too. I was thrilled that I had so many ideas for it! Cider Falls Shifters are different from the usual PNR covers that I design mainly because they are hybrid shifters so it was such a challenge. After discussing and designing the cover, we came up with something we're both proud of!
Seeing my old work makes me cringe but like what RE always tells me, it shows how far you've gone and I think that's definitely a great way to look at it.
I've grown a lot with RE and most of the time, my projects with her ends up surprising me too. We have this unique way of working together and understanding each other. She's one of the people who pushes me to my limits that I didn't even know I was capable of. I feel so blessed to have met her and to have such an amazing friend/sister from the other side of the world. Thank you for always trusting me, for giving me the chance, and for still working with me after all these years!
Purred Promises (Cider Falls Shifters Book One) is available in Amazon! Be sure to grab your copy too!
