Writers and readers both know that

"you can judge a book by its cover."


Publishing your book is an exciting and committed endeavor, one that deserves attention to every detail. You've polished your words to perfection with a competent editor and hired a professional to create a beautiful, appropriate interior layout — why would you encase your book within anything less than a thoughtfully produced, audience-targeted cover? 


Your self-published book not only deserves, but commands, a professional book cover design that will draw a reader to the words inside that you worked so hard to write.


Most anyone can place a photo or graphic and some text into a template and call it a book cover … but that's precisely why self-published books often "look" self-published and therefore fall short of impressing a potential reader. There is nearly always a clear difference between a cover created by a professional and one that isn't. Scroll through a list on Amazon or browse bookstore shelves and notice how your perception of a book is influenced by its cover; that first impression is typically the make-or-break of you opening the book or wanting to know more, right?


I want readers to be compelled to open yours because the cover so fittingly reflects what's inside that it's irresistible not to!

Whether you're publishing something new or re-publishing a previous release, I will work with you to bring the essence of your book into your engaging, audience-targeted cover art, not only with thoughtful market research, but with expertise, care, and attention to every detail.


You and your labor of love deserve it!​

Knowing that credibility with your readers is paramount, I am personally dedicated to meticulous attention to all aspects of the book you worked so hard to write. Acting as a cover designer with experience in creating engaging covers in numerous genres—including fiction, memoir, various nonfiction, academic, and poetry / inspirational, you can be assured your book will reflect your content beautifully (and I never use templates, so your book will always be unique to you) and be a strong draw for your target audience.
