This is my debut novel and I really had no idea what to expect when I started this process. I had a vague vision in my mind, but no idea how to make it come to life, or really even explain it. After my first meeting with Annemieke, I was so excited to work with her. Even though I felt like I had no idea what I wanted, she asked all the right questions to coax information out of me. By the end ...

Annemieke was a delight to work with. I can't say enough how much I appreciated her creativity, flexibility, and appreciation of the value of collaboration. She's also a lovely human being, and I hope to keep in touch with her in the future in one way or another.

Erica Nyden
Annemieke was wonderful to work with. She was extremely patient with my many questions and was easy to communicate with. She listened to my ideas of how I wanted my cover to look and did all she could accommodate as well as suggest design elements I hadn't even thought of. I hope I will get to work with her again in the future.
