I can't even begin to express what a joy Betty was to work with. I have been working on my book for almost 5 years and we wanted the cover to be something special. Betty exceeded all of our expectations! She is both extremely talented and a very nice person - it was a lot of fun to work with her and I appreciate the patience she had with me as I tried to figure out what I wanted. I wholeheartedly recommend her - I am very grateful for the wonderful book cover and I will definitely be bringing her more work in the future.
BettyMar was a dream to work with. I liked her right off the bat so I ended the contest early so we could just work together with one on one, to complete the design with confidence. She's been amazing every step of the way; worked incredibly fast and sent me every adjustment without even a hint of irritation. She said, "It's your book, so we have to get it right," and took her time to teach me some aspects without me even having to ask. She simply recognized that I didn’t understand something in its entirety and offered clarification. This has been a beautiful experience around a project that I have worked so hard for, a novel 3 years in the making. THANK YOU BETTY!Review by N.J. Simat
