Cherie was excellent to work with. Responsive and professional in my interactions with her. As I was new to the process of self-publishing, she was able to provide guidance on how things worked. Anytime I came across an issue, she was quick to address it with feedback and/or adjustments to the book cover. When I need a book cover for my next novel, she will be the first design artist I contact.

Working with Cherie was a delight! She guided me all through the cover creation process, structuring and improving my ideas. Definitely recommended, and it goes without saying I'd work with her again in the future if possible!

Cherie was extremely professional and a dream to work with on my first cover design. She took my suggestions and added her own creative spin. I felt involved in the process, and she completed the work ahead of time despite a brief delay on my side. I am super excited about my cover and would recommend her to anyone!

And that one was the cover I went with! ...

Another excellent collaboration with Cherie. Came up with a great image for me and a great on-genre book cover. Highly recommend.
