Overview

Reviews (2)
I'm an award-winning book cover designer with many years of experience. Because I've worked with so many publishers over the years, I've designed covers in a wide variety of genres. Most of my experience lies in nonfiction, poetry, short fiction, art and photography books, cookbooks, and nature guides. I can often work with cover art suggested or provided by the author, and am also willing to do art research to find the perfect image. I also occasionally provide photography or create original art for covers.

Erin was a wonderful designer with whom to create my first book cover. She really walked me through the process and I was extremely pleased with the finished product. The consummate professional, Erin was prompt in producing deliverable results and very clear in her communication. I would definitely work with her again.
