Overview

I'm a book cover designer of four years, and I'm in love with art of all forms. I've done covers in every genre, but my favorites are anything YA, NA, paranormal, post-apocalyptic or fantasy. I'm also an author, so I know how authors minds' work, and I know how much you want - and NEED! - your cover to represent your book perfectly.
