Cover Designers - a run down


So you've written your book, you've had it edited and proofread...now all you need is the cover. But how do you choose? There are so many cover designers out there. I put the call out for recommended cover artists, and here is what authors had to say. I've got a link to their website/Facebook in their header and a general price overview beneath. All the prices are correct at the time of publication, but I'd recommend contacting the artist directly to get a more comprehensive quote. I've also put a sample of their work below.
