The novel won’t be ready for another 12-18 months, but I am excited to have my book cover. What do you think? Thank you to A.L. Hinds. I love it! In addition to book covers in different formats, she creates platform/bio pages and event programs. If you are interested in her work and/or what she can do for you, visit… Read more →

Received 31 responses when I posted the request on Fiverr. Learning what questions I should ask. Might write a blog about researching book covers on it when I am done.
