I really loved the way that the design looked and the font. She really captured the colors and brightness that I was looking for, and she followed my instructions very well. She's a very talented designer.
Will hire again!
Beautiful designs and done in a timely matter!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am young adult, new adult and mystery writer working on several series of books to be published electronically and physically via Amazon's publishing platform. I'm excited to dive into mystery writing with my first novel in this genre, Slain by Spanish Sculpture.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a book cover designed for a new series I am beginning to write. I know most people wait until the end, but I like thinking about the cover in the beginning of my process. My first mystery novel is called "Slain by Spanish Sculpture: A Trevor Duncan Mystery". It centers around a young (in his thirties) travel writer who unknowingly gets himself involved in a murder investigation in Spain that involves Interpol when a famous artist is impaled on one of his own sculptures in el Parque de Retiro in Madrid. Despite his best efforts, the tragic death of his parents when he was a teenager still plagues him. I would also like to be able to add a barcode (ISBN #). IMPORTANT: I am looking for original work and/or the creative use/manipulation of multiple stock images. I don't want the cover to take itself too seriously. My book is a bit whimsical despite being a murder mystery.
It goes without say that I would love something that grabs the attention of a potential reader. I'd like the sculpture to look something like a modern pitchfork, but more abstract if you choose to place that in your design. I'd also like something on the cover which let's the reader know the story takes place in Madrid and/or Spain. I like simple, yet attention grabbing designs. I'm not a big fan of overly designed covers with too many disjointed images and colors. I would also like to be able to add a barcode (ISBN #).IMPORTANT: I am looking for original work and/or the creative use/manipulation of multiple stock images.
