Book Cover Designers

Yakimali's Gift Front Cover

Recently, I wanted to update my cover for Yakimali’s Gift, so I asked a Facebook group I belong to (ASMSG, Author Social Media Support Group) for cover designer suggestions. As expected, this awesome group of writers provided me with lots of choices. (I ended up choosing Tugboat Designs; see my beautiful cover above.)

I’ll continue to update the list as new designer referrals come in.

I wanted to share this list with other authors, so here you go!

First, John Chapman offered this blog about things to look for in a cover.

And now for the list! (Please copy and paste the address into your browser.)
