*Updated August* Huge List of Cover Artists For Indie Writers

One of the hardest things to do when you self-publish is find a cover artist that will understand your vision and create an eye-catching, cohesive representation of your story. The cover of the book sells the book, and you may have to change your cover several times before you find what reaches the most readers. I’ve been lucky in receiving several fabulous covers from my e-pubs, and I wanted the same thing with my self-pub titles.
As I was wading through sites trying to find what I wanted, I realized there was no one resource for indie authors, so I created my own list of book cover designers, many of which have pre-made covers available. This list was compiled from one of the Indie loops I am a member of, blog posts, websites, word-of-mouth and research.

The two most recent I have used are The Author’s Red Room for my erotic romance and Viola Estrella for the suspense novel I have planned. Be sure to give the artists as much lead time as possible to develop your cover. It will be worth the wait.

Also have a huge stock selection.

She did my two Decadent titles, but I do not think she is accepting new orders right now.

Huge stock selection.

Have a huge stock selection too.

You may have to sign in, but it’s super easy and well worth it.

I don’t even remember where I gathered them all, but if you know of more, leave their names and sites in the comments section.

Thanks for reading!
