Robin has designed two of my covers so far, and I hope to have her do many more in the future! She is professional, quick, and her work is better than most of my book covers designed by major publishers' art departments. In my last book, particularly, she was able to do a cover for a sixth book in a series where the other five covers had been done by a big publisher, without having access to the same model or fonts. She made it seem effortless to make the new book fit in seamlessly with the others. She can make magic!

What our clients are saying...

Robin designed my beautiful new book cover and accompanying swag of bookmarks, postcards and magnets. She is professional in her approach to clients, intuitive and patient during development, creative and imaginative in her designs. When I said I wanted something "outside the box" Robin kept me on course for my genre and made my story shine with something fresh and unique. She is the total package designer and I would recommend her to both first time and well-experienced authors
