Let’s be honest, people do judge a book by its cover–especially in this digital age of mass picture uploads on social media sites, flooding the internet with images. If you have a poor quality cover, or one that does not fit your genre, readers will dismiss the book in a second without even reading the title itself. A great cover can save that from happening! This is true with book illustrators as well.
On Goodreads.com, I’ve created a folder for book cover artists and illustrators to post about their services. Here is the link to that folder: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/837698-book-cover-artists-illustrators
And for more listings, you can check out the folder on the E-Author Resources blog: https://eauthorresource.wordpress.com/book-cover-artists/
Remember! Always do your own research on the artists you find! While I provide a place for artists to post about their services, I do not make any guarantees as to the quality of their work. Take a look at their prior artwork, and even request samples. This will help you see if what they provide is a good fit for your project.
