Fantasy Book Cover Designer

Hi, I'm Karen Dimmick, a paranormal & fantasy book cover designer creating custom and premade book covers.
I specialize in Symbol & Typography Covers, Paranormal Women's Fiction, Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, and Dark Fantasy, however I will work with all the sub-genres of both fantasy and paranormal. I also provide a typography service for those with their own artwork.
My goal is to create an on-genre cover that sells your book. I have worked with New York Times bestselling authors, USA Today bestselling authors, Wall Street Journal bestselling authors and I've had covers in the top 100 on Amazon, as well as multiple bestseller orange tags in various category lists.
I create covers for new books, as well as recover existing series. I've taken books with a rank of 10k+ on Amazon, recovered them and seen their ranks improve to the 1k range and stay there from that point on, gaining repeated orange tags.
As you can see in my testimonials I focus on being easy to work with, a good communicator and bringing the project in on time... even when it's a rush job.
You can find my pricing and other services (like marketing images), up in the menu, along with my FAQ. If you have any other questions, I'd be happy to answer them and I hope to be able to work with you soon.

Book Cover Genre-Specific Portfolios

I work in Fantasy and Paranormal genres, specializing in typography and symbol covers. I've created different genre and style specific portfolios to help you see if my style fits what you're looking for. I have portfolios for Typography Book Covers (Light), Symbol & Typography Book Covers (Dark), Paranormal Women's Fiction (PWF), Paranormal Romance (PNR), Urban Fantasy, and Typography On Art where the author provided the artwork and I did the typography.
My specialty is with both typography covers (where the title is the artwork that will attract your readers) and symbol / object covers (where the objects are the focus of attention), however I do also create character based covers featuring your awesome characters.
For extras, I do character cards, book marks, banners etc for use at conferences, in reader gift packs and on merchandise.
I don't work with Horror, Thrillers, Children's books, Historical Romance or Nonfiction. For anything else, feel free to ask me.

    Karen Dimmick is professional and a great communicator. Working on my two new covers with her was a joy, and I'm happy with the results. She even went the extra mile to hand craft a fabulous graphic swash for my title, giving the typography that special something!

Hi! My name is Karen Dimmick.
I've loved fantasy and magic for as long as I can remember & have been in the publishing industry for nearly a decade.
I know how important is it for a book to look its best, and for potential readers to be able to tell at a glance it's a book they'll enjoy. Without that, even great stories go unread.
As you'll see from my testimonials, my clients love working with me because I'm easy to work with, communicate well and deliver on time, like you'd expect any professional to do.
Born in England, I now live in Florida, USA with my husband. I've traveled the world, living in Europe and Asia. I've had my own bestselling non-fiction book, as well as fiction books, so I've seen both sides of the cover design process.
I believe authors should be able to give their books every possible chance to succeed, with a cover that attracts readers and meets the reader's expectations for the genre.
That's why I created Arcane Covers - to help you make your book shine.
