Book Cover Designer

Hi, I'm Karen Dimmick, paranormal & fantasy book cover designer creating custom and premade book covers.
I specialize in Paranormal Romance, Dark Fantasy, Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Women's Fiction, however I do all the sub-genres of both fantasy and paranormal.
My goal is to create a cover that captures your future readers' attention and sells your book.
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. I cover Dark Fantasy, Paranormal Romance (PNR) (and Fantasy Romance), Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Women's Fiction (PWF) and other fantasy sub-genres, like YA, High & Epic Fantasy, Retelling, Mythology and Sword & Sorcery.
I work with both character based covers featuring your awesome characters, as well as typography covers where the title is the artwork that will attract your readers and object covers where the objects are the focus of attention.
I also do character cards for use at conferences, in reader gift packs and on merchandise.
I don't do Horror, Thrillers, Mystery, Children's books, Contemporary or Historical Romance. 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!

  • Denis Levesque
    Amazing artist! Working with Karen has been just a pleasure. Seeing the professionalism and the care she puts into her work is fantastic to see. She has a question and she messages me right away. Communication with her is the way it should be between a client and the artist. She has listened to me change things multiple times and has not batted an eye but has gone ahead and made the changes and sometimes suggesting things that even I wouldn't have thought of. I would work with Karen in the future again without any concern that my imagination would be throttled on her own work. I cannot wait to work with her on my next project.

  • Drake O'Keef
    Working on my cover with Karen was amazing. She knows the genre expectations and kept me on track. This is my book's second cover, and it's doing markedly better. My Amazon ranking has improved significantly. Turns out, you can judge a book by its cover.

    Karen Dimmick did a fantastic job for me. Her prices were reasonable, her work was phenomenal. She was fast and precise with her work I didn't have to wait months. She kept me in the loop and made me feel involved in the process. As embarrassing as it might be to say she had me Squealing like a fan girl when I saw the work she did for me. I can honestly say I'm 100% satisfied

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.
