book cover portfolios

I work in Fantasy and Paranormal genres. To help you see covers in your genre, I've created individual genre-specific portfolios for you to look at. This will help you know whether I'm the right designer for you, as you'll be able to see covers that work in your genre, without distractions from covers in unrelated ones.
To access the genre portfolio you wan to see, simply click on the name of the genre. To see my full portfolio, simply scroll down.
I create covers for the following genres: I don't do Horror, Thrillers, Mystery, Children's books, Contemporary or Historical Romance. For anything else, feel free to ask me.
I also do fantasy character cards, for use at conferences, merchandise and marketing materials like bookmarks.

    I fell in love with one of Karen's premade covers during an event and loved it so much, we made it into an epic trilogy, one I'm excited to release. Karen is so easy to talk to and very talented. She'll make your amazing story the cover it deserves.

    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.

    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.

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.
