Custom Book Covers

Book a Custom Cover
Thank you for visiting the custom design shop. Here’s how I work:
  1. Contact me using the "Book A Custom Cover" button above to discuss what you're looking for and my availability.
  2. The price is based on the number of characters you need and what formats and marketing material you'd like. (See the Prices page for details). As soon as you're ready to reserve your spot, I’ll send you my custom cover questionnaire.
  3. If you're saving a slot for a specific future date, I'll send you an invoice for $50 (nonrefundable) booking fee, that will be credited to your project when it starts. (The 50% deposit will then be due before the project starts - minus any booking fee). If the project is to start straight away (dependent on availability), I'll just send you an invoice for a 50% deposit.
  4. You'll need to fill in the custom cover questionnaire, which tells me exactly what you're after so I can create a cover you love, that fits your market and what your potential readers are looking for, as well as your awesome story.
  5. I'll send you a first draft and work with you, through up to 4 rounds of revisions, until you’ve got the cover you were looking for.
  6. I’ll then send you the final invoice and the files will be delivered as soon as the payment is received.

a few Custom Examples

Below you'll see a small selection of the custom covers I've done, the rest are viewable within the genre specific portfolios.
My latest custom work however probably won't be shown here as I only display custom covers once the book has been released, or the author gives me permission to reveal the cover.

Testimonials

  • Harper A Brooks
    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.

    Karen was a pleasure to work with and delivered a cover that was even better than I’d imagined. I will definitely work with her again and strongly recommend her to other authors!

  • Anthea Sharp
    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.
