Regular Bio (175 words)
Karen Dimmick of Arcane Covers is a Fantasy and Paranormal book cover designer.
She specializes in making genre-specific covers that sell books. She works with both indie authors and one traditional publishing house.
There are usually some of her covers in the bestsellers lists and she has also done various re-covers for books already in the top 50 of their category, that have doubled their sales.
Karen's clients love working with her because she's easy to work with, communicates well and delivers on time, like you’d expect any professional to do. Having had her own bestselling books, she has the advantage of having seen both sides of the cover design process.
Fantasy and magic have been a passion for Karen for as long as she can remember & she's been in the publishing industry for nearly a decade.
Karen believes authors should be able to give their books every possible chance to succeed, with a cover that attracts readers and meets their expectations for the genre. That’s why Karen created Arcane Covers – to help you make your book sell.
I highly recommend Karen Dimmick as a guest on your radio show or podcast. She came prepared, delivered actionable content and was able to think on her feet when I changed direction during my live broadcast radio show.
Karen also asked me questions in advance to make sure I had everything I needed from her to deliver the best content for my audience. I would rebook her in a heartbeat.

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.
