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!

Karen was a blast to work with on my cover, which I’ve received so many compliments for, and my character cards. She made my protagonist come to life in a way that blew my mind. Her experience, patience, and responsiveness will have me coming back time and time again.

Brien Feathers
Karen is awesome to work with. Fast turnaround time, super friendly, and incredible creativity. I first reached out to her to get a new cover for my existing book, and now I'm looking to continue working with her for the rest of the series. I would highly recommend her both as an artist and a service provider.

Evelyn Shine
I am thrilled with my cover from Arcane Covers. Karen was an absolute treat to work with and made every step of the process fun. I already have three more planned and can’t wait to see the results.
UPDATE: I haven't even gotten a chance to do all the AMS ad stuff yet, but I'm making $2 for every $1 spent and my KU reads have gone from flat line to sky rocket. I already have read through in a week. In the 5 days the ads have been live I've gotten over 2k page reads, sold 6 books and my ranking on the first book jumped from 15k to below 3k in ranks. It's been a huge improvement.

Elle Bouchard
Karen is fantastic! I love the back-and-forth process we used to design my cover. She took my ideas and turned them into a cover that was so much better than I imagined. She's easy-going and incorporated my thoughts, even when I changed my mind about things. She was also quick - the entire process took less than a day from beginning concept to finished product. I can't imagine anyone else designing my covers.

A K M Beach
We loved the artwork for our cover but realized it would take top notch custom typography to make the minimalist style truly shine. The very first conversation with Karen put us immediately at ease; we knew our work was in expert, genre-savvy hands. In addition to providing a gorgeous design, she was communicative every step of the way and delivered the final product much sooner than expected. Highly recommended, and would work with her again in a heartbeat!

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.

Evan Klein

I needed a cover not just for one book but for two. Karen spent so much time going back and forth with me during the different stages of production to make sure she captured my image of the scenes I wanted on the covers. She really knows the fantasy and sci-fi genres. And boy, can she capture the essence of a good battle scene. I would recommend her to anyone out there who needs a cover made. Oh, and did I say, her fees are very reasonable.

Sean Oswald

Karen’s work leapt up and ignited my imagination. It was as if she had been peeking at the images in my head of the main character in a series I wanted to write. The image evokes all the emotion that I could hope for. Beyond that her service was super fast, responsive to any questions I had and if I do say so, great value for the dollar.

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

Karen Dimmick was such a joy to work with. While writing Glitchworld my coauthor and I had a lot of very specific ideas as to what we wanted on our cover and how things should look and she went above and beyond in accommodating all of our requests. She made the process fun and exciting. Best of all, we ended up with a beautiful cover! 5 stars, will contact again with future projects.

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.
