I reached out to Karen because she'd done a cover for an author I greatly admire and I had hunch she would be able to create a gorgeous cover for my new Paranormal Women's Fiction series, Baking Up a Magical Midlife.
Karen hit it out of the park. The questionnaire she sent helped me translate my vision into words which she then turned into exactly the cover I wanted. The whole process was painless and smooth and the end result is so much better than I could have ever dreamed.

Karen is a pro - After dealing with some concerns over art licensing with a previous designer, I came to her. All my concerns were immediately solved, and the finished product looks better than I'd hoped, with extremely clear communication, good pricing, and a quick turnaround.
I've worked with big design studios and plenty of freelancers - Karen ranks at the top of my list.

Absolutely loved working with Karen! She’s very attentive and listens to the little details, which gives her services a personal touch and makes the final product shine that much more.
Designing the typography for my cover was a breeze and Karen’s eye for shape and colour is fantastic.
When designing my author logo she really got to the heart of my brand and personality to create something that fits me like a glove. It was a fun and thoroughly enjoyable process and I’d strongly recommend her services for any authors looking to solidify their brand in their logo.

As a reader, I bought a few books made by Arcane Covers. I loved Karen's style so much, I knew she'd be perfect for rebranding a series. She worked diligently to communicate exactly what I wanted and made adjustments I required. She had 4 new covers for me over the course of a weekend! I'm so happy with my new covers and can't wait to do cover reveals on social media

Kate Swansea
I recently had the pleasure of working with Karen to redo the cover of one of my existing books. Karen has a great eye, a lovely personality, and is very aware of current market trends.
When the new cover went live, it was as if my book had been reborn, and I saw a significant increase in sales right away. It was clear that Karen's design resonated with my audience, attracting both new readers and rekindling interest among those who had passed it by before. She is more than a designer; she is a storyteller, a brand builder, and an indispensable asset to any author.
Highly recommend!
Kate Swansea

It’s always scary contacting a cover artist - what if I don’t like it? What if we don’t get along visually? The second Karen sent me her questionnaire & followed up with her opinion, I knew I’d made the right choice. My cover is perfect, & even more beautiful than I ever dreamed - I highly highly recommend you choose Arcane Covers for your designs. It’s worth every single penny.

I am so glad I decided to hire Arcane Covers to make my custom covers for my most recent series. It truly could not have been a better experience! 11/10. Karen is exceptionally skilled, unbelievably fast, communicative, takes feedback well, and is incredibly patient, empathetic, and understanding. She was an absolute dream to work with and I loved being able to collaborate with her and workshop my ideas to achieve their best possible execution. She really took the stress out of having covers made. Now, not only do I have a couple of covers that I'm absolutely in love with, I have a new favorite artist that I will be coming to for many more in the future. I cannot recommend working with Arcane Covers enough! You will not regret it.

Karen was an absolute pleasure to work with and a consummate professional. Aside from being a wonderful visual artist she helped guide and advise me on elements to tailor to market. The cover quickly turned into a theme, then a brand, which I use for a series and all its marketing today.

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!

I can't even BELIEVE how amazing the cover came out. Karen took a simple idea and made it so, SO much more than I expected. She took so much care for the details and listened to my feedback without complaint. The cover she made me is one that I can't wait to use and display for everyone to see. You know that feeling like your heart wants to crawl out of your chest you're so excited? Her cover did JUST that.

Karen at Arcane Covers was a joy to work with. She listened to what I wanted while guiding my choices with industry knowledge. She was prompt, accommodating, and friendly as well, which made for a lovely experience. Best of all, the cover she created for my book was everything I hoped for and more!

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 ads 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.

Allyson Pauley
John Brennick
I believed in the series I am developing, so I went to Arcane Covers to ensure the covers for it reflect the level of quality. I found I got to work with Karen over Zoom and so I was able to input real-time for the most important parts of the cover designing. She is also very communicative by email.
A very important benefit of working with Karen was to learn from her marketing and genre experience! Karen understands the purposes of book covers. Combine that with digital art expertise and her dedication to the craft, and the results are superb covers fit to purpose!
This was an investment with an expected high ROI.

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.

Sean Oswald
Aaron Holloway

Karen has worked with me on several books now on typography. Her skills are top notch, her prices are reasonable, and I will continue to return as I continue to publish. If you’re looking for someone to do your typography you can't go wrong working with her.

Aaron Holloway
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.
Evan Klein
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.
D. Levesque
John Cressman

Arcane Covers Logo
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.
