    How do you find an artist for your book? I’m still on a ‘traditionally publish’ mindset, but this is something I’ve wondered.

      I spent HOURS looking at cover artist websites and ran across Marianne Nowicki. She does great work, has reasonable prices and is easy to work with.
      I would highly recommend her to any author!

I'd love to hear from you!
