message 1: by Janet (new)

Janet Moulton | 8 comments I need recommendations for a graphic artist to do the cover of a murder mystery I just completed. My artist for my prior novel passed away unexpectedly.


message 2: by Susan (new)

Susan (mysterywriter) | 201 comments Janet, congratulations on completing your novel, and my sympathy on the loss of your colleague.

I don't have any recommendations, sorry. Are you a member of Sisters in Crime? If yes, you might check the resources at the SinC website, or post a note to the listserv. Lots of helpful people there!

Another possibility: skim mystery book covers for something you like (and that suggests the artist could do the kind of work you envision). Then message the author and see if they'll recommend their artist.

Keep us posted, and good luck!

Tracy Weber (tracywe) | 345 comments I love the graphic artist my publisher used. Her name is Nicole Alesi (I also used her to design my web banner.) This cover is an example of her work, and her website is below. http://cargocollective.com/nicolealesi Murder Strikes a Pose by Tracy Weber

Maria Schneider (bearmountainbooks) | 191 comments If you are able to do your own or buy your own artwork, I use:

They have the best prices I've found on artwork. If you are still looking for an artist, PM me and I can recommend a couple.

She has done Hair Raiser and Writing the Cozy Mystery: How to Write a Winning Whodunitfor me. I see Mary above mentioned her, too.

Janice Peacock (janicepeacock) | 29 comments Smashword's founder Mark Coker has a list of low cost ebook formatters and ebook cover designs (many who offer pre-made covers at low prices). I was very excited to find this resource!
