Stuart LawsonCover ArtI've completed over 700 marketing related design projects in 2010. Now in 2011 I am helping authors with their ebook covers and trying my best to work with them on an affordable price for very high quality. I try my best to provide what they want for the cover that will also help them market their book. That usually begins with simplicity and large readable fonts for ebooks.

Joey OnoratoOnoratoartdesign@yahoo.com Art & Design - Traditional illustration and design for ebook and print. A 'modern vintage' style perfectly suited for surreal, sci-fi, horror, mystery, YA fiction.  Illustrations are created using oil paints on canvas in several thin layers to provide depth and form.
"My editing of manuscripts covers a wide spectrum. I look for and correct continuity, sentence structure, punctuation, storyline and characters. Genre's include mystery,(cozy and not-so-cozy) cozy romance, light-hearted paranormal and SciFi. I do not work with demonistic, satanistic, or sexual content.
I charge by the page (50 cents per) in Microsoft Word using ""Track Changes"", double-spaced, Times Roman size 12 with 1"" margins. I can usually complete the first edits of a book of about 50,000 words within three days, at which time I send back to the author and then request that it be sent back to me for one more edit to catch anything that gets moved or changed incorrectly during the accept/decline changes. I can also work with Adobe, although I have read-only and can only suggest changes rather than show them in bullets.
I keep track of books coming in and going out through a timeline and request a heads-up with as close as possible of an ETA so I can better serve my customers."

Elizabeth!bookspublishing/c1pffI've done both book and print work (covers and interiors), as well as book advertising and promotion. I think the cover of an ebook should be every bit as compelling as a print version — making the best use of its smaller viewing size. I try to strike a good balance between what I do and what authors can afford, and will work hard to see that we're all happy with the price and the results.
