Hello again, Malika. I use JD Smith for my covers. Here's the link.

My daughter Esther has done a number of covers that feature on Amazon as well as other artwork.

Also illustrations etc. Send her an email, she starts back at Uni next week, but if you're not in a hurry she will help.

Or you could simply try your local secondary school arts classes as a competition, offering a modest prize. Keep 'rm off the streets.
That's what I did when looking for a logo for a new company we were setting up. We were spoiled for choice for high quality stuff.

Set the subject matter in writing eg. character against x background, doing whatever and watch their minds explode into creativity.

I really think a book cover has to be professionally realised, even if you do go out to schools or friends for the idea, or you have your own thoughts or photographs. Poor typography and no real understanding of composition is letting so many self-published books down at the moment. It's going to hang around on that coffee table for years, so you'd better get it right.
the long and the short of it

Rob Andrews is an excellent cover designer and typesetter. He was one of R&DCo and won awards for his work. He even designed the logo for the London Design Festival.

Before you start thinking that you can't afford him, he moved with his family to India, has completely changed his life but recently got in touch to say that he's interested in taking on just this kind of work again. And he's a really lovely man.

You can get him on robbieandrews@me.com and tell him that Sarah McCartney sent you.
