Just for future reference, who can recommend a good cover artist and do you have links to his/her work?

They have a list on smashwords as well as other free resources for self publishing

Mark also has some good free eBooks on self publishing.

Smashwords also distribute to all eBook sellers other than Amazon and Google Playstore.

CreateSpace and Lulu for paperbacks that any bookshop can order. CreateSpace can help with covers and are average priced. They are part of Amazon.

Me! I'll do some cover art for you for free, and won't be insulted if you don't use it. Just send me a PM, and let me post a thread about it :)

You'll see examples of what they have done. Then judge for yourself. More reliable than testimonials.

I just got my Cover for my full length novel back and I'm in love with it. I used http://coversbychristian.com and plan to use him for the rest of the series. He has an excellent portfolio and does a great job of meeting genre expectations.
