For free?

Because there are lots of artists who would be glad to do it for money...

You might take a look at Deranged Doctor Design.

Their covers are good, and their most expensive package is under $250.

Another site is: http://www.selfpubbookcovers.com

Search google for "premade book covers" and you'll find a bunch of sites that sell covers at reasonable prices. One thing to remember is that your cover is one of the most important things in marketing your book. It should stand out in a thumbnail (size used in the Amazon lists). It should clearly portray the genre of your book (urban fantasy, epic fantasy, etc.) so the reader will be swayed to click the link and read your blurb.
