Hi all,

I'm looking for recs for a cover artist for my YA low fantasy novel. I've seen sites like Reedsy and 99Ideas, but tbh, I'm just skeptical of all of it. I finally made the decision to self-publish after wanting to go traditional for so, so many years, and I really want the cover to look great. I'm willing to pay (within reason). The thread with all the cover artist recs is pretty unwieldy, so I thought I'd start my own. I'm not looking for a super complicated cover or illustrations. I know more of what I don't want than what I want, but unfortunately, that's not terrible helpful! Sorry...I'm new to this whole self-pub thing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
