Monika was outstanding. She took the time to really understand the feel I was after in the book cover and translated that into a look that no other designer had offered. It was funny seeing several other designers suddenly start to copy her idea, but she had it nailed from the beginning. She was very responsive and diligent to my questions and suggestions and refined what I needed. She also offered two other very compelling designs that were my #2 and #3 choices. My ONLY suggestion would be that she get a better feel for the layout options for the back cover in order to better refine what she offers initially for the back. But that would not stop me from highly recommending her to others and I will definitely be inviting her to my future book cover contests.
