R. Leonia Shea
Writer of fun, quirky urban fantasy novels with witches, legends, and a sarcastic great horned owl. I'm looking for a designer I can potentially work with to develop covers for my three series (all fun fantasy books - so far).
Magic can lead to great rewards...or terrible consequences. After a series of disastrous interviews, Dr. Arienne Cerasola has finally been offered a job: Master Huan, a mysterious Chinese Healer, will pay her to find a mythical healing tree. That shouldn't be too hard for an archaeologist who knows a thing or two about magic. While on the trail of the tree, Arienne is reluctantly partnered with a shady shaman who seeks the same prize. When they encounter the ridiculous antics of the mythical trickster spirit Coyote, suddenly Arienne isn't on a supernatural assignment as much as in a magical mess. With her future career on the line, she's determined to be the only one to leave the Pine Barrens of New Jersey with a branch from the coveted tree - provided she doesn't accidentally kill herself in the process. In Elementary Magic, the first book of the Relic Hunter series, R. Leonia Shea blends urban fantasy with archaeology in a quirky, fun read.
Mainly women 30+ in the US and UK who are looking for a light, fun read about second chances, magic, and starting over.

Rebeka was awesome to work with - her design concept was presented quickly and she nailed it off the brief on the first go! We discussed changes and the design improved every time with little details and nuances that fit my fantasy-themed book cover perfectly. She was knowledgeable and professional and provided insight which made the project even better than I hoped. I will definitely work with Rebeka again in the future!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
