BookNerdFanGirl currently operates on a 5-hour-a-day, 5 day week, with moments of sneaky art nabbed after hours.  Projects are completed within 2 weeks, however some larger projects may take longer. I will be upfront about timing during our initial talks!

Tricksy hobbitses!  There is no right answer to this question; I’ll just say this.  I love reading.  I love fangirling over books.  I love to get creative with books characters.  I am passionate about what I do, about what you do, and about being a book nerd.  I will bring that fangirl intensity & passion for your books to the artwork I create for you!

My job is to make sure you are 110% happy with it!  It is important to me that my art represents your book, characters & theme.  I will tweak, jiggle & re-work as needed until you’re happy with the artwork.

Emaaaaail please!

I provide frequent visual and noted updates via a form on my website for you to review. I use to provide you with the final artwork pieces.  You will receive an email from WeTransfer with a link to download your files. This link will be active for 7 days.

Please do! I would love to hear your thoughts on our (hopefully!) amazing experience in bringing your book to artwork! I will send you a form shortly after we complete your project, so you can scribe away any thoughts you have!

Well that would be just lovely!  I am happy to do a Facebook call or to chat in person about your design project!  If you live in Brisbane, Australia, drop me a line & we can catch up over a hot choccie to discuss!


I am typically booked between 2-3 months in advance, so please book in early!!

I will be 100% up front with you from our initial discussion.  I believe I can adapt to any style you can imagine.  If I haven’t tried it before, I’ll try it for you until I get it right!

Very few things! Namely: abusive, non-consensual, violent images.  I am comfortable painting all levels of nudity, blood, supernatural beings & sexually explicit artwork. 

Your imagination & enthusiasm! But more practically, you can head over & fill out my nifty form with as much information as you are able to provide!  Don’t stress if you can’t answer all of the questions – we’ll fill in the blanks & nut it out when we have our initial chat!

I require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking confirmation.  The remaining balance can be paid at the completion of the project, or earlier at your discretion.  Full payment details are provided on both your quote and invoice.

Payment is to be made via PayPal.  For my fellow Aussies, Direct Deposit is also an option for you.  PayPal is a secure way for you to pay for my services. Full payment details are provided on both your quote and invoice.

Book Cover Design:  Just a wee line in the Copyrights page of your book stating: Cover Design by Jemina Venter |
