“Looking at multiple artists’ artwork, I came across Laura Lander’s page and felt her work to be unique and compelling. I wanted the cover for my book to draw others in and invoke emotion and I felt that her style was exactly that. Working with her was absolutely amazing, she made everything clear and understandable. When the time comes for me to publish again, I will undoubtedly ask for her beautiful talent again for the next cover.”
