Carly Strickland is a freelance book designer and digital illustrator based in Birmingham, Alabama, and she is addicted to Diet Coke. She is very small and probably has a complex about it. She prefers pet rats but supposes her step-cat will do.
She’s part owner and art director of Matter Deep Publishing, an independent publishing company, and has produced three picture books. She got her start designing covers for Matter Deep, and found there's nothing quite as satisfying as making a book beautiful. She is aware of the challenges that come with indie publishing and can fill in any info gaps authors may have about the process. She's very experienced with print on demand, especially CreateSpace. Carly knows how much love and work writers put into their books. She wants to put as much love into their covers.
I am currently not excepting commissions.
