I am an author based in Germany, writing fantasy stories and erotic thrillers. My fantasy novel "Anderswelt-Chroniken" (Otherworld-Chronicles) is published. The erotic thriller "Breaking you" is still "under construction" ;). The covers for both novels are made by Cover Artist Mark Freier. I simply love his work! :-) Although it's a bit spooky. So be warned if you check his website: www.freierstein.de
If any author needs information about Europe for his/her novels, don't hesitate to contact me! :)
Personal: I am the assistant to the head of legal department of an internationally operating corporation. When I am not working I am writing. And when I am not writing I am drawing! ;-) Yup!!! You can call me busy! :-) If you want to check out my drawings add me as a friend on my facebook page. I prefer drawing people and I am always looking for patterns. Btw... My friends on fb are only viewable to me.
Being quite a perfectionist I never really thought about making book covers myself. I always wanted my cover to be done by a professional cover artist instead.
But choosing a cover artist was a difficult task. Because I am based in Germany I focused on the cover artists in Europe. I viewed dozens of websites and contacted a few in Germany, Sweden, Austria, England and Italy. I also mailed to Mark Freier, a German cover artist who is working for big publishers and has been almost annually awarded for his artwork. I simply admire his work but honestly I was convinced I could never afford a cover by him. To keep it short: I could!!! In fact he made both of my covers. And the covers and Facebook banners Mark designed for me are just freakin’ awesome! The result is worth every single cent! ;-)
So please take my advice: Hire a professional! And give your story the appearance it deserves. You won’t regret it!
