ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Mandi Lynn works full-time as a freelance graphic designer and author. To design book covers, she works in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. She also uses Adobe InDesign for interior design and formatting. Her skill-set includes composite photography and text customization to design a personalized, original cover design. She does not design character illustrations.

How Does the Design Process Work?

A 50% deposit is required before I begin a design. Cover designs must be scheduled. The first drafts of the covers take about three to four weeks to design, but revisions can sometimes take weeks (and even months), so plan accordingly.

Stone Ridge Books has a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you aren’t happy with the initial 2-3 draft versions of the cover, I ask that you give feedback on all the draft covers in order to create a 3rd or 4th draft cover. If we’re unable to make things work, you’re able to get a 100% refund.

Please view our cover design policy with any other questions.

Want to Schedule a Design?

  1. Decide on which design package you want.
  2. Contact Mandi to reserve your design month. Start by letting her know ideally when you’d like the design process to start or when you need the cover finished by.
  3. Once a date is chosen you will be sent an invoice to pay your deposit.
  4. Fill out the Custom Cover Design Form.

Client Testimonials

"I absolutely loved working with Mandi! She understood my vision and I never felt guilty asking her to change things! 10/10 will work with her again!"

Sydney Rain, Well of Vengeance

"Mandi was easy to work with, quick to respond to emails, and a great person to work with for a first-time author because she explained everything so well and answered all of my questions. She took my initial ideas for my cover and turned it into an amazing representation of what I envisioned."

Nichole HeydenburgThe Long Shadow on the Stage

"Mandi did a great job creating the cover I asked for. I was pretty specific in what I wanted and she delivered it."

Kayla KnueThe Reckoning

"I had a lot of requests and fine-tuning details with the cover and Mandi was so patient with me and did great work to address all of my needs and make the cover exactly what I wanted! I feel so grateful that she did so many iterations with me because I love how the cover turned out and am so excited to see it on my print book!"

Zenith AislinChasing the Horizon

"I was worried this would be a long research process followed by an anxious wait on something that could turn out... well, who knows. But you made me feel confident in my decisions from the start. The price was reasonable, the questions fair, the collaboration an easy, pain free process. And the end result so beautiful! So glad I took the leap and trusted you with my baby."

Jacinta HudsonEmotional Ramblings

"I’m so proud of the way my cover turned out! Mandi worked hard to make my vision come to life and she took the extra time to find the perfect images and make sure it fit the genre standards, which both make such a huge difference! I’d definitely recommend her to anyone (and I do haha)!"

Bethany AtazadehThe Jinni Key

"Mandi is incredibly professional and welcoming to work with. The process she takes clients through is very smooth and she really goes above and beyond in her work. No revision request is too big or too small. I've loved working with her and will definitely be using her services again."

Pagan MalcolmSurviving Spring Break With Ryan Rupert

"We highly recommend Mandi. She is extremely knowledgeable and flexible to work with."

Liz Ryan & Kari Kim, A Simple Nest

"The service she provided was quick and efficient even with the small design changes that I had in mind. While she doesn't create character designs, the quality, and thoughtfulness that goes into creating a perfect design from the excerpts provided by the author are shown."

J.A. Alvara, Title: Storybook

"Mandi is wonderful to work with! She was very willing to make multiple versions of my cover when the first draft wasn't quite what I'd had in mind."

Jo Narayan, The Wraith's Bargain

"Communication was much more clear than with the other designers I had tried to work with previously. And her work is stunning! She did not disappoint. I will definitely be coming back to Mandi for more of my books, and I will be telling everyone I know about her cover design services."

Mandi Grace, Return to Sherwood

"I would highly recommend Stone Ridge Books, the quality of work and the way that Mandi steered me through the process made it a stress-free and simple experience."

Maria F. Peters, Tooth Fairy Wanted - Apply Within

"Mandi was great to work with! She was responsive, offered suggestions, and graciously put up with my many changes until it was exactly what I wanted. I wasn’t sure what I wanted before I started the process, but Mandi took what I told her and created a masterpiece! I’m so excited for the cover and believe it will vastly improve my book sales. (This cover was a redesign of my original cover.)"

Melissa Frey, The Secret of the Codex

"I had a wonderful time working with Mandi. She understood my genre, had great communication skills, and knew exactly what I needed even when I wasn’t sure how to explain it. Seeing my book come to life is a dream come true."

Rebecca K. Sampson, Ember Dragon Daughter

"I described the cover I wanted, and Mandi delivered! She created exactly what I wanted, and I'm so excited. The entire experience was so easy and painless, and I can't wait for everyone to see how great her work is! Picking Mandi to do my cover design is one of the best decisions I've made as an author!"

E. C. Woodham, The Lights Out Club

"I went into it with very little preference, but after the first drafts were given and I had lots of ideas, I'm SO happy Mandi Lynn was kind and very willing to do what I wanted!"

Angela R. WattsThe Divided Nation

"Mandi's response time was fast and alway responded within 24 hours if I had any question, plus she is very understanding and kind. Her design skills are amazing and so beautiful."
