David Lee Dambrosio:

With the help of Vann and Maryjane, I feel like I have a professional team on my side. My book turned out beautifully. Maryjane modernized me as a writer. Thank you so very much for more than your editing. Your responses and suggestions beyond the editing were of great help. The book is so much better thanks to you and I’m a better a writer thanks to you.

“I entered one of the cover contests and promptly forgot I’d done it. I never win anything! I was delighted when I did win – and even more so when I found THE PERFECT COVER for my debut novel. The feedback I’ve received starts with the same thing – “That cover is incredible!” I can’t wait to work with Vann again.

Vann responds quickly, intuitively knows what you want, and is a complete professional. Writers needing a gorgeous cover with minimal stress, talk to Vann and let him do the work for you while you do what you were meant to do – write.”

“Vann Baker has done excellent work with several of my book covers. He has demonstrated that he is detail oriented and expedient in his delivery of all my book covers. He is my go to guy when I’m behind on my projects and need my covers completed on short notice.”

“Vann communicates very effectively and listens to all suggestions that I have regarding the design of my cover that  brings me to tears once I lay eyes upon it. He is ahead of his time in developing covers and his artistic ability makes me want to purchase a cover before I’ve written the book..”

Mia Augustine:

“My 16 year old wrote a young chapter book about bullying titled, Doxie Stands Tall. She put her heart and soul into writing and illustrated it. We worked with a local editor, who was not a book designer and we knew that. However, upon receipt of her proof my daughter was not very proud of it’s appearance.”

“After hiring Vann at Elegant Book Design, her book looks amazing. He used her art, which was important to her and made a book she can offer proudly. He also fixed some font and formatting issues.

“We really didn’t want to spend more money on this book. However, some money is worth spending. In all actuality when you compare Vann’s services, he is very reasonable.”

“Vann is also very intuitive to his client and what they want. Doxie Stands Tall has a great cover, interior, high quality images and we also now have a beautiful Facebook banner and custom bookmarks by Elegant Book Design.”
