TESTIMONIALS


I’m not sure how I found Jenny Q, or if she found me some number of years ago. What I am sure of is that my books would not be as successful as they are if not for her. I often come to Jenny with ridiculously vague ideas and visions, and somehow she manages to unravel my thoughts and give shape to my ramblings. Jenny is professional, determined, and talented, and I am enormously grateful that I am able to work with her. ~Holly Bush

Working with Jenny on cover designs has been wonderful. She possesses a great gift for turning initial ideas into reality, producing cover art that is not only compelling but fully reflective of the novel's content. She is professional, responsive, and always pleasant in our communications. I value and rely upon her judgment and expertise. The covers she's created for my books always receive compliments and have far more impact than I ever imagined. ~Margaret Evans Porter



Jenny went above and beyond as my cover designer. Not only is she talented as a designer, but she is patient, polite, and easy to work with. I felt completely comfortable giving her my opinion on design and telling her what I did and didn’t like. Further, her clients are her top priority. She spent countless extra hours helping me to work through several snafus with my printers. She made phone calls on my behalf and even worked on a holiday weekend to help me meet a deadline. I couldn’t have asked for a more talented or professional designer, and I am so grateful that I found her.  ~Stephanie Carroll



Don't let anyone tell you cover design doesn't matter. The beautiful covers Jenny created for my novels have made such a difference in sales. With its new cover, sales of my novel, Hope of Israel, jumped 300%. Jenny was so easy to work with and her work is amazing. ~Patricia O'Sullivan




Jenny has been my editor and cover designer for both my novels. Each cover has done exactly what a cover should do: provoke interest, reflect the theme of the story, and catch the eye. During the design process, Jenny is creative, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her work. ~M.K. Tod

What you want when you finish writing a book is a cover that says “Pick me up. You’ll want to read what’s inside.” When we were wrapping up, Sebastian’s Way, my first book, I had some pretty biased ideas about the cover. Jenny Q disagreed. She knew the book as thoroughly as I did, having been its final copyeditor as well as cover designer. She saw at once what we had to emphasize, and she worked with me through six or seven drafts. The results blew me away. The cover turned out to be both meaningful and dramatic. I’m sure it’s what attracts people to pick up the book and read it. ~George Steger



Jenny has an amazing talent at understanding what I need when it comes to the design of a jacket cover. I give Jenny my initial concept and she works her magic. Not only is the finished design what I envisaged, but her help and support with my questions along the way make Jenny a true professional. I would use no one else now to design my covers. ~David Cook




I was extremely impressed with Jenny from start to finish, on all fronts: her prompt and thorough replies, the fantastic initial mock-up cover designs, the speed with which she implemented my requested tweaks, her meticulous attention to detail, her very reasonable pricing, and the superb quality of the finished product. I will most certainly be reaching out to Jenny again for future projects! ~Nicholas Floyd




Jenny expertly interpreted my requirements to design a unique book cover that I absolutely love and that gives tone and gravitas to my historical novel. She is professional, encouraging and a great communicator. I have had so many positive comments on my cover that I can’t wait to finish my next novel and engage Jenny’s creative skills again. ~Emma Boling




Jenny did a spectacular job designing the cover for my debut novel, Battle Hymns. I contacted her with little forethought into the design, essentially giving her a blank canvas, and she created the best cover I could've wished for! I'm very picky about good book covers, and her design exceeded even my lofty expectations. She's easy to work with, very flexible, and if I self-publish again, she'd be the first person I contact. ~Cara Langston


As an indie historical fiction author working on a debut novel and the first book of hopefully many, I was looking to find a cover designer who will form part of my publishing team and that I will be able to continue to use into the future. I discovered Jenny online, and I love that she is a historical fiction enthusiast working as a book reviewer, cover designer, and editor. Her cover design portfolio speaks for itself and the diversity is incredible. Jenny was responsive, professional, made the cover design process thoroughly enjoyable, worked up fantastic options, and no tweak was too small. The finished cover was beyond my expectations. ~Fleur Goldthorpe


It’s been a pleasure working with Jenny. She is talented and helped me get the "look at me" book cover I so desired. The best part about working with Jenny is that she truly listens to what her clients want. The concept of my fantasy novel, The Stone of the Tenth Realm, was not an easy one. I asked her do a cover to highlight a young woman who, while escaping a Nazi concentration camp, stumbles into a parallel but magical world. Seeing the cover for the first time astounded me. Jenny captured the perfect look. ~Eva Gordon


I am so happy that I found Jenny Q. Not only did she copyedit and proofread my novel, she also designed the most beautiful book cover. I receive compliments on my cover from everyone as soon as they see it! I highly recommend Jenny Q. You will not be disappointed! ~K. Willow






After providing a short synopsis of my historical novel about a 12th century pilgrimage from England to the tomb of Saint James in Spain, Jenny Q found the perfect couple for the cover of  Pilgrim Footprints on the Sands of Time. She ingeniously incorporated an ancient stone bridge as a backdrop, and subtlety included symbols such as the scallop shell and shooting star, all integral to the story. I have no hesitation in recommending Jenny Q for an efficient and professional cover design for your book. ~Syl Nilsen


I was a day away from signing with another designer for my two novels when I chanced upon Jenny at Historical Editorial. Straightaway, I knew—she was the one. Something about her work resonated, and within a month she’d designed two stunning covers. You know you have a great cover designer when you can’t decide on the final mockup. I’ve received so many compliments on Dark Angels Prey and The Astral Shore that I asked her to design my Twitter and Facebook banners. Kudos, Jenny! ~Elizabeth Genovese


Professional! Creative! Perfection! These are just a few of the words I would attribute to the work of Jenny Quinlan’s book covers. Her ability to truly capture the essence of my story in cover art is unsurpassed! As a rookie to the self-publishing industry, Jenny’s patience through the whole process made my first experience exceptionally great—so much so that I’m writing another book, and she is my choice for designing the cover! Jenny really knows the “indie” publishing territory; having her on my team has made all the difference in my self-publishing experience. ~Leah Zieber


I had a very specific idea for my cover (and definitely no headless heroines), and although I blurted it all out to Jenny in one stream of consciousness, she was not in the least daunted.  In fact, on budget and on deadline, Jenny produced a number of creative designs for me to choose from, and I fell in love with one from the very start. A few tweaks and some intense discussions on typography, and Jenny produced a fabulous cover design for The Lady of the Tower.  She also whipped out web mastheads and Facebook and Twitter banners--and when I was very particular about a few small design ideas, she was incredibly collaborative and cheerful in implementing my ideas. I've had so many compliments about the design, and I'm so happy with how the book turned out. ~Elizabeth St. John


I have truly enjoyed working with Jenny! Her creative designs were spot on with what I had envisioned for my book covers. She was always prompt with her responses to any questions or concerns I had and even had both covers completed ahead of schedule. Thanks again for all the hard work, Jenny, and for making my visions come to life! ~ Lauren M. Ludwig



Jenny Q created the absolute perfect cover for my book, then crafted the perfect banners (and bookmarks!) to go with it. It is almost impossible to be original using a period portrait, but somehow she put together a unique arrangement that continues to take my breath away. She is a genius and I am so glad to have found her – I can’t wait to see what she does with my NEXT book! ~Janet Wertman




Jenny's work on my covers has been exceptional. She is great at guiding the cover toward the right feel and message for the story while taking into account the author's  preferences and desires. You can't go wrong with Jenny by your side! ~Kathleen Shoop





After using several cover designers, I finally found the perfect one, Jenny Quinlan! She not only gets my settings and characters but also understands the themes and deeper meaning of my fiction. I love and admire her powerful covers that portray ethnic images with a brilliant color palette and bold compositions. Her cover of my story collection, Chance Meetings, was nominated for Da Vinci award. Since then she has designed covers for my two novels, The Immigrant Wife and The Last Suttee. Each one is equally stunning! I’m fortunate to have found Jenny, and thank her for creating outstanding book covers! ~Madhu Bazaz Wangu
