What clients say about me:

“D. L. Keur is a renaissance woman for our times and an accomplished author in her own right. She also channels her considerable talent into designing book-cover art for other authors. Since she created the amazing cover-art for my Jena Halpern novel, Blood-Red Mist, I don’t approach new book-cover art without her. She has an innate design sense that brings together all the essential elements into a stunning work of art that grabs readers’ attention while telling a story—perfect. A joy to work with, I can’t recommend her enough.”Michael Allan Scott, best selling author featured on the NBC Daytime Show, 2019.

I have a certain look to the books covers I have for my mystery series, but as I finalize my most recent book — women’s genre — I needed something very different. I found Dawn Keur, who doesn’t do “canned” covers, but brings conceptual design to every project to make them stand out. Best yet? She works well with authors to bring a vague idea into something extraordinary and unique. And she’s affordable!” —Laura Belgrave, 2020

One of the easiest designers to work with I’ve used yet.  Her work inspires me to write more.” —Becky Smith, 2019

“I swear this woman has the patience of a saint.  I didn’t know what I wanted, but she kept working with me at no extra charge until she came up with something perfect.” —Thomas R., 2019

Product Enquiry

A professional graphic designer since the late nineties, I retired for awhile to take care of my aging mother.  Mom passed, and I’m now picking up the reins again.

I build book covers for mainstream, literary, horror, paranormal, thrillers, suspense, mystery, crime, science fiction, dystopian, and non-fiction genres.  My natural style is minimalistic, conceptual, and abstract, using enigma, light, and shadow to best advantage to generate intrigue and stimulate reader curiosity, interest, and, yes, sometimes dread.

Images & Dreams, a book cover design by D. L. KeurI’ve done a lot of custom work, and most of it is recreating what the author visualizes in their mind rather than my own designs.  A few times, though, my designs win out.  Such is the case with the cover for the book Images & Dreams by S. Bradley Stoner.

Here’s a sampling of some of my covers.
