"A talented, hard-working, creative designer who goes the extra mile (and then some)."
"Llywellyn is a joy to work with. She is truly professional and I felt as if she was as committed to my project as I was. "
"She is a wizard. To say that she nailed the tone of the novels perfectly would be an understatement. She tolerated my indecisiveness and SO many requests for minor changes, "just to check if it works". She is the best designer I've worked with, bar none..."
"It’s one thing to have an amazing designer. It’s another to have an amazing design experience. Kerry exceeded my expectations on both. Talented, intuitive, patient (!), and a delight to work with, there are seriously not enough superlatives to c..."
"I invited Llywellyn to submit a cover for my contest, as I was new and wasn't getting any submissions. I found her page and thought her work was SUPER cute. Sure enough she submitted and was the clear winner. I plan on working with her again for the rem..."
"Thanks Kerry. Just ordered a 24" X 36" metallic poster of your stained glass window. Beautiful work. And fast turnaround. "

"Amazing designer. Brilliant ideas and a pleasure to work with. Llywellyn was patient and responsive to every change and every suggestion I had. I would definitely recommend her to everyone!"

"Amazingly talented and a joy to work with. Will work with her again!"
"Brilliant, friendly, patient and all-around wonderful. Can't wait to finish my next novel just so I can hire her again. She's so good, she's almost psychic, the way she nails the tone of the covers. Would give 6 stars if it were possible."
"Great job as always!"
"Llywellyn has become my favorite designer for every aspect of book layout. This is the third project she's completed for me and it will not be the last. Excellent eye for detail, artistic possibility and overall design. In addition she is an effective a..."
"I highly recommend Llywellyn. She is extremely proficient, creative, efficient, a solid communicator, thorough and a joy to work with. I’ve now collaborated with her on several book projects (typesetting/layout design) for both ebook and print editions ..."
"This is the second layout/design book project I’ve completed with Llywellyn and it will definitely not be the last. She is creative, efficient and extremely thorough. Beyond that, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her for any ..."

"Kerry is brilliant - totally nailed the design and is a pleasure to work and communicate with. Thanks Kerry!"
"The designer was the most creative of all the designers based on the brief. She knew the trending style for best selling books and delivered a cover that received the highest votes from my own polls. I look forward to working together on other projects. "

"Perfect, thank you so much!!!!"
"Once again, Llywellyn's covers were perfect, and she delivered them with incredibly speed, professionalism, and friendliness. One of my readers recently told me: no wonder your book cover looks so great -- I've been following this artist for years! Sh..."
"Great designer! Very easy to work with."

"Kerry is a rare talent. She not only has a great artistic eye for an appealing book cover, but she is also impressive at capturing the essence of the book in her art. I was blown away by her unique idea for my cover. She brought together visually appeal..."
"Kerry did a great job, and when I asked for anal changes because I have OCD she always had a good attitude about it. I've invited her to work on the rest of my series privately. She's a great designer."
"Working with Kerry was a dream. She listened to my feedback and went above and beyond to help me when I needed last-minute adjustments to the file...a month after the project was over (oops). Needless to say, I think that in itself speaks volumes about ..."
"I have no criticisms! Llywellyn did an impeccably professional job from start to finish. I have ended up with precisely the cover I wanted for my self-published novel--better, really, than if I'd had a major publisher handling things. And Llywellyn i..."
