“Whoever said that no one judges a book by its cover is a dirty rotten liar. Or dumb. Maybe broke. The truth is EVERYONE judges a book by its cover, which is why Dan and the Team at Covermint are invaluable to Sterling & Stone. We love our art, but we need it to sell, so the professional craft and eye for commercial design that Dan and his team bring to the table are invaluable to the work that we do. We sell more books thanks to Covermint.”Sean Platt, CEO Sterling & Stone
“We consider CoverMint to be among the top indie book cover designers in the world today. High quality, fast response times, friendly and flexible. We are very happy with the covers we’ve done with CoverMint, and can heartily recommend Dan to anyone looking for a quality cover.”Miika Hannila, Founder Creativia Publishing
“My biggest fear after completing my manuscript was that my book would not get noticed among the millions of books out there. I put that first step in the hands of Dan Van Oss at Covermint Design. It turned out to be the best investment I could have possibly made. In just over three months my book went from a sales rank of one million plus to a number one best seller in Sci-Fi on Amazon. I truly believe I owe my success to the amazing cover design work from Covermint and Dan Van Oss.”Marc Stevens, Author of "First of My Kind"
“Covermint went the extra mile. Not only did they give me more versions of the cover, but they then did an audiobook cover in record time.”MJ Sewall, author of "Seven Ways to Jane"
“Most of the space exploration covers I’d found online from other designers looked like a ten year old had mashed them together on MS Paint. But the covers Dan put together for me were superb.”Jason Werbeloff, author of the "Star Phase" series
“There was one time when Dan and I worked together and we just didn’t see eye to eye on a new cover. He continued to put forward new ideas until I was happy. That has only happened once because he is usually spot-on with a cover every time!”Robin Mahle, author of the "Kate Reid" and "Lacy Merrick" series
“Covermint are professional, reliable and efficient. Dan has an excellent eye for typography and doesn’t need a dozen revisions to come up with something top quality.”Anthony James, author if the "Survival Wars" series
“Dan has bent over backwards to help me realize my vision and done other, smaller tasks for me like creating series styles, audiobooks, print books. He really looks to get the results that the client wants.”Harmon Cooper, Author of the "Feedback Loop" series
“Dan made a number of changes I requested and made great suggestions for creating the cover. He was prompt and professional every step of the way.”Scott Reid, Author of "Earth Interstellar"
My biggest fear before starting with Dan was that my ideas would be overrun by the designer’s “better ideas”. This did not happen. Instead, my basic idea was incorporated into a design that kept the best of what I had in mind and also made it better.”John Grayson Heide, Author of the "Flight of the Pickerings" series
‘Where the eyes lead the hand follows.’ This is never more so than with the cover of a novel. To forward a mind sketch (poor at best) and receive back a finished cover that is nothing more than outstanding is worth its weight in gold. Dan and his team listen to my requirements and adjust to make the finished article mine, not theirs. That is the beauty of Covermint’s professionalism. They care.Colin B Leonard, Author of “The Case of the Incessant Jack the Ripper”
“Dan far exceeded my expectations when I selected him for my novel cover designs. He was extremely easy to work with and brought the level of professionalism and graphic design talent I needed to take my novels to the next level. He provided more than I expected and made any necessary changes and tweaks I wanted. He does a fantastic job of asking questions and getting to know the story and desires of the author before he presents any samples. I was blown away by the attention to detail and how dynamite the designs were on the first attempt. I will be utilizing Dan’s services from here on out on all my novels. In fact, I have decided to ditch the novel cover I loved on my new novel and see what he can come up with. Covers sell novels, and Dan will help you sell yours.”Mike Walters, Author of "The Rogue River Incident"

“Aspiring authors, get this through your head. Cover art serves one purpose, and one purpose only, to get potential customers interested long enough to pick up the book to read the back cover blurb.
