Sarah Waites is the designer behind The Illustrated Page Book Design. She got her start in the traditional NYC publishing scene and holds a certificate in publishing from Columbia University. Then, she switched her skills and energy to helping indie authors succeed. Sarah is happy to work with both new and experienced authors alike.
She works primarily with fantasy book covers of all subgenres, as well as historical romance. She specializes in female-led and LGBTQ book covers, and she loves artwork with a diverse array of protagonists. Although stock photo options for POC and LGBTQ protagonists can be limited, Sarah can use DAZ Studios (a 3D posing software) to help create your character from scratch.
“Sarah’s fantastic at taking feedback, asking smart questions, and turning hazy ideas and preferences into sharp covers. I’m really glad I found her and I look forward to working with her again.”
– Skye Kilaen, queer romance author
“[Sarah is] straightforward about services and delivered as promised. [Her] responses were always timely and professional.”
