Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

$350 Cover Book Illustration by Alberto Besi
« on: April 30, 2017, 07:19:16 AM »
Hello everyone!

My name is Alberto and I am a freelance artist.

My working experience is rich in various kinds of collaborations: going from comics and concept art to the illustrations for board games and videogames.
In this last year I had the opportunity to work as an book cover artist with different authors as Samuel E. Green, Daniel Polansky, Andrea Atzori, and  the publishing house Acheron Books.

What I'm constantly looking for, when working with my clients, is to create genuine and totally original covers.
What I can promise you is quality, with a mutual respect for your work and your deadlines.

To get started, sent me a proposal by email! Feel free to ask any questions you might have. I always try to reply quickly.

Email: alberto.besi@gmail.com
Website: (for now, it is not online. itll be as soon as possible)

Anyway, you can check my online portfolio, here: https://www.artstation.com/artist/albertobesi

My rates are $350 for front cover.
$150 extra for typography / graphic design
$150 extra for wraparound cover

(This is just a prediction. The price may be higher or lower according to your needs)

That's great work. I think I saw some Rome in there, too.

Good luck with your site. I bookmarked the thread.

Great work. I'm seeing most of your current portfolio is in fantasy. Do you do other genres as well (specifically sci-fi, with spaceships etc.)?

Wonderful artwork.


Question: Do you ever subcontract out your illustrations? I'm a designer and sometimes I'm in need of a specific illustration - always on the lookout for fresh talent.

I love your work!! It's right up my alley of art style I would seek out. I don't have any book at the moment in need of a cover but will definitely bookmark this.

Normally not. But depends on what illustration you'll need. : )

Excellent work, Besi. I love SFF and currently writing Science Fiction, your Sci-Fi work is compelling. I'll bookmark for my next series (LitRPG). Thanks for sharing!
