As a freelance artist, I have had the opportunity to create covers for independent authors and in partnership with a publisher. The “book cover” pages show a selection of over 200 covers I have completed. I understand the limited budget of an independent author, as it is likely similar to that of a freelance artist. I can provide a basic cost sheet to interested clients, but will work with you to quote a reasonable and fair price that will hopefully meet your illustration needs and your budget.
“Jeffrey Hayes is my go-to artist. He never fails to give me richly textured and gloriously colored book covers. Out of all my books, his covers get the most compliments. His cover art pulls people to my table."
- Nikki Nelson-Hicks, author
“Jeffrey Hayes's cover/poster art for my book series, SNOW is absolutely breathtaking. It has already garnered a great deal of interest from fans of the series as well as those who are learning about the book series now after seeing Jeffrey Hayes' art plastered all over social media and conventions around the country. Jeffrey Hayes gave me everything I wanted in this image and even a few extras that made it explode to a higher level and improved the story as I worked to fit the action of these new images into the story. He is a true collaborator in this project and I can't wait to see this cover sitting on bookstore shelves. If you're looking for cover, poster, or box art, Jeffrey Hayes gets the highest of recommendations.”
-Bobby Nash, author
"Jeff dove right into a three-book project of mine with gusto and his energy shows in everything he did. He completely understood the characters and situations because he cares enough about his work to go the extra mile and read the actual books he's covering. In all, I wouldn't hesitate to use him again--he's good people and I enjoyed working with him."
– Jim Beard, writer
“The covers adorning two fisted, double barreled action and adventure also have to tell a story all by themselves. It reaches out and takes hold of a reader by the imagination and doesn’t let go. And Jeff Hayes understands that better than nearly any other cover artist I’ve ever known.”
– Tommy Hancock, author / publisher
“From the moment I saw samples of Jeffrey Hayes’ book cover art for the very first time, I knew that I wanted him to create the covers for my novels. Jeff’s art is both rich in its color schemes and creative in its presentation, and Jeff doesn’t just take the basics of the story and run with them. He takes the time to collaborate with the author, listening to the author’s ideas as well as offering insights of his own so that the final art captures the overall “mood” of the story and its characters and draws in the readers’ eyes.”
– Glenn E. Smith, Author
“Jeffery Hayes at Plasmafire Graphics is the real deal. Not only is his work high quality, from his covers, to video presentations, he’s also a man of his word. Working with him is a pleasure and takes some of the pressure off your hands when you’re preparing to publish. Highly recommended.”
