About Derek Murphy

Hey there! I'm a philosophy dropout and book cover designer with a PhD in Literature. After spending a decade as a starving artist, I vowed to create the life of freedom my restless spirit demands. I covet a cabin full of cats, where I can write young adult fantasy novels and do a few editorial critiques to pay for my cake addiction. Sometimes I live in castles. FREE GUIDE: Book Marketing is Dead.


  1. I downloaded this. It is awesome! Derek, I have a question. I was looking at your book cover called Dark Branches and I was wondering where you got the cover model from. I could use her for a future advertising campaign. I looked everywhere including Deviantart, but came up with nothing.

  2. thanks for the coverage, Derek!

  3. trying to find your book cover design software link??
