Go to the 'Mapmaking request' sub-forum to look for a cartographer. Or write me an email: contact (at) fantasy-map (dot) net. I have made maps for several novels. Look at my signature for examples.
Hey guys. I am an author in the final stages of publishing a fantasy-themed novel and found this site while researching map options. A number of the cartographers here have put together really beautiful work, but what I do not know is if any of them do paid projects. I would like to have two high quality, sepia-toned maps of the geography I created within the novel for marketing material. I have hand-drawn maps of highly dubious quality to use as reference.
Please advise further.

There is a sticky in the Mapmaking request thread near the bottom of the forums which has directions to help with posting a request. There are several here who would be happy to respond and Sapiento is certainly one of the capable ones.
