It's now well-known among authors that you *can* judge a book by its cover. It can make the difference between rejection and acceptance, whether it's a reader, a publisher, or a promoter. Here's a quote from one of my customers: "Dan just did a cover for me and I was very pleased. Prompt and professional. This was a title on my backlist which was in need of an updated cover. I had submitted it to RobinReads back in late March for a promo, but was rejected. I resubmitted this week with a new cover and was accepted immediately." - Dave B.
I'd like to help you make your book be the best it can. I love working on covers for all genres, but especially Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Thrillers.
Your project will get exclusive attention. Can’t help it; I'm a detail addict. I won’t stop until every last flare, grunge and text tweak in your design are perfect, whether it’s a pre-made cover, a redesign for an old title, or full custom package.
I've had 20 years of digital design experience, first with a large music company, where I handled the graphic design and layout of their national music education catalog, and next with a large church, where I designed everything from logos to CD covers to weekly series graphics. I also have extensive marketing and web design experience, and I'm a writer myself, so I know the necessity of having a well-presented brand that includes a top-notch, genre-specific cover.
