Paul Klipp

Could you run an ultra marathon, more than 55 kilometres over mountains and rough terrain, six months from today?

Six months later, I was in the mountains, in the cold, at midnight, in shorts, facing an adventure I’ll never forget. Why? Because no one told me it couldn’t be done. I’m 43 years old.

Spenser Warren

Dane did a great job on the cover for my first novel, One Last Kill. The images used were very high quality and I think the cover will really be a hit with the market. Even when it took me quite a bit of time to get everything back to Dane to execute the print cover, he was ready to deliver right when I needed it. I'd highly recommend Dane to any author looking for a commercial cover for their...

Rob Adams

Dane took the time to understand the theme of the novel that resulted in a great first draft of the cover that required only some small tweaks. He also had good thoughts on where the cover might go based on books in the series. I would definitely work with Dane again!

Dane was wonderful and gave me a project that I asked for but also exceeded my expectations. His pricing was completely fair and worth the beautiful cover that I got. I am amazed and impressed with his work of how he created a wonderful cover based on my visions and description that I gave him. I would love to work with him again on my future projects.

Connor Roe Roe

Dane did a great job on the front cover. The photograph I wished to use was taken with a .35mm camera and was not digital so the resolution was poor. His technique not only hid the shortcoming but enhanced the image with a soft glow giving it a unique look. He also presented the image in black and white. This was not something I had ever considered, but it worked very well. I am very pleased.
