David and I have worked together for a while. This time, David created a publisher logo and updated a kindle cover for paperback. He came back with graphics that were pretty finished products, requiring only minor tweak requests on my part.

I couldn't be more thrilled to work with David on my cover. He submitted his designs without delay. When I asked him to modify his original concepts, he did so promptly and created an excellent design that will be my book cover. If you are looking for a cover for your book, David is the man for you. He is a professional who takes his work seriously. I highly recommend him.
