Gene is the best. Already thinking of the cover and details for the second book in my Censored Time trilogy. He’s creative, insightful, and wonderfully honest. Highly recommend.

Gene is a master! Not only did he create the perfect book cover but he provided me with the perfect interior design. He has held my hand though this process and gone above and beyond!

I love working with Gene and plan on having him create all my other book covers. He listens to what you want and makes suggestions from his expertise. Can't wait to work on other projects with him.

Gene Mollica made a wonderful cover for my book, I couldn't stop looking at it. I knew absolutely nothing about cover design, and Gene walked me through step by step and he didn't mind that I asked him dumb questions. Gene rose to the challenge and came up with a beautiful cover. Gene is great to work with, I highly recommend him. Thank you Gene!
