Overview

I believe that creating an original and outstanding cover to complement and market the incredible achievement of the author's manuscript deserves an equal amount of attention and respect. I collaborate with the author to discover the theme or mood of the work and strive to create an image that best brings out that emotion. It's not enough to have a great title. Not anymore. The cover must compete for attention and live in a world not much larger than an icon. Cutting through the clutter and being able to let the image guide the reader to the work is my goal. Other services that I can offer in addition to cover creation is production of book trailers - meant for the digitial marketplace and social media, and also audio book production. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
