March 2015 - Spring will soon be upon us and I couldn't be more happy to see warmer weather! Spring is also the busiest time of the year in book publishing, thus I've been inundated with design projects from both new and returning clients. Thank you for the opportunities and for your patience during these hectic days. I now offer pre-made eBook covers for sale through Ready Covers - my portfolio.

 

February 2015 - I am looking forward to working with several clients in February, including new client Jenny Yacovissi. I will be producing two book trailers and multiple new book covers this month, so I continue to manage a full production schedule. I completed several new book covers in recent weeks, so do take a moment to review the 'Featured' titles here on the home page (left side) and new works in my portfolio. Happy Valentine's Day!

 

January 2015 - Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year
I trust that everyone enjoyed the holidays. Now it is time to return to designing and I have numerous projects lined up! I look forward to working with several new clients as well as continuing to collaborate with many longtime clients as we begin 2015 together.

 

December 2014 - Seasons Greetings!! The holidays are upon us and I shall be taking much needed time off in December to spend quality time with my family. I have completed a new book trailer for Helen Hollick to be released the fifth of December, so be watching for that on social media. I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, a Blessed Winter Solstice and a Happy New Year!

 

November 2014 - Winter is closing in and I'm wrapping up all outstanding projects in anticipation of the holidays. Thank you to Wendy Jones, J.M. Erickson, Cynthia Miller, Toby Moseley and Diane Haeger for our recently completed projects. I am working on a new book trailer for Helen Hollick to be released the first of December and finishing up a few other projects as well. Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans on the 27th of the month!

 

October 2014 - Fall has arrived - love the cooler weather as the leaves begin to change to vibrant Autumn colors! I remain extremely busy on numerous projects. Thank you to David Freedland, Carol Edgerley, J.M. Erickson, Emma Gray, David Ebsworth, and Debra Tracy for our recently completed projects. And I am excited to be working with new clients Wendy Jones and Diane Haeger this month! With such a strong production schedule this Autumn - also considering the holidays which are coming up fast - I will not be accepting any new projects until January of 2015 so I can take care of all of those I've already committed to over the next couple of months.

 

September 2014 - I have been hard at work on numerous projects. Many thanks to Carol Edgerley, J.M. Erickson, Geoff Green, Toby Moseley, Debra Tracy, Wilkie Martin and Pauline Barclay (to name a few) for your patience in recent weeks. And I look forward to new projects with Helen Hollick, Cynthia Miller, Andrew Wilson, Emma Gray and others this month. Again, please be sure to follow Avalon Graphics on Facebook and Twitter for more regular updates and fun, inspirational posts! Bring on Autumn!!

 

August 2014 - House move was a success...at last. Thus slowly getting back into design projects this first week of August. Thank you to all of my clients who have so patiently waited for me during this hectic time. I'm currently working with several clients so I'll have new designs to share with the next update! In the meantime, please be sure to follow Avalon Graphics on Facebook and Twitter for more regular updates and fun, inspirational posts!

 

July 2014 - News Flash! Avalon Graphics will be moving and therefore internet access and availability will be limited this month. Please expect slow response times to all emails and inquiries. I appreciate your patience during this hectic time. Thank you! I will be back to work full time in August and I do have a bunch of exciting projects already lined up! Happy Fourth of July to all of my fellow Americans!

 

June 2014 - Summer has arrived and I continue to be blessed with a multitude of inquiries for design projects from both new and existing clientele. I will find myself in the position of having to be offline for a couple of weeks either at the end of June or the early part of July while moving house. So if things go quiet around here soon, I'm just buried in boxes!

 

May 2014 - Another busy month ahead and May is starting off with a bang - literally - as my hard drive has crashed! I have backups thankfully, but I apologise for any delays this month while I migrate to a new design computer over the next few weeks. I have recently completed a multitude of promotional/book trailers, so please check those out on YouTube or my Video Works page. I have also completed a handful of eBook designs that will hopefully be released shortly. Welcome to new clients Carol Edgerley, Debbie Tracy, and James Mercer!

 

April 2014 - More new projects to release and more new clients signed as a rush on spring publications continues. I'm grateful and so very thankful for all of the interest in my design work! At present, all new projects are being scheduled at least eight weeks out due to an extensive production schedule and a personal matter that has begun to overshadow the business. I thank everyone in advance for their patience and understanding during this hectic time in both my professional and personal life. Looking far into the future, I'm tentatively planning on attending the Historical Novel Society's North American Conference being held in Denver, Colorado next year!
