What a brilliant opportunity!

I was approached by authors Helen Hollick and Joanna Courtney about a new project they were working on – an eBook collection of short stories from several talented and award winning authors. The 950th Anniversary of the Battle of Hastings is this calendar year, so the authors have come together to celebrate by writing nine stories of alternative history. What if Harold had won the battle? So many options for the writers to play with and what an exciting project! I was honored to be asked to design the cover for such a prestigious group. The official blog for the project is HERE and you can find the page on Facebook HERE. Continue reading

Technical Difficulties

Greetings Visitors and Friends. During a particularly busy time here at Avalon Graphics, I have suffered a computer failure and thus I am forced to close down production on all work until I can resolve the issue or replace my design computer. Hopefully I’ll be back up to speed within a week, and I apologize for any lag in email responses in the meantime. For those of you whom I’m either currently working with or scheduled to begin working with shortly, I will remain in touch and do my best to keep to promised deadlines.

Thank  you for your patience during this difficult time.

A Belated Happy New Year!
