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.

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

Updates:

But it is a blessing to be in such high demand these days and I thank all of you who have commissioned me for design services during these busy times.
