I've been out of the loop for a while! Not what I intended when I changed this site up a bit, but my absence has been for a good reason. I LOVE my work and I've been busy at it!
Much of my book design work in the past year or so has been done on a part-time basis. Back in May, I made the decision to take a more full-time approach to my work though. And it's going really well!! I've gotten to work on so many cool book projects and with so many cool people.
I'm also now using Adobe Creative Suite 6 and it's taken my work to a whole new level. Learning something new should be frustrating, but I've really taken to it and - like I said - I LOVE MY WORK! It's opened up whole new avenues for the kinds of projects I can take on too.
So I can't guarantee that I'll have a regular delivery of new blog posts yet, but I'll try to do better than what you've seen (or not!) over the past couple of months. And if you have questions or topics that you'd like me to cover on the blog - please let me know!
In the meantime, I'll also be setting up a new page on my site real soon. One of my favorite things to do is design book covers - especially when there's no pressure and I just get to be creative. So that's what I've done. I've created some template cover designs that I'll be unveiling soon and putting up for sale.
Covers will be available for you to customize yourself or - for an additional fee - to have me customize for you. When covers are first released, and until the first purchase, they'll be available on an exclusive basis - meaning your purchase of the cover will take it off the market. So you'll never see anyone else with one just like it.
And please send me your ideas! Whether you'd like a custom cover for yourself or you're willing to contribute ideas just for fun, I'm always looking for new inspiration.
I really hope that these will be a hit! Either way - I LOVE creating them. So whether you decide to purchase one or just enjoy looking, I'm excited about sharing them with you SOON.
