Keep writing my darling authors, because I love reading your amazing books. The more novels I read of the authors I work with, the more confidence I have of how awesome, powerful and high quality the self-publishing industry is!

 
   

Hey, that's MY cover in there!  :) 

I just can't recommend Scarlett enough.  She is amazing.  I'm looking forward to getting my next book done so that I can see what she'll design for me next!

Hey guys. I know many of you have probably seen me trundling around Kboards peddling my and Scarlett's wares, oh and talking about writing. (I do that sometimes too!) I thought I would post some of my favorite covers that I've designed with Scarlett since I've started working with her. I really had a blast doing all of them. They were all very different.

I LOVE those eyes!  That's what I wanted for my TAC cover, but I couldn't find anything like that.  Oh, my!

Scarlett Rugers is a fabulous designer and a delight to work with. She designed a stunning cover for my novel, "Love Is the Punch Line" (published by Moonshine Cove in April 2018). Highly recommended.

You are awesome Kathleen! It was a pleasure to work with you.

For anyone interested, Kathleen's book is super quirky and I loved designing it. Here's the result, and click on the cover to follow through to Kathleen's page:

I can't say enough about Scarlett's work. She helped me out of a bind while in the midst of a complete overhaul and time crunch for my novel The Truth About Fairy Tales (Matchmaking Agency). Her work was clean and professional.  If you are in need of a new cover I would recommend her services.  I'm not certain how to post a picture of my cover in this reply, but you can see it in my signature line.

Hi guys!

I'm really excited to see if there's any interest for this.



I'm offering one-on-one teaching/consulting services to help you improve your book cover design skills.

IDEAL FOR AUTHORS WHO:
  • Have or don't have graphic design experience
  • Haven't published yet but want guidance about designing your book cover
  • Have published a book, or many books
  • Are looking to make the big bucks, and learn how to design your own amazing book covers
  • Have an existing cover to change or tweak
  • Want someone to brainstorm off, specific to what YOU need
  • Want to earn a living from self-publishing

My work has helped shift authors from dabbling writers to full-time self-publishers. I will advise, teach and guide you into how to improve your book cover. You can take that information with you and tweak every book cover you design from then on.

  • No minimum hours
  • No ongoing obligation
  • Order hours as you need, rather than signing up for bulk
  • Learn skills and techniques about good design and how to improve your cover

You can find out more here: http://www.thebookdesignhouse.com/learn-how-to-design-your-own-book-cover/


And here is some of my latest work  :)
