Product Description
Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

And now for something different! Just finished up this illustrated cover based on Golden Age jungle genre comics! I'm really pleased with how it turned out - what do you think?

Thank you! it's always flattering to hear that from a fellow designer :)

In the theme of "different" covers, here's a concept that was inspired by late 1930s anti-fascist posters:

Hey all, 

Many authors have asked us at Ebook Launch to create a website for their book. I believed that a website was an extremely important marketing tool but didn't have the resources to offer it as a service - until now! Drum roll, please...  :P

We've partnered with Booklaunch (similar name, I know) to bring you an exclusive deal on their Premium Service.

What is Booklaunch?

Booklaunch was built specifically for indie authors and provides everything you need to create a beautiful website for your book. Their drag and drop page builder makes it easy to create a powerful page in minutes. The Premium service includes email capture tools, built-in SEO Metadata, custom domains, and much more. You now have the power to create dedicated websites for all your books.

You can get all that and more with Booklaunch's Premium service.

I really believe that this is a great affordable product for self published authors. I've worked out a special deal with them for Kboarders and now you can get it for 20% off for only $97/year (or $8/month if that sounds better ;) ) for their Premium service.

Click here to learn more and get the deal

Please let me know if you have any questions,

Dane

Hey guys!

A lot of you enjoyed the first time lapse video I posted (earlier in this thread), so I've created another time lapse video of one of our designs!

You can check it out here.

Please take a look a let me know what you think by commenting (and if you would like to see more!)

Hope you have a great day (especially for my fellow Canucks - Happy Canada Day!)

Cheers,

Dane
