It's a mystery- Something is wrong. As Lance Underphal pads softly across the cold flagstone, he hears her weeping. She is on her knees, hunched over in the middle of the room, her back to him, facing the dark fireplace. Something is very wrong. Lance wants to rush to her, but can't. In a hoarse whisper, he says, "Callie?" She lets out a mournful wail from deep within as she turns, their infant son in her arms, blue and still. He reels from the blow. How can this be? They don't have a son.

KBoards special: 20% off all cover services if you mention you found me through the KBoards.

**Prices to increase in January 2017 - Book now to get the current pricing!**

Another World Designs is officially open for business!

I've been doing my own work in graphic design for nearly twenty years now, and I've decided to start taking on clients. I've already worked with Rachel Medhurst redesigning the ebook and print covers for her Reapers Trilogy (read her testimonial here). I also did the covers for Give Up the Ghost and Those Who Lived in my signature. And I've put together a bunch of sample covers to give you an idea of the range of styles I can work in. See a few of my favorites below, and go to my portfolio to check out all of them*.



To request a cover, just head over to my contact page and fill out the form there. Mention you found me via the KBoards so I'll know to give you the deal price. I'll follow up with any further questions I have, and we can begin the design process.

I welcome questions here on this thread or via the email on my contact page. Looking forward to working with some of you!

*If you're interested in adapting one of my sample covers to your use, just let me know what you'd need changed and we can discuss a price.

Edit: Many new covers added to the portfolio. Other genres I've worked in that are not yet public to be added: Adult contemporary romance (sweet and billionaire), adult urban fantasy (superhero and mythical), YA contemporary and science fiction, and typography for a graphic novel. One of my specialities is creating covers to match earlier books in a series if you can't work with your original designer--see the new portfolio section for examples.

Wow, that went fast! All five $50 spots are now filled. However, I'm still offering a 20% discount to KBoards members--just mention you're from here when you make your request, and I'll apply that to your total.

Thanks for the enthusiasm!

Megan just finished the first of several covers in a sci fi romance series. She is super easy to work with, responsive and friendly, and put up with all my changes. She also had a quick turnaround on every change.

I love the first cover, and I know I'll love the rest. :)

It was great working with both JR and Cate, and I'm looking forward to seeing those covers out in the world. :)

BTW, for anyone interested in getting a cover, I'm currently booking for mid-June.

I think everybody ought to use Megan's cover design service and here's why:  I gave her an extremely tough job in designing a cover for a nonfiction/scholarly book.  The title and subtitle had just too many words in them but none could be cut.  Megan found clever ways to manage all those words thru good typography set on an evocative background with a single simple but distinctive image.  Her solution turned my cover problem into something sharp and appealing.  Just as soon as I can, I'm going back to Megan to convert the ebook cover into a CreateSpace cover.  Yay for Megan! :)

Megan is currently working on covers for my upcoming YA series and I can't recommend her enough. Aside from being efficient and affordable, she went above and beyond capturing my vision. I had to order the next two covers right away!

Another recommendation from Megan here! I needed to update my YA series because my cover artist wasn't really communicating for book 3 and the covers didn't fit the genre as well as they could besides. Megan did new covers for The Vengeful Half and The Stolen Heart (currently in Amazon limbo, but I'll update the signature soon). She was great to work with, communicative, fast, affordable, and really helpful with showing me lots of mockups with different models, fonts, effects, etc. She'll definitely stay on my list of designers to consider in the future!

Bumping this thread for three reasons:

There are a whole bunch of client covers now in my portfolio! They don't represent everything I've worked on--I've done adult contemporary romance and urban fantasy, YA contemporary and science fiction, and typography for a graphic novel that aren't yet public--but they'll give you an idea of my style and range.

I've added a new section to represent one of my specialities: designing covers to match an existing series when you can't work with your original designer for whatever reason.

And I wanted to give you all a heads up that now that I have all that client work under my belt, I'm going to be raising my prices in the new year. If you want to get the current pricing, book by the end of December! As long as you put down the deposit, I can reserve a spot in my schedule for you for whenever you're ready to get started, if you're not quite ready yet.

Looking forward to working with more awesome KBoaraders! :)

I thought I'd stop by and give a big shout-out to Megan. She designed the cover for my SciFi Kindle Scout candidate, Aspiria Rising. As a novice in need of a cover, I was fortunate to have someone with both skill and patience. I would highly recommend her!
