These covers are one of a kind. I use a combination of stock and purchased images, plus a healthy sprinkle of my own personal photographs that I have “dressed up” for your use. I find it so much fun to take pretty pictures and see how I can make them work for you in your books.
If you see one that is “almost” what you are seeking, let our wonderful Artistic Director, Rob know, and I can customize it for you. Or, I can create a completely custom cover from a description. Rob will help you navigate through the procedures to request this. He is very helpful!
