Fall/Winter 2012

I've had a very busy second half of this year, so I've fallen behind in blogging! Often I think of some really cool topics to write about, but never seem to find the time to do it.

However, work has been very plentiful, so below are some recent completed projects:


Latest book trailers:

I'm working on numerous covers again this month and have a handful of projects lined up for December too. I'd like to wish all of my fellow Americans a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Midway through July! More completed work to share....

I have a couple more book covers and a trailer to share:

First up, trailer for Linda Dent Mitchell's Oribliss Castle Series:
I must thank Bronwen Harrison (of Lumina Music) once again for another fantastic soundtrack!

I've been working with Jim Graham to design two of his eBook covers:

Both can be purchased on Amazon and Smashwords. I had fun working on these!!

And on a final note, I've had a brilliant programming guru (who wishes to remain anonymous) update the coding on my website and he's added some really cool features! Take a look at Avalon Graphics! Now I need to update my content!

Two new book cover designs out now!

I've had the pleasure of designing two cover jackets for R.A.R. Clouston earlier this year and they are now out on Amazon!

No Greater Evil on Amazon HERE.
The Covenant Within on Amazon HERE.

Both titles will also be available on Kindle, Nook, Books-A-Million and at Barnes & Noble within a month.

The author's blog is HERE. His website is HERE and I will be re-designing that for him next month!

I have four book trailers to complete over the next month, along with a handful of other projects. And I will be signing on to freelance for a mainstream US publisher shortly! I'll post the details as soon as the ink dries on the contract.

Book Cover Design - Dark Horse

Book cover design for John Bartlett - to be released late this year. I will be designing the full printed jacket for this book which is a prequel to John's first book 'Chequered Justice' available now.

I enjoyed this design as the client provided several fantastic photos of his son to be used on the cover. And it ties to the world of racing!
