The Smile on My Face

Cheri Reeder was referred to me to publish her non-fiction book about open love. She had beautiful, original illustrations for the interior that she also wanted to use on the cover if possible, and unique formatting of the interior to include a workbook page after each chapter. Additionally, she requested social media banners, marketing materials …

Blissbody

The most recent project for Catherine Auman is her based-on-a-true-story novel called Blissbody, which is still unfinished. Her cover design was finalized first for promotional and marketing purposes, and it was based on a design attempt she sent me before asking for professional help.

Tantric Dating

Another project with Catherine Auman, this short but delightfully powerful book was again a timely read for me as I worked on it. It was a remake of a book she had paid someone else to design, and she brought the cover art and a specific vision of her book cover and interior, which I …

Really Truly

This is another project through Green Tara Press which was a collection of autobiographies by prolific L.A. area poet, Holly Prado.

Journaling as Sacred Practice

Cynthia Gregory was referred to me by Green Tara Press to publish her non-fiction book, and it was such a great project that we have continued to work with more of her editing clients to this day.

This was a fun project for a friend that didn’t ultimately get finished because the novel itself went back into the editing/writing process after we finished the cover design. He wanted the book to look like an old, well-used composition notebook covered in tape and stickers, which we accomplished. Being unusual and creative, It’s one …

Twisted Pines

The sophomore book from Lane Baker, he had this one ready to go and we finished the entire process in record time–two weeks. He brought his own artwork again, which had to be slightly modified by the artist to accommodate the cover bleed, and I also made his social media banner to promote the book. …

Slippery Things

Lake Baker was referred to me by another author, and he was ready to go with his print and electronic book. He brought his own artwork and commissioned an entire book package which included the book cover and interior design, publication through his press (for which I designed the logo), a sales website and marketing …

A Guest at Our Table

This was the first book that Barry Zeve contracted me to work, and he had a very specific image he wanted for the cover. He wanted this specific low-quality image of a window looking out to an aquarium, behind of a table covered in the traditional Jewish sacrament items. I took the window image and …
