Learn how to design a killer book cover

from an award-winning industry professional.

These sessions are tailored specific to your needs.
You tell me what you want to learn, and I'll show you.

Improve your cover.
Boost book sales.

My work has helped shift authors from dabbling writers to full-time self-publishers.

With a single change to your book cover, you can catapult your career into best-selling success like my clients Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi, G. J. Walker-Smith and Rachel Schurig and Farah Oomerbhoy.

Sign up for a one-on-one book design consulting session. For one hour we'll talk exclusively about your book, your cover, and I'll teach you how to improve it.
