DESIGN BOOK COVER
I’m Alexandre, a graphic designer with over 16 years of experience both as a designer and art director. All my professional life I have been used to to deal with different types of projects, but now I’m putting all my experience in Book Cover Design and I’ve been designing covers for authors from all over the world.
"YOU CAN'T TELL A BOOK BY ITS COVER."
In fact, now more than ever, you have to do just that. Instinctively, people are drawn to good design and an appealing book cover will always stand out. In today’s market, good is not good enough. A great book cover attracts readers, captivating them as it as it ﬁres their imagination and makes them want more. Today, independently published books not only must compete with other Indie books, but they must go up against huge traditional publishing powerhouses too. To rise above the competition, to cause readers to reach for your book and not another, a strong statement and forceful branding is required. In short, your book’s cover is the best merchandising vehicle there is. Designing outstanding cover art is challenging work. It is what I do best and enjoy most. To create the best visual metaphor for your book, the correct typography, colors and images is critical. But there is more.The design elements selected must be aesthetically pleasing for both the print edition and for the thumbnail's smaller sizes. That is diﬃcult, but entirely possible if executed with care. However, the cover must look good and be good in order to fascinate readers and cause them to choose your book. For me, nothing is more enjoyable and rewarding that working with bright, creative people. In collaboration, we will turn your concepts into a great cover.

The Narthani, a militant realm who believe their manifest destiny is to rule the entire planet, Anyar, plan to absorb Caedellium into their empire and crush any resistance. Yozef Kolsko (aka Joe Colsco) works to find ways to increase the chances of his, and the society which has accepted him, ability to resist the Narthani’s planned conquest.
Complicating his life is attraction to a brilliant daughter of an island leader, and his uncertainty of his own mind, hers, or intricacies of Caedellium customs.
Despite his desire to devote himself to introducing new knowledge Yozef is drawn more and more into developing weapons and giving tactical and strategic advice—things he knows he’s unqualified to give. The enemy is coming. The odds seem overwhelming, and it will take all Yozef can do, the courage of his new people, and luck, to survive.
IF MAGIC DEFINES ME, WHO AM I WITHOUT IT?
Has your boyfriend been turned into a bunny? Does your creepy stalker need a time-out as a toad? Or maybe you want a little more oomph in your spells? Shane Ashby—Celtic witch with three times the power of your average magick-user—has you covered.
Or, well, at least I used to.

Somehow, I have to figure out how to keep breathing, not have an emotional breakdown, and make sure no one around me gets caught in the crossfire. All while having one proverbial hand tied behind my back.
Sure, I’ve got this…

The Goblin Invasion Is On... ...and a wizard's work is never done! After facing a hopeless siege, an implacable foe and an impossible escape, you would think that Minalan the Spellmonger would be able to rest -- but the armies of the undead goblin shaman Sheruel (known as the Dead God to his human victims) are rolling over the western reaches of the rustic Duchy of Alshar and is headed toward the heart of the Duchy of Castal. Thousands are fleeing for their lives as hordes of goblins pour out of Boval Vale and devastate the rugged fiefs of the Alshari Wilderlands. And the super-charged shamans of the Dead God are making defending the realm almost impossible for the outnumbered Alshari country knights. While the two Dukes play feudal politics to further their own ends, the only people who seem to care about the invasion are Minalan and his outlaw warmagi friends -- and they're busy dodging agents of the sinister Royal Censorate of Magic. But if someone doesn't organize an army in northern Alshar soon, then there will be ...
Ever since discovering that his mother is still alive, and being held captive by Lord Zelroth, Lusam has been tormented by terrifying nightmares. He soon finds that it's not only his nightmares which threaten to thwart his plans of a rescue, but also the King himself. New alliances are made and old ones are tested to their limits as Lusam's single-mindedness to rescue his mother causes him to take risks that he would never normally consider.
A recent discovery allows Lord Zelroth to set in motion a new plan, which, if successful, will once again tear open the Great Rift and release the hordes of Netherworld creatures into the world, as well as the imprisoned God, Aamon. The very survival of Afaraon, and, possibly, the entire world, may soon hinge on the decisions that Lusam makes.

'Pattinson's Curse' is the first novel in a trilogy that follows the legal career of Johanna Pattinson: from solicitor to barrister and finally to judge. At every step the spectre of this terrible decision hangs over her, threatening to destroy all she holds dear.
Raised in a man’s world, on a sheep farm in far western Victoria, Australia, Johanna believes she has escaped her life of hardship and oppression when she begins her career as a solicitor in Melbourne in 1981.
But the legal profession attracts some powerful and twisted characters.
Four men will shape the rest of Johanna’s life: one she will love, one she will despise, one she must overcome, and another who will do his best to destroy her.
Will she be doomed forever by the decision he forces her to make, or can she escape ‘Pattinson’s Curse’?
These 30 short stories are bound by a collective eclecticism, shades of darkness and narrative twists.
The darkest themes – violent crime (‘Blood Red and the Eighth Dwarf’), suicide (‘Pin Back Your Ears and Smile’) and the spectre of incest (‘Terror by Torchlight’) – are tempered by the light (‘If Horses Could Talk’, ‘Old Lady’s Dream’, ‘Crown for the Coronet’). But even in the lightest, darkness lurks.
No character in these tales – the overzealous cop in ‘Sweet Transvestite’, the brutal husband in ‘Cutting Board Killer’, the mysterious man on the run in ‘Strangers on a Plane’ – will stop to smell the roses. The convicted rapist / killer in ‘Devil’s Doorway’ will hardly get the chance … but is the Death Row inmate guilty, or innocent?
Jack Myst infiltrated the Thieves Guild to avenge his mother’s murder, but never expected to find a home. Now a master thief, he grapples with his new identity as he unravels the secrets of the fallen Guildmaster.

Seething with hatred and cast out by the thieves, Skorn is not without allies. Forcing an assassin into service, he journeys to the forgotten fortress of Margauth, where a cult worships him as a god. With such an army at his command he seeks a return to power, and two keys that unlock a legendary vault.
The Vault of the Eternals.
