Hello all,

Last year, when I released my eBook, THE STAR AGENCY, onto the world, it had been my intention to spend as little actual money as possible on promotion and cover art, instead being adamant that I could 'do it all myself'. To that end, I produced my own cover and artwork, which, at the time, I was very pleased with. It has however become clear to me over the last few months that my cover, although decent enough, is in no way a match for the professionally produced covers out there and therefore does not sell the book as well as it perhaps could. Although I am a respectable artist in my own right, those skills do not, unfortunately, transfer too well to digital art. I have therefore engaged the services of a professional to do the job for me to give it just that little extra boost. And I am very pleased with the results.


This stunning piece of work you see below was produced for me by Debbie at 'The Cover Collection' http://www.thecovercollection.com/, whom I cannot praise highly enough. Not only did she produce the art for a fraction of the price of bespoke art work, she was also professional and helpful in the extreme. From placing the initial order - through the various discussions as the layout, font & colour - to producing the final work, took only 24 hours. Not only that, but it was very cheap as well - just £30 (approx. $50 US).

The process is really simple. You browse to the website, pick the 'off-the-shelf' cover art you want from a varied and high quality selection, and place your order including the details of what text you require on screen. She will then send you a selection of proofs to pick from, all of which were very good. You can then either pick them as they stand or ask for changes to be made, such as colorization, text layout, font changes etc. Then once you have agreed the final arrangement, the art will be sent to you. I can't thank Debbie at the cover collection enough. And I hope you will agree that she has done a fantastic job.

Although The Cover Collection are UK based, they will work with you whatever your country. So if you are looking for high quality, off-the-shelf cover art, they come highly recommended by me.

Thanks again, to Debbie at The Cover Collection. I am one satisfied customer.

As always, you can download the book from the following links for only $2.99:

Many thanks,
