Brag moment! Even though I get no real credit for this one.
I’ve been an avid appreciator of Joel Friedlander’s The Book Designer site for some years, and I keep an eye on his cover design awards and commentary as a useful educational tool (and a fun one). I’ve entered several of my covers, commissioned and self-designed, and gotten nice feedback on them. But this month I landed the coveted gold star.
Boom, baby! That’s for Damonza’s gorgeous work on The Songweaver’s Vow.
Ain’t it pretty?
In unrelated news, I spent some time this morning talking with editor Katie Morford about Shard & Shield and getting it together for release. I hope to have news on that front as the year progresses.
