Book Cover Project

New Book Cover Photo

I think we lost track a long time ago how many book covers we’ve done over the years, but it’s always fun to see a new one.  We provided this photo to up and coming novel author, James West, for his first “Jack Shaw Adventure” called Cedar Key.   It should be available soon.
