First Knight: The Chronicles of Lana Lake, the first book in a series by Martin Von Cannon, is now available on Amazon in both digital and print format. It is currently free to Kindle Unlimited Subscribers. I designed this cover using multi-layer assets with custom model photography from my studio. Please visit www.urbanartistflorida.com to have your book cover designed today!
Cate Bronson‘s book, Clonedroid: The New Wave, released last week. Check out the link on Amazon to read it free thru kindle unlimited or purchase a copy. Cate’s book cover was the first design for Urban Artist Florida Studio, LLC. It was an amazing project and a great collaboration between the two of us. If you like the Science Fiction & Fantasy genres you are going to enjoy this book!
I finally broke out the studio photography supplies and got to work on some green screen custom modeling. A re-do of an earlier cover, the author desired some live people character representation. It’s crazy how art school and photography classes from 13 years ago are FINALLY getting some use! It’s good to break away from the stock photography and get in some custom photography and illustrations, offering me a more creative outlet which was the whole point of setting up the studio in the first place.

If you haven’t started your book yet, what are ya’ waiting for? Some of you have a few tours you could be writing about. Some of you drew some amazing cartoon stories and need just redo them with your own character. Let’s get those things published! The time is NOW!
I’ve posted a few pics to get you inspired.
Write about what it was like before we even left – the ups and downs of the indecision and false alarms. Or what it was like in Talil (or any other place you stopped). How was it for you coming home? Especially for you ladies – with all the post-deployment support set up for the men. Remember the stories about taking it easy on our wives who have had over a year to handle the bills and the checkbook – be gentle about taking it back and removing her independence??? (Oh, please.)
I’ve got your book! Oh, I mean back. Oh wait, I mean book cover info right HERE …contact me and let’s get a movin’ on it!

September has proven to be the busiest month for Cover Design work! Added to the list of completed designs is another book by the busy Mike Walker and Palabra Smith: A Simplified Haiku for You to do.
If you are ready to start writing your book but don’t know where to start, come on over to the St. Petersburg library on the second Thursday of every month and sit in on the Florida Writer’s Association meetings. You do not have to be a member to attend, nor do you have to participate and share your book ideas. You can simply listen and learn. If your book is under way and you are looking for a cover design or don’t know a thing about formatting, give me a call or drop me an email. I will take care of those both for you! If you want to see some examples of my work, check out my portfolio of final designs and draft designs.
You can find me and my husband, Martin, there – as well as a great group of other amazing authors. Note: I am working on my first book – and find this group to be a great help in sorting out where to start and how to narrow down my focus.
Love was the subject of their generation. They still have love for the world and profess to love life to the fullest! Visit my cover design Blog and feast your eyes on colorful psychedelic memories from the folks that showed us that love is all we need. Stylish rap, insightful stories, snarky humor from those who have shown us the way, this book is a light, easy read that will have you chuckling and reflecting all in one sitting.
