September has been a Busy Month!

Mike Walker and Palabra Smith - A Simplified HAIKU for You to do

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.


Anthology Cover Design Complete!

That's What They Say

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.

Neighborhood Art Projects

Update 10-1-2017: Hurricane Irma has come and disrupted the park bench opportunity for me.  Upon return from the storm, my job with the State of FL has taken precedence with Disaster Inspections taking place.  I’m sad to say, I have to pass on this art project opportunity.  Posted is an example of one of the bench designs I was prepared to submit.  I had a proposal ready for 7 bench designs but will be unable to commit to the painting days should one of my designs be chosen.  Perhaps at the next park…

8-24-2017: I am working on some designs to submit for proposal on a park bench project in my community and am excited to have a chance to be a part of this neighborhood enhancement.

RFP requirements for Seminole Park Bench Painting Project may be found Here.
