Affordable EYE-POPPING / ATTENTION-GRABBING Book Covers! Yup, that's my job! Here's the deal. It's pretty simple, really: If your book cover doesn't grab a potential buyer's eye the potential buyer may not grab your book. My cover designs should come with a warning: CAUTION! YOU COULD PUT...

It all began with the telling of a few silly stories to my teenage son, Seumas, who was dying of cancer. He laughed endlessly at my somewhat embellished childhood recollections, then begged me to write a book. It was 1997..... fifteen years since I had begun working as a visual artist. I closed my...

When I say, "I'm a writing coach," people want to know what I do--exactly. I explain that I'm something like a writer's therapist (minus the couch, and with better lines than "how does that make you feel?"). I try to diffuse the angst-bomb that is always ticking loudly within a...
