A book cover should intrigue a reader—not tell the whole story. The absolute master of this art is our associate Teri Rider. Teri can create covers that will suck you in at first glance.
In addition to creating stand-out covers, Teri is an illustrator and book designer, and web builder. Follow your nose to see what she’s got cooking at teririder.com.

*books must be designed by either Teri Rider of David Wogahn, or under their direction. This is to insure that all our publications are of uniform quality. All books must be professionally proof-read. You may chose to have us proof read or select your own proof reader, but it can’t be your sister-in-law who teaches English in high school. We refuse to publish anything that demeans any group of people based on perceived “otherness” and nothing that we judge to be bigoted or pornographic. Just about anything else goes.
We will review your book before or after it is published, and target ten likely agents and send them a query letter, endorsement, and sample chapters according to their specification, and refer them directly to the author.
We will post a review on Amazon and Goodreads;
We will send, in co-ordination with David Wogahn,

Huzzah! Huzzah! May this website attract writers and readers to build a community of voices!
