Cover Design Reveal: Elusive Memories

As many of you know, I recently overhauled my graphic design business and shifted its focus from wedding stationery and paper goods to book covers and promotional items for authors, so as I complete projects I thought it might be fun to share them on the blog for everyone to check out.

I'm proud of each and every design I put together, whether it's a personal piece simply for me or a design for a client, but I'm doubly excited about the cover today because it was done for my friend and fellow blogger Amanda from On a Book Bender. She's written a pair of non-fiction books on blogging (Blog Events and The Blogger's Mindset), but this is her first fiction novel and I'm honored she came to me for her cover artwork.

Without further ado, I give you Amanda's upcoming release, Elusive Memories.



The resistance has hunted the Gifted for years. When Sam Benson is taken and her memory stolen, she certainly isn’t the first victim of the resistance. But she’s determined to use her family’s influence as memory-bringer elders to make sure she’s one of the last.

As soon as she escapes the resistance’s compound, anyway.

Two resistance guards claim to be working to get Sam free, but only one has her best interests at heart—and holds the key to mounting an offense against the resistance. With her memory fractured and the resistance set against her, can she choose the right person to trust?

Elusive Memories will be available this May in both e-book and print, so be sure and keep an eye on Amanda's website for all the release day details!
