My story started where many bibliophiles started, with books. I have been reading for as long as I can remember. Reading children's books when it was well past my bedtime because I couldn't shut my brain off. This, of course, evolved into reading Harry Potter, and Twilight ( Team Edward). While in high school I took eight terms of Web Design courses. This is where I learned the base of my design knowledge, however, I went on to major in Communications/ Public Relations. Like many adults who struggle with ADHD, college did not work out for me.
Another decade passed and I was working through my first military deployment, searching for a hobby to pass the time. It had been many years since I picked up a book, let alone finish one. I was well past my Twihard days but wanted something with the same sort of feel. A fantasy romance series was recommended to me and this was the moment I fell back in love with reading. I read around three hundred books that year, found bookstagram and a whole new world opened up for me. At that time, I read a mix of adult romance and young adult books.
I continually saw these amazing book trailers for many of the popular young adult books and wondered why the indie romance world didn't also have these engaging trailers. I quickly learned there were book trailer companies out there, but they didn't seem to be realistically priced for the indie world. This was especially true for the new and upcoming authors who would benefit from this type of marketing.
I have always been a creative person. Having ADHD is sometimes referred to as a curse and a superpower. We are in a constant state of boredom and are always learning new things, developing skills, and in general constantly absorbing things. I dusted off my design skills and updated that ancient Adobe suite determined to offer indie romance authors the ability to showcase their work within their budget.
What started as a book trailer business turned into a full graphic design service. I've worked with so many amazing authors, book boxes, and other designers for nearly six years. I've formed some of my closest relationships in this book world and watched countless new authors turn into best-sellers. What started as a hobby to pass deployment time, has evolved into a passionate drive to help each client bring their art to life. You can find examples of my work here on my website and social media, along with exclusive book covers featured in various monthly book boxes.
