Setting the Tone


A well-designed book cover reflects the content of its pages. When author, Melanie Tidwell contacted me, she had already chosen the photograph she hoped to use for her book’s cover. It’s a beautiful photo—and after reading a sample of the text to get a good sense of her message, it was very easy to choose complementary fonts and design elements that enhance not only the photo, but the beautiful message on its pages.

    Maralee Nelson is a joy to work with! She designed my book, Sacred Soul-Space, and I couldn’t be happier about the results. Everyone who sees my book is drawn to the design first and I receive many compliments on the beauty of the presentation. Being a first time self-published author, I had no clue how to get my book from a basic word document to finished product. Maralee is a very capable professional who educated and guided me step-by-step through the process. She is very patient, prompt, and thorough. She literally performed miracles to get my book ready for the printer. I highly recommend her for your design needs! (
