Cover Awards – AuthorsDB

Authorsdb cover awardA little time has passed since I have posted anything regarding the cover art that I design. Why is that? Awe, I dunno….just haven’t been inspired much to write about it, been busy writing book reviews for authors I guess.

I have news to share today though and I’m pretty excited about it. One of the author’s I design cover art for, Michael Stephen Daigle, the author of the Frank Nagler Mystery series published by Imzadi Publishing ( has entered two of the three covers I have designed for his series in the AuthorsDB cover contests. Low and behold each of them has won a medal!

Frank Nagler Series – Book 1

Last year Mr. Daigle entered the cover for “The Weight of Living”, the third book in the series and, in my opinion the best one to date….but of course I thought that as well for the cover he entered this year “A Game Called Dead”.

Frank Nagler Series – Book 3

Last year “The Weight of Living” won the gold medal Fiction > Mystery/Detective category…this year “A Game Called Dead” won the bronze in the same category.

I am so happy to have a small part in adding to the accolades these wonderful stories are receiving and helping to bring some attention to a very talented author.

Frank Nagler Series – Book 2

As you can see, all covers for this series are line art. I’ve attempted to keep a theme to them to help brand the series with a recognizable feel. Take a look at the covers and let me know what you think of them…I always value input.
