“Black Feather Editorial did a fantastic job on my first PNR cover for my first PNR novel. They nailed exactly what I had in mind, as well as my branding and branding future books in the series. They were professional and easy to work with, it made the entire process enjoyable. They asked the right questions in order to get exactly what I wanted to portray in the cover. Black Feather Editorial impressed me and I will absolutely use them again for book covers."
