We are delighted to announce the launch of Quirkswood Avenue by Jack Daniel Birch. Jack approached us with a collection of short stories that each had an element of the dark and mysterious. Although he had spent a long time crafting his stories, he knew he needed the fresh perspective of a proofreader to help tidy up the little niggles that he had become too close to the story to see for himself.
Whilst we proofread his stories, one of our top designers got to work on his atmospheric cover. Jack Daniel Birch had quite a strong idea of what he wanted the feel of the cover to be. We worked closely with him to develop that very early stage idea into a really striking and intriguing cover design.
“Working with I_AM to put my first eBook out there was a great experience. When I first saw the front cover proofs, it became clear that my ideas had been heard and we were on the same page. The final cover perfectly captures the aesthetic I had in mind and makes for an eye catching design. The team were very helpful and always supportive with any questions I had, and I’m thrilled with the final result.” – Jack Daniel Birch
