Anthology Cover

The cover for Sensorially Challenged Volume 1 was designed by David Fielden. A purple cover seemed appropriate, seeing as all the stories in the book are stuffed with purple prose.

Dave is my brother. He is one of the luckiest people on the planet. Because I'm his brother. How many people have brothers that make them design book covers all the time? And share pictures of them being kissed on the head? Not many. Lucky, I tell you. Blessed.

Dave also designs websites. You can learn more at Bluetree.
