Meets Genre Expectations

Working with Shaun at Flintlock Covers was a great experience. When I wasn’t sure how to explain myself, he examined what I needed and solved the problem. Now, I have a cover that meets genre expectations, is beautiful, and I’m proud to show off. Shaun is quick to reply, and super interested in making sure you have the best possible cover for your book.

Quality Cover

Shaun was great to work with. Quality cover. Professional, with good communication throughout the process, I loved how the process felt like a collaboration where my vague idea gradually turned into something real.

A Pleasure To Work With

Shaun is a pleasure to work with. I asked him to create a cover for a short story to match an existing book series. He was quick, responsive, and focused on the details I requested, zeroing in on the elements that would make the piece fit with the pre-existing designs. And the several tweaks I required as the cover took shape, he executed without hesitation. The process felt very collaborative, which I appreciate. An excellent experience. Thanks, Shaun

Outstanding Designer

Shaun is an outstanding designer. And he is a pleasure to deal with. By the time I found him I had already looked at several others but was not happy with quality or price, Shaun delivered on both! I would definitely recommend him.
