Traveller to Freedom: The Roger Pryke Story, Francis Ravel Harvey
Fiona Raven is without doubt the best designer I and my company have ever worked with. What you get is not only a very gifted artist who works with the latest technology, but someone who sees the design production task through methodically and quickly, to the completion of every detail. Throw in the fact that her prices are very reasonable, easy to understand and do not—like some others—vary wildly, and you have this client’s complete satisfaction.

Just Watch Me: Trudeau's Tragic Legacy, Ron Coleman
I have worked with Fiona on three books now. She has quickly and assuredly assisted me in arriving at a book design with illustrations that are pleasing to the eye while capturing the import of the book. When and if I write again she will be on the team.

David Kokernot: Rogue Soldier of the Texas Revolution, Alan Barber

The Ben Franklin Award is regarded as one of the highest national honors in small and independent publishing. David Kokernot won silver for biography for 2012, announced in May, 2013.

This award is especially competitive because the judges—who are other publishers, librarians, bookstore owners, reviewers, and designers—rank entrants for both editorial content and book design. My thanks go to my editor, Kathy Carter, and my book designer, Fiona Raven. The quality of their work shows throughout.

Working with Fiona was a pleasure. She worked through multiple iterations of my cover, skillfully using some of my suggestions, modifying others. She has an excellent eye for design, and the result shows in the cover you see here. I recommend her highly!
