SirTrevor has been by far the best I’ve ever worked with! Fast, clean and responsive. I won’t be going anywhere else for my design work.
Great job. East to work with
Super Job. Hard working designer who constantly made changes to improve design. I recommend him highly.
Excellent design eye. Very responsive to comments. Made quick and appropriate adjustments. Seemed to intuit what the book was all about even though of course he had not read the whole manuscript, only a short design brief.

How judee3 started their book cover journey
You Can't Try a Dead Man
Judee Howard, CSW, is a social worker by trade and has worked in the non-profit world for over twenty years. She loves creating a safe place where people feel they belong and can be themselves. Besides being married to Jeff, Judee has three sons and loves devoting time to them and their families. She values authentic relationships and enjoys spending time with friends and meeting new people.
Back cover copy:
“It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer.” Sir William Blackstone
As Jeff hitchhiked across the country, his mind was focused on getting clean, sober, and starting over, again. As a 27-year-old, Jeff had been in and out of trouble most of his life. He began drinking at the age of nine and using hard drugs in his late teens. He couldn’t seem to leave it behind even after four stints in treatment and two in prison.
But, while planning how to get his life back on track, events unfolded that would undo all of this—dashing his hopes and dreams to pieces. Unbeknownst to Jeff, his roommate had been murdered the morning he left town, and Jeff was deemed the likely suspect.
This sounds like the start to a good, suspenseful, fiction novel, but, tragically, you’re about to hear an absolutely true story.
You Can’t Try a Dead Man will challenge you to:
• Ponder your expectations for our justice system
• Consider there may be more to the story than portrayed in the media
• Ask critical questions if you have the opportunity to serve on a jury
For all of us who face our own seemingly insurmountable challenge, this book helps us rediscover the true meaning of freedom and forgiveness.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
I'm not fond of all black or too much darkness. I'm attaching some files. Some are of the South Dakota State Pen (part of story). Also, I'd prefer it not too busy.
I'm attaching some things I like. The black one I'm NOT fond of.
What to avoid
I'm not fond of anything too cliche - which may be challenging in this theme. But I could be surprised!
I'd prefer not to pay extra for stock photos.
In case it was missed above - please don't emphasize the words "Dead Man" in the title. Also, depictions regarding a dead man wouldn't be appropriate.
Jeff is a white man.
