"To anyone searching for a memorable book cover:

Marion Sipe, cover artist, is a keeper.

Marion has designed the covers for seven of my books. Four are young adult, and three are well beyond that genre, into the realm of gay lit.

I am bowled over by her talents. First, Marion fashioned the young adult series to show the MC growing through the years, starting as a mischievous young girl, up to the time when she trembles on the brink of womanhood. Each cover is surpassingly beautiful, evocative, even mysterious.

And for the gay lit, a three-part series, she cleverly combined the characters’ attraction with important symbols in the novels, an overall retro “look,” and a strong font that unifies all the books.
In short, Marion was able to make all my books clearly stand out as “my” unique work, with covers that should garner many sales." - Erin O'Quinn
