A big part of the success of my book is due to the wonderful design and layout work done by Magdalene Carson. Mag diligently tackled this project using her keen eye and industry experience, was easy to work with, and in the end produced a fabulous-looking book which has won wide-spread praise.
A very special thank you for the cover design of my book. It’s getting rave reviews from all of who have seen it and the books are selling like hot cakes. Your contribution was crucial to the success of this book and I offer you my kudos for a job extremely well done.

Working with Mag was like winning the trifecta at the track or scoring a hat trick in hockey: she got my book, she cared, and she knows her business. … Throughout, the passion and professionalism were unmistakable.
Mag Carson was responsible for the artistic layout and the photography of my children’s book GrrrOUCH! Pain is like a grouchy bear. She also has designed and produced a variety of GrrrOUCH! promotional materials including a poster board, flyers, and email attachments. She is efficient, effective, and well-organized. Mag captures the essence of the message and showcases it in an engaging, creative, insightful manner.

I want to thank you again for the wonderful job you did on the cover design for my book Stubborn. Your use of type and images not only catches attention and evokes stubborn persistence, but speaks simultaneously to the unusual mix of ideas and places covered by the book. And I believe the cover played a very important role in generating effective media coverage and reviews of the book.

My first reaction — and of my husband, 17-year-old daughter, and her friends — is that WE LOVE IT! I’m going to sleep on it, but I think it looks amazing. You really capture the story and the conflict. I love the … drama in the ice spray and the pick.
