I’m closed to cover art until January 2024. I have some availability for formatting in December still.
Premade covers can be customized at any time (outside of holidays) but please allow for a week turnaround.
In general, the one thing I can squeeze in in terms of graphics is full-wrap add-ons or promos for existing clients whose ebook covers are already complete. Please allow a one- to two-week turnaround.
Editing Notice: I am only accepting editing bookings from previous editing clients. I cannot take on new clients at this time. My schedule is booked a year+ in advance now and as I’m working on several series, consistency is important to those clients.
Existing (and previous) clients, please book as usual. See my availability below.
2023 & 2024 editing booking notice: I’m booked solid. 2025 editing booking notice: I’m generally booked January, March, May, October, November every year, and likely will be in 2025 as well. I’m unavailable April, September, and December.
I only work on 10-12 books a year. Freelancing is part time for me as I have to work on my own writing. Please book early, and if you have some flexibility, you can inquire about sending in completed books that I can get to when I have space to fill in my schedule if you’re a previous client.
For large-scale projects, please book well in advance if possible. I won’t pencil anyone into my schedule without a down payment first unless they’re a regular client in good standing. It messes with my finances to pencil someone in and then have them not deliver the project; please book only when serious.
Typically cover art is booked four to six weeks ahead of time, FYI.
If you want something done sooner than the turn around times I project, you can inquire about a rush charge, which will vary depending on the project.
Current Email Queue

Some inquiries that come in Thursdays/Fridays might not be responded to until Monday or Tuesday. I do not check or answer email on weekends. You can usually look for any current availability updates at my Facebook page.
I am always unavailable weekends and Canadian holidays. Inquiries from clients go directly to my “work” folder and are not seen by me until my usual office hours. I also have health conditions that require a flexible schedule to account for appointments, tests, and medication side effects. Thank you for your patience.
