    Hi Leilanie,

    I visited your literary blog, and as I can see you are passionate about poetry.
    What I mean is that you are a very active in your blog and publishing your poems.
    Let me introduce myself.
    I’m a designer specialized in Book Cover Design.
    I have learned with the experience that some good writers can’t show all their value due to their covers aren’t the most appropriate.
    Only good covers can attract readers to discover a literary work.
    A writer has invested a lot of time and emotional effort, but if the cover is not good enough, their effort has been for nothing.
    I offer good rates and high quality designs.
    Writer and Designer are the best combination for success.
