“All of the do-it-yourself layout templates, online cover-design gadgets and cyber shortcuts in the world are no competition for a real pro, which James Arneson most definitely is.

When working together on my project, he struck that perfect balance between faithfully executing the vision I had, and helping me to refine that vision with consistently dynamic, surprising and astute suggestions.” ~Jacob Leib Cohen, author of The Spill: Six Stories
