Book Design for Pagan/Polytheist Titles — A Forest Door

For those of you working on book titles, check out A Forest Door. Dver does really lovely book design and editing.


As many of you know, I’ve been doing book design for self-published authors for many years, specializing in pagan/polytheist titles (including all of my own books of course!).
