Cover reveal: Sasha and the Warrior Unicorn

One of the many cool things I enjoy as an indie published author is the chance to choose which talented illustrators and designers I work with. Together, my illustrator Emma and cover designer Rose have created an absolutely stunning cover for the second book in The Unicorn King Series, Sasha and the Warrior Unicorn. I’m […]
