Cold Blood: Yamabuki vs. the Sword Master

This is the cover design for Book One of Sword of the Taka Samurai, by Katherine M. Lawrence. We started with the design of Katherine’s first book, Cold Saké: Yamabuki vs. the Undead, using it as inspiration and a cover design template for the series.

Cold Saké

Cold Saké: Yamabuki vs. the Undead, by Katherine M. Lawrence, was the first book we published at Toot Sweet Ink, so we decided to go all out — hardcover, paperback, ebook (all platforms), and ultimately audiobook. More about Cold Saké can be found at Toot Sweet Ink.
