New Logo Reveal
Book Display , Conversations / August 5, 2017

Hello All. I wanted you, as Spirit Guardians, to be the first to see the new logo.   What does this logo mean? I wanted three things to be incorporated. The cog or gear, from my first book. Technology. Paranormal or supernatural. While nothing in this world is perfect. we have to start somewhere. I hope everyone likes it.   Why a logo? The family and I watch the show ‘The Profit’ and one of the main staple in business is brand and logo. Think Walmart acquiring their new logo, or everyone identifies Target with its specific logo. You see the logo, and you inherently associate the company with the logo.   First Phase: The first step or phase will be the covers. I am working on these now. Rather than a pic of me and a small bio, each is being replaced with the new logo. Current   After     Second Phase: Later as I add more content (books and material), the logo will be used.

Book Publishers, By The Numbers, Amazon books sales “account for 7% of the company’s $75 billion in total yearly revenue.” One can only imagine that number has remained or increased over time.
