When readers see my book cover, I want them to feel enticed into entering the fictional space of my story. That is exactly what Allen Jomoc accomplished with the cover for my novel, Ivory Black. Brushes dripping with black and white paint stand before dreamy swirls of gray and white, inviting prospective readers to immerse themselves in the story about a painter who uses his art to deal with trauma and loss. A book might be authored by one person, but it takes a team to make it succeed. I’m very fortunate to have an artist as gifted as Allen on my team. Working with him was a delight, and I hope to work with him again.

Allen Jomoc has a rare talent for blending powerful imagery with graphic elements of deep significance, effortlessly conveying the essence of a book's story to readers. Working with Allen was not only gratifying but easy . . . in fact, the only difficulty I encountered was in deciding which one of his thrillingly creative concepts to use for the cover of the book. I highly recommend him!

As a first time author, I was thrilled to work with Allen on the cover of my memoir - All Creatures Weird and Dangerous. The consummate professional, he worked through numerous iterations to transform a photo into a work of art that captured the essence of my work.

Allen is a wonderful designer! He took our ideas and made them so much more. I’m very pleased with my book cover’s quiet dignity and surprising punch. We truly appreciate Allen’s energy and talent.

What impressed me about Jomoc's cover for my novel was its artistic elegance while also conveying the earthiness of the 1910 Mexican revolution.

I couldn't be more thrilled with the beautiful cover design Allen Jomoc created for my novel, 37. Allen was able to capture the essence of the entire novel with a compelling graphic. This was no easy task since 37 is a combination of contemporary fiction, literary fiction, historical fiction, magical realism, and short stories! In addition to Allen creating stellar cover art and design, he was also so patient and kind throughout the process as my publisher and I requested many tweaks to the design, color, fonts, etc. I am so happy with the book cover! I have received many, many positive comments about it, how unique it is and how it draws the reader in, and even how somehow Allen worked his magic to make it look as if the cover actually is lit and glowing from within! I highly recommend Allen and would gladly work with him again on future projects.

I was thrilled beyond expectation with the work that Allen Jomoc did for the cover of my novel, River. He clearly had a strong sense of the book, and was also focused on helping me articulate what I envisaged--what I hoped the cover would capture and convey. Allen said from the outset that he would not rest until I was happy with the cover; he produced a range of possibilities and worked with me to narrow the choices, and then hone the vision. He was tireless in his efforts and it was clear to me that his goal really was to arrive at a final cover that left me feeling not only satisfied, but fully delighted. It was an absolute pleasure working with Allen on the book cover and I hope to work with him again on future books. His talent, deep experience, artistic expertise, sensitivity and commitment to his work are superb and I recommend him highly and without reservation.

What a brilliant professional. Allen did an outstanding job on the initial cover and then was ready and eager to make the adjustments I needed for the final product. With attention to detail and prompt communications it has been an absolute delight to work with Allen and I would do so again in a heartbeat :-)

Allen immediately offered me a selection of compelling initial cover images, and then we worked together to fine-tune the image I selected, creating the visual atmosphere I was after—he’s open-minded, creative, professional, easy to work with, and quick to understand exactly what I wanted for the cover.
