Highlighting Author Shauna Allen

Welcome to Najla Qamber Designs! Each month, we highlight the authors we’ve enjoyed working with on multiple books and series. Authors know it’s important to choose covers that fit your genre while also catching your ideal reader’s eye.


Shauna Allen, our featured author of the week, has amazingly captured the right blend with The Family Creed series. While we've had the opportunity to cover several of Shauna's novels and series, we especially love how The Family Creed revamps really sets the mood at what you can expect within. Which of these covers is your favorite?


Help us share the cover love by sharing in the comments below!



A Word from the Author


I adore Najla! I feel lucky to have found her and working with her (and the entire team) has been a wonderful experience! Always so professional, sweet, and spot-on with helping me to create exactly what I need...Najla takes my loose ideas, sprinkles her magic artist fairy dust on them, and makes them sparkle! A dream come true to work with and I can't gush enough...seriously.



Family Creed Revamp


Then vs. Now


Not every design process runs smoothly. In other words, the concept we brainstorm with our authors doesn't always translate the way they may have envisioned. In those cases, we often do and redo a cover until we stumble across the right concept. Bonus points for authors who make these kinds of transitions easy peasy. When you look at the two versions of The Family Creed series, which design speaks most to you? Which do you feel is stronger, or better fits the genre?

A Word from the Designer


Shauna is so fun to work with! She's super sweet and laid back that the team and I always enjoy putting her graphics together. Working on our recent re-cover was an absolute blast. Especially when there were a lot of hunky men involved. Thanks so much for sticking with us for all these years, Shauna! Always a pleasure.
