About Me

Picture of Patrick Samphire.

Hi. I'm Patrick Samphire, a freelance editor and cover designer living in Wales, U.K. I specialize in edits to draw the best out of your story, and I design eye-catching covers for ebooks and print books.

I've been a cover designer since 2012, and until recently I was a freelance web designer. Until 2010, I designed and built websites for the University of Leeds. I do offer some web design and consultancy services, although I currently don't offer full web design services.

I've been writing and publishing fantasy and science fiction for over twenty years. I've published short stories in many magazines and anthologies, middle grade books for Macmillan, and adult fantasy novels. I have been critiquing and helping to edit books and stories over the same period.

You can find out all my writing and read some free short stories on my writing website.

I also specialize in other services that writers need to promote their books, such as book tour banners, promotional graphics, and headers for social media accounts.

Feel free to drop by on twitter or send me a message if you've got any questions about my services, or, you know, about pretty much anything...
