This is happy day! When I checked my email tonight, Lynda Burch, owner and publisher of Guardian Angel Publishing had sent me a copy of the cover art for The Little Shepherd Boy, which is due to be released this fall.
I was already familiar with Eugene Ruble’s work before he was contracted to design The Little Shepherd Boy, so I knew the cover art would be wonderful.
I absolutely love this cover!
I would appreciate some feedback from you, the readers of this blog, and hopefully future fans of Obed’s story, The Little Shepherd Boy. What do you think of the cover art?
Thanks for all your support. Look for more information regarding The Little Shepherd Boy as we get closer to release time.
I’m sooooo excited for you! The cover is WONDERFUL!
I would love to review it for you.
I’m a HUGE fan of his work. He’s illustrating a book for me, too. His illustrations are so rich with detail. He’s very talented. I can spend hours absorbing his work. I can’t wait to see what he’s done within the cover of your book.

Thanks for stopping by ladies. My day is definitely ending on a high note. Aday, you are so right. Eugene has such a beautiful style. I am so pleased we are getting to work together on this.
Eugene did the illustrations for my Christmas book, Secret Service Saint, too. I think he’s great and the cover of your book looks wonderful.
