Cover Art for The Little Shepherd Boy by Cheryl C. Malandrinos


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.
