"His work is beautiful and intelligent, a tribute to the realm of superior fantasy art," Stone says when describing Steve's work. "Steve has surpassed my expectations each time he has completed a cover for one of my novels." Fans have not only come to enjoy the story of the series Stone writes, but also the package it comes in. "My goal is to give the reader something they don't want to give up. There are few books that I have that I truly cherish. A lot can be said about authors and publishers if they put out a quality product-- inside and out. There are many stories that die in the marketplace, simply because they do not have the proper representation for the story on the cover."
