Joseph Karl Publishing joined forces with award-winning graphic designer Roseann Nieman this morning to finalize work on the life-changing book "A New Voice for a Broken Soul," by Catholic author and speaker Paul A. Ray. The front cover, still under wraps for now, is every bit worthy of the contents of the book, which confirm that every soul can find mercy and hope in Jesus Christ.

We are so blessed and absolutely delighted to have Roseann working with us again, this time on special assignment to create the cover of Paul's life-changing book.
A peek at a portion of the front cover.
A New Voice For A Broken Soul continues to move through the various stages toward publication.
Award-winning book design, layout, and packager Erin Howarth of DDM publications worked with Paul to create an interior design that compliments the exceptional content. Paul has an extraordinary way with words, because he is truly inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Nancy Carabio Belanger, from award-winning publishing company Harvey House Publishing, professionally copy edited the text. John-Paul Belanger is also a vital member of the team who read through the book and offered his invaluable suggestions.
Currently, Paul is making his final revisions to the manuscript. As he does so, award-winning graphic designer Roseann Nieman, from Niemanart Graphics, is working to integrate text, photos, Paul's concept design, and the magnificent image created by photographer Mike Nykoruk of Highlight Studios, to produce an exceptional cover.
Fr. Ben Kosnac is another vital member of our publishing team, and we are grateful to him as well for helping recreate the scene for the cover image, which is based upon an extraordinary event that occurs in the book.
The excitement is building as the team gets closer to completing A New Voice For A Broken Soul.
Paul's life-changing book will be published in 2012.

From September 15, 2011:
We are overjoyed to be collaborating with premier photographer Mike Nykoruk on material currently in development to encourage, inspire, continue your faith formation, and lead souls to Christ.A New Voice for a Broken Soul.
Mike specifically designed and built the set in his studio to create the image for the front cover.
The striking image is based on a vision granted to Paul following his miraculous healing by Jesus Christ from an addiction to alcohol.
Then, following many hours at his desk to create the final image from the many pictures that were taken, Mike will provide us the cover image. It will then be given to award-winning graphic designer Roseann Nieman of Niemanart Graphics, director of graphic design at Joseph Karl Publishing, who will complete the front and back covers.
Paul's life-changing book is moving well through the many steps toward publication, and Joseph Karl Publishing just cannot wait to present it to you. Paul's account of God's miraculous and unfathomable love and mercy is a reminder to us all that we are loved and valued beyond measure.
A New Voice for a Broken Soul by Paul A. Ray (Joseph Karl Publishing) will be published in 2012.
