  1. Hello Mark,
    I’ve just purchased one of your beautiful mockups and then…. I found our about the other ones, free of charge! Way to go pal, you’re such a decent and honest person! Kudos and congrats for offering such great mockups, while being so nice!

    • Where did you purchase them?
      I would like to give back a bit and buy some of them. But, all I see is free content.

  2. Isn’t Mark nice? I mean, he’s just so kind and nice! And talented, of course, which goes without saying, but even so, I think it ought to be said. “Mark is nice, generous and talented.” There. Done. Actually, I think we should give him a round of applause. What do you think? Ready? Begin! (sound of applause that goes on for ages and is really appreciated by Mark).

  3. Wow, not only are your mock ups really beautiful, they are also very easy to use. Even a complete photoshop noob like me got it in 1 try! Thank you so much!

  4. Thank you, Mark. This is so generous. I love your mockups; they are little works of art. I just started working on my author website, and The Magic Basement is perfect for my book. “I’ll also be using another couple of your mockups. As a self-publishing author trying to watch my budget, finding your mockups feels like winning the lottery! Putting my website below, but it’s not live yet.

    Thanks so very much!

  5. Thank you so much, Mark! Your cover is lovely and fits in so well with the color scheme on my site.
    Your work is much appreciated.
