At last! The cover for my new novel can now be revealed.
Many thanks to Lorna Gray for her talented design. She has the ability to take my ideas and create a reality which goes beyond what I had imagined.
Heronfield has made the finals for the Authors Database book cover design competition of 2013
Thank you everyone who voted for the cover – Lorna Gray (the artist) and I really do appreciate your support!
There is no voting in the final round. Authorsdb says ‘The final round will be solely judged by our live judges on technical design elements, relation to subject matter and content, composition and preferance, using a proven point system.’ So this is where the cover has to ‘stand alone’ on it’s merits – and with such a good design from Lorna I’m sure we’re in with a chance!
I have received some great news which supports all of the very positive comments I have received about the design of the cover for Heronfield – it has reached the semi-finals in the war/military section of AUTHORSdB Book Cover Competition for 2013. Please do take a look and cast your vote! (Voting from 23rd November to 15th December).
Many thanks to my friend, Lorna Gray, for the design. She is a very accomplished artist and you can see more of her work here. Lorna will also be designing the cover for my soon to be released novel, The Guardians, and my work in progress, Rebekah.
Take a look at the covers in the other categories too, some of them are real works of art.
Don’t forget to cast your vote!
With the help of my friend Lorna Gray (who designed the cover for Heronfield) I am just beginning the task of creating a cover for my new novel – The Guardians. As part of this I am presently immersed in pictures of Aztec statues and rattle snakes? Intrigued? Watch this space!
You can read the Prologue to The Guardians here.
Take a look here to see Lorna Grays comments on how she created the cover for Heronfield.
I am currently working with Lorna Gray, artist and friend, on ideas for the cover of the ebook version of Heronfield which will be published later this summer or early in the autumn.
We have one or two ideas we are ‘playing with’ which is very exciting and I look forward to seeing the draft of our favourite idea so far!
