Cover Design 2013 to September 2015

 As you may, or may not, know book design is both something I love and something I do as a job (hoorah!), and since I am bringing this blog back to life, I thought the first design post should be my own. I will be posting my own covers every so often, including those I’ve rescued from the reject pile!

All of these covers were designed in the last two years, I rather like the backs too but am saving them for later. (Insert sneaky facial expressions and appropriate hand gestures.) It’s quite satisfying to see them all in one place. Lovely.

Check back next month for a Halloween-esque cover feature!


Apologies for the sketchy quality of some – jpeg compression plus wordpress compression doth not a happy cover make in some cases, particularly when the colours are bright. 

Book Covers I Like: New Releases, August and September 2014

Hello, lovely people. This is a bumper edition of ‘Book Covers I Like’ as I took most of August off, which was both planned and unplanned at the same time.

Never fear, though, for I have several book reviews coming (including the first three Point Horror read-a-thon entries!) and some pretty exciting photography/design to post. You may have noticed there are some new pages up there in the nav bar. Go forth and click for photography and design stuff, more of which is to come.

As ever, found on Twitter, Amazon, Waterstones, Publisher websites, Goodreads and etc so pub dates may be wrong… but, still pretty. The images appear in no particular order.

EDIT 30/09/14: I realised I have featured Flying Shoes twice and am assuming the publication date changed on Goodreads, whatever happened it proves I really, really like that cover.
