Just received the final version of the custom cover from the very talented Nicole of www.covershotcreations.com for this book, the 1st in my 15-book Rafferty & Llewellyn British Detective Series.
I love it! Nicole sent me three different designs to choose from, with different colours and fonts. It was a difficult decision to make a choice as I liked all of them. But I liked the simplicity of this one.
I decided to swap some of Rafferty’s breakfast egg for the tie pin as, although, with his garish ties, he thinks he’s the bee’s knees of style, in reality he’s a bit of a slob, with down-at-heel and usually unpolished shoes, so the breakfast egg adorning his tie was only too likely. Of course, because I hadn’t thought much about covers when I originally wrote this book, it means I have to go back in the book and insert the egg splodge, but it’s a small enough alteration to have it in keeping with my new cover.
Nicole was a delight to work with and I’m more than happy to highly recommend her services.
What do you thinek of it?
Here’s the previous (actually still current until I alter the text) cover.
