Such an adorable evocative new cover… I love it. It almost looks vintage! Wonderful!

Toni LP Kelner

Thanks, Hank!

Great covers all. I don't think many people think about the process. I know I didn't before I started wondering what my own covers might look like.


Thanks for the look behind the scenes at those covers. You are right about how each one evokes a different sense of what is in the book. I think I do judge books by their cover more than I was expecting.


October is still such a long way off!!!!!!!! Eagerly awaiting the next book. Thanks for the behind the scenes look at creating book covers!

Thanks for the bare bones explanation of how novels get their covers. Please spend another blog telling us more about the inside now. I want to hear the plot.
So glad Sid is back.

Does anyone remember the wonderful covers on Charlotte
McLeod's mysteries? For many, there was a hidden skull--
two vases of purple flowers forming the eyes on The Recycled Citizen.
