Thank you to everyone who has emailed me directly, as well for the comments below. I am eternally grateful and will take them all into consideration if this title is to be self-published. For now I am reaching out to agents and, with a bit of luck, someone will like what they read and take me on.
My amazing cover designer Alma has sent through this working cover and I LOVE IT, but now I want to know what you think.
Does it grab you? Will it stand out? What does it communicate? What genre would you place it in? Would you buy this if you saw it on the Kindle store?
I know that getting a cover right is a work of art, and wholly dependent on so many different things coming together. What I wanted was something dynamic and with depth, and I feel as though Alma’s found just the right balance between colour and illustration. But then this is my baby and I’m biased!
I would love to hear from you.
