Fabulous New Book Cover from Samantha Groom for my Self-Published Short Stories

Here is my fabulous new book cover from Samantha Groom who created the one for Gipsy Moth (which you should be able to see in the right hand column).

I wanted something dreamy and light to reflect my summery stories in comparison to the more serious nature of my novel, but on the other hand, I wanted it to be similar to show that it was another book by me!

Samantha came up with some excellent ideas, and after lots of exciting emails, when new designs appeared almost daily like magic in my inbox, she produced this one, which I love because it gives the flavour of some of the stories which are set in the Sixties using a genuine photo and postcard from that time.

As you can see, it's called Postcards and Suntan Cream and I'll  be launching it in the New Year when thoughts will be turning towards holidays in the sun.

  2. Thanks, Janice. Looking forward to your Spellbindingly Fun Blog Party on Friday!

  3. Delightful cover, Jean. The face and hair of the girl are not time-prescriptive, but they do hint at the sixties.

  4. Thanks, Alison. Yes, you're right.

  5. What a lovely cover, Jean - and I've always loved the Gipsy Moth one.

  6. Thanks, Rosemary. I'm glad you like the Gipsy Moth cover too!
