I’ve been tidying up the apartment today, a job I do not like. Or rather I’ve been doing the laundry and cleaning and hoovering. Tidying up is one of those tasks that I’m just no good at. I can never make up my mind where to put any one item and I often walk around with a piece of paper for a good long while before deciding that the very best place for it in all the universe was where I just found it.
This morning I was having a coffee with my very gifted artist friend Tobias Harrison. I told him about this blog and in an unthinking moment gave him the address.
Consternation. The site needed tidying up every bit as much as the apartment. So, after lunch on the terrace, and a couple of glasses of wine I’ve thought I’d share all the new covers of The Lost King series. They were produced by the very professional Derek Murphy of CreativeIndies. Derek is that rare thing, an entrepreneurial guy with a creative mind and an extremely generous nature. He did a make-over of ten book covers and my book Resistance was one of them. Here’s a link to his article: http://www.creativindie.com/can-a-new-book-cover-double-sales-a-case-study-with-10-authors/
Then he said, ‘shall I do the others?’
That’s an offer I could not refuse. So here are all three covers side by side. If you look to the side-bar on the right you’ll see how much of a difference they made.
