* Just wanted to say that I am based in California so if you don't get
feedback directly it is a time zone thing!
In March 2015 Penguin USA are publishing my current title The
Traveling Tea Shop so I have attached that file image for reference.
My favourite book cover - California Dreamers - was never used. I love
the quirky retro look because I think it conveys some originality
I liked the cover for Out of the Blue but not the black cowboy
hat and I don't think there was enough sense of Greece.
A sense of place is very important. It needs to look dreamy and
aspirational and give the reader that 'I want to be there!' feeling.
I do love the cover for Beautiful Ruins for that reason. And also
because of the retro font. And The Life You Left is so pretty. Return
to Mandalay is evocative.
I WOULD LIKE SOMETHING ORIGINAL, EYE-CATCHING, PRETTY AND FUN!
Open to completely different looks to these. If you have a unique
vision, I'd love to see what you can create!
