Cover love!

Those of you who are friends with me on Facebook will have seen my stress over the weekend as I attempted to sort out new covers for Game On and Blindsided. You'll be glad to hear, I got it sorted out!

Due to my laptop dying early this week, I only managed to get one cover done - the cover for Blindsided. It took a while to get it right - most especially for the paperback version - but I ordered myself a copy the second it was available on Amazon (yes, it's actually cheaper and faster to order my books direct from Amazon rather than CreateSpace because of the postage cost!) and it arrived a few minutes ago.

And, here is the back cover ....

It's blurry because I suck at taking photos, but it looks wicked on the book! (Cover photos were purchased from Shutterstock, not taken by me!)

I will post the new Game On paperback cover as soon as I have it. I was too excited to wait to share them both at the same time lol!

    1. Oh, I didn't mean I took the cover photo, I just meant my photo of the photo was dodgy - sorry, I should have been clearer!

    2. Oh, haha. That makes more sense. You saw my post today so I think you understand how clueless I can be. :) I'm on a roll...

  5. Oh, they look so lovely! I love that you give credit for the pictures too, so people can go and find pics of their own to buy. Fantastic.

  17. I know what you mean. Although I don't draw the settings (I know I should, but then I have a million other stuff I should do for my fantasy as well. Sigh.), I've researched prevalent architecture for the buildings I used and collected photos so that I know where I am and what I'm talking about.
    Great interview! Read Me Dead sounds like it has a really good story in there!
