Front cover…

So here it is! I have held onto this for over 6 months and you, my faithful followers, are the first to see it. Sharing my front cover with the world is some what daunting but it feels great to finally let people in.

So I’d like to share with you briefly how this cover came about. There are various options out there for a writer when it comes to front covers. One of which is to source your own image before handing over the reigns to a designer to work their magic. And boy did they work their magic. I have to say a huge thank you to Kellie Dennis at Cover by Design for turning a simple image into a masterpiece.
So I hope you like it and watch this space as ‘A Hole in Serenity’ will be with you very shortly! Thank you as always to my most recent followers for your support and Happy Halloween to all.
Yours excitedly,

    I am a book freak so I read a variety of genres. Its said don’t judge a book by its cover, but I do. And this will definitely pass any judgment measure or scale I have. Its simple yet catchy and beautiful. And weirdly serene just like the title. Looking forward to the book.
    Came here from your comment on the community pool. Will definitely follow, color me impressed by your book cover. Will definitely appreciate a visit and if you like my blog would welcome the follow. See you there ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜‰ hopefully ๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜“.

    Holy crap that looks so cool!

    FYI, may I ask how did you choose the title? I always struggle in naming.

      It’s great to know that you like it.. Thanks! Without giving too much away, my story is a perfect reflection of the title. I found that having a person on the front cover gave greater impact. I’m glad it’s worked! When it comes to a title, the best way to decide is to create a shortlist and then it’s just a process of elimination. Mark
