I’m so excited to have the cover for my first novel, The Silk Romance.
Here it is. Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous?
I’m indebted to designer Charlotte Volnek for all her ideas. Although I’ve worked in the print industry for many years, and worked closely with graphic designers, I’m not a very good artist! I gave Charlotte a few vague ideas of what I thought ought to appear on the cover: an image of Lyon’s historic old town, a picture of the heroine and a suggestion of silk. Within a couple of days, Charlotte came up with this design. I absolutely love it. I especially love the suggestion of a Jacquard design in the watermark pattern, which you can see if you look closely.
I hope you love it as much as I do! If you do, please let me know in the comments – I will pass your comments on to Charlotte.
