The Summer Season

Woohoo! Here is the cover for my new book, The Summer Season. ISN'T it lovely? Hats off once again to the wonderful designers at Avon. They really do a fabulous job.

I know Joanna Trollope last year, made a very sensible and rational plea for cover designers not to always go pink and girly on romantic fiction covers, but... there is a disconnect with what the sales team says the market wants, what in an ideal world we'd like to see, and what people will actually go and buy. I know this is a very commercial cover, and I love it, so there.

(Am particularly pleased with the pansies aka heartsease round the borders, as heartsease has an important part to play in the story)

Fab cover!
It will be very eye catching on the bookstand.

I'd like to take credit, but I can't really!! It is lovely isn't it. I keep having to look at it.

Awh, I think it is a LOVELY design and the subtle use of flowers at the edge is very nice indeed!
