All About Cover Art
Have you ever decided to read a book simply because you liked the artwork on the cover? There’s a reason why!
Cover art designers work tirelessly to create an attention-grabbing, marketable look that draws a reader to it. It may even be created BEFORE the book has been written. That’s how important cover designs are.
Usually, authors have little say in the design process, and instead designers collaborate with publishers and editors. From there, the artwork changes over time for different reasons, which is why those that we remember are that much more impressive.

Do No Harm
Wow!! I Love It …
So the fabulous Orenda Books & Kid Ethic have done me proud AGAIN … I love the new cover, which I think fits the story perfectly. Here’s the synopsis:
After leaving her marriage to jealous, possessive oncologist Maxwell, Lily and her six-year-old son have a second chance at happiness with headteacher Sebastian. Kind but vulnerable, Sebastian is the polar opposite of Maxwell, and the perfect match for Lily. After a whirlwind romance, they marry, and that’s when things start to go wrong…
Maxwell returns to the scene, determined to win back his family, and events soon spiral out of control. Lily and Sebastian find themselves not only fighting for their relationship, but also their lives …
Chilling, dark and terrifying, Do No Harm is a taut psychological thriller and a study of obsession, from one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction.
