The Evolution of a Butterfly Book Cover

How cool is it to have a book series called Butterfly House, and to be able to show the metamorphosis of a book cover… just like a butterfly!

If you scroll through the photos, you’ll see the unveiling of my latest Butterfly House cover, version by version, once again designed by the ever-talented Kerry Sibly.

Movie 1
Version 1: Kerry started with pink in the background, like my original Butterfly House Who Killed The Bride? … but I want something different from pink, so the first alteration was easy.
Movie 2
Version 2: Right from the get-go I love this purple through gold. The Butterfly House Book 2 line on cover and spine are hard to read… they need to be white… and there is a lot going on with ‘Marilyn figure’ ‘actor bloke’ ‘cow’ and ‘camera’… I’m thinking, we need to simplify. Let’s make ‘Marilyn’ bigger and lose the bloke.
movie 3
Version 3: Now we’re cooking with gas! I’m loving this… but because it’s ‘movie star’ I’d like to see some twinkle twinkle little stars on there… stay tuned!
movie 4
Version 4: Ask for stars and ye shall receive!!!
lotsa stars
Version 5: More stars! Too many?
movie 7
Version 6: Subtle stars… I’m loving this! Now we’ve just got the back cover blurb to update and a new barcode to add, and we’re done. Here’s our Beautiful new Butterfly!

 

So there you have it folks! Can you see the progression? Isn’t it beautiful? It’s got all the quirk and character of Cowaramup, and it’s so very original and pretty! 🙂

Love your work, Kerry Sibly!

His Brand Of Beautiful – The Cover

9780857990303[1]Lo and behold!

I am woman. I have roared. I have written (what I hope readers
will think is) a dang good book.

Marketing guru Tate Newell and winery executive Christina Clay are immortal. They have their own cover. See it first here! Is it wishful thinking or does anyone else think he looks like Hugh?
I see Hugh!

Woo! Hoo-ugh!

 

His Brand Of Beautiful – Lily Malone

When marketing strategist Tate Newell first meets wine executive Christina Clay he has one goal in mind: tell Christina he won’Â’t design the new brand for Clay Wines.
Tell her: Thanks but no thanks. So long, good night.

But Tate is a sucker for a damsel in distress and when a diary mix-up leaves Christina in his debt, Tate gets more than he bargained for.

What does a resourceful girl do when the best marketing brain in the business won’Â’t play ball? She bluffs. She cheats. And she ups the ante. But when the stakes get too high, does anybody win?

Falling in love was never part of this branding brief.

 

His Brand Of Beautiful will be released with Escape Publishing in March.

I’m counting down the days. The Escape Artists have an exciting adventure planned for Valentine’s Day and beyond and I’m so proud and pleased to be part of this big ‘Escapade’… more details soon…
