Over the moon excited was my reaction when up and coming author, J.D. Shaw contacted me about designing the book cover for his new novel, Easy Bake Coven, the first in a series of novels from the Vivienne Finch Magical Mysteries. Once I saw some samples of other covers that was in keeping with his vision, I knew it was kismet, especially when he stated he wanted the background to be a “rich deep purple.”
My enthusiasm was on overdrive and I started designing before our initial consultation. When I showed him my drafts, he was super ecstatic. With just some minor tweaks, in a matter of hours, the cover was born, Christened and ready for a tease on social media.
Meet Miss Vivienne Finch and her furry friend, Tommy Cat.
Vivienne owns a bakery in the middle of historic Main Street in Cayuga Cove called Sweet Dreams Bakery. Shhh…don’t tell, but Vivienne is a witch. Easy Bake Coven is currently being formatted to appear on Amazon Kindle at the end of May. Do stay tuned! Read the book’s synopsis on the back cover.
My first book illustration and I look forward to a fabulous collaboration with J.D. for his future novels. Check back for more details on the book’s launch. Happy reading!
UPDATE: J.D. Shaw is full into his Vivienne Finch Magical Mystery series. The books are available on Amazon as paperbacks or eBooks on Kindle.
