The Poppy Fields Trilogy
The Poppy Fields trilogy was released in April 2014. I was so lucky to secure the time once again of David C. Cassidy an incredible cover designer with artistic talents far beyond those of most in his field in my humble opinion. I wanted my covers for this series to be very similar with just one or two subtle differences, such as the taglines on Book #2 and Book #3 as you will see below. David C. Cassidy has perfectly captured the essence of my story which is conveyed beautifully in these covers as I am sure you will agree…
Tears of Endurance (Two-Book Series)
Tears of Endurance #1
Tears of Endurance book #1. My idea for this book was of an image that would draw you right in to the cover. I knew the depth of the colours I wanted, however, I just couldn’t put into words exactly what I visualised… So once again I employed the services of David. C. Cassidy. I gave him a few rough ideas and explained to him about the emotion I wanted the cover to convey and once again he seemed to conjure up his third all-seeing eye and came up with this incredible cover, which I am sure you will agree is truly beautiful…
Whispers from Heaven #2
Whispers from Heaven #2 continues this heart-wrenching, romantic drama, which tackles all sorts of inner emotions. I once again employed the wonderful talent of David. C. Cassidy to produce an almost identical cover to book #1 in this series.
Broken wings: Was released in March 2013. This story needed a cover that would evoke emotions in people. I wanted the cover for my military/romance novel to capture the very essence of what my story was about. I put my faith into Ares Jun one of my cover designers, and as always I was not disappointed! The cover he designed for me perfectly conveys what my novel is all about. The image of the soldier in the centre of the cover is almost haunting and exactly what I wanted. Once you have read this story you realise just how much of the story is captured in the cover…
A Soldier’s Fear
A soldier’s Fear is a stand-a-lone military/romance novel set in recent times. Published in 2015, I employed the services of Ares Jun for this cover. Ares never disappoints and always seems to know exactly what I want… Again, Ares produced a draft image for me to look over and this was it! I fell in love it immediately. I gave him very little to go on for this cover as for the first time ever – I had no idea what I wanted. I offered him a brief over-view of the story and left him to it – a free reign so to speak… Ares is a very talented cover designer and has designed a lot of book covers for a lot of authors. I would highly recommend his services if you are in need of a quality book cover at affordable prices.
FORBIDDEN #1 (Hamilton/Sharma Series)
Forbidden is book #1 in the ‘Hamilton/Sharma family saga’. Now this was a tough book cover to come up with. A delicate subject matter (interracial relationships) needed a powerful cover to convey my story. It was not easy, however, I did have a few ideas rolling around in my head for this book. As the two protagonists were of English and Hindu origin, I wanted the flag of each of their motherlands displayed on the front cover. I also wanted an image of two hands reaching out together but not quite touching, this was to convey the struggle of the two protagonists. I once again employed the services of Ares Jun for this cover. When I gave him a brief outline of what I wanted for my cover of this book, he produced this amazingly powerful cover. Honestly, I felt as if he could read my mind and could visualise my own vision for this book cover. Ares is incredible and I cannot praise him enough.
DISSOLUTION #2 (Hamilton/Sharma Series)
Dissolution #2 is the second book in my Hamilton/Sharma series. I wanted this book cover to convey change – an unexpected change was afoot! Only when you read this story can you truly appreciate the perfection in its cover. Ares continued the theme of this series beautiful, I requested one thing – a metaphor for change – something symbolic. And here it is… Ares’ mind working like a mind-reader once again. I was flabbergasted when I received this cover. It was perfect.
HEART AND MIND (Contemporary Poetry)
For those of you who are newly introduced to me, I am also a poet. Poetry is my form of relaxation/stress relief and a way of dealing with emotions I don’t want to discuss out loud. You could say my deepest thoughts and feelings are written between the lines of my poetry… Ares Jun produced this simple, yet calming book cover. I wanted a cover that instantly told people it was poetry of the mind and heart. This perfectly sums up what this poetry book will reveal…
THE AMELIA TRILOGY
AMELIA THE MOTHER #3 (Amelia Series)
AMELIA’S DESTINY #2 (Amelia Series)
Amelia’s Destiny: This cover was designed by the super talented artist Ares Jun, based in the Philippines. This cover conveys my story perfectly… It says everything I want it to say. The shadow of a woman taking poll position on my cover says so much, with her head in her hands and the black and white cover. This image gives the readers enough temptation to encourage them to open the book and read further.
AMELIA’S STORY #1 (Amelia series)
Amelia’s Story: This cover was originally designed for me by HF Pixel based in London, England. A few months later having been introduced to Ares Jun by the talented author Alan McDermott, Ares added his magic touch to perfect the cover for me, giving it that sepia look and changing the font of the title and my name. This cover was just perfect, and says it all really…
(An anthology of war poetry)
Military Boots was a very personal venture of mine. With two Grandfathers who fought in WWII and a very dear friend who fought in the Afghan war in 2008 and lost his life to an IED bomb at just 22 years of age. I wanted this war anthology to represent all our soldiers past and present. I employed the services of Ares Jun graphic artist based in the Philippines. Ares Jun has produced several of my covers and I knew he would create for me the perfect cover. I wanted a powerful and emotional cover and one that needed no words as it spoke for itself. I think you will agree that Ares Jun has done just that…
