The good folk over at CompletelyNovel have officially announced the winner of the Lord of the Book Covers award for 2015. The announcement is accompanied by short statements from Jon and me explaining the rationale behind the design of the cover of Breakfast at Cannibal Joe’s. You can see, too, from the announcement that the competition was really tight and that there were some knockout covers in the shortlist, including The Brighton Maverick: The complete series of love, life and liaisons in Brighton’s Lanes, by Scott Chadwick; The Alchemist’s Kiss, by AR DeClerck; Stan and the Enchantress, by Sarah Hitchcock; and The Inheritance Powder, by Hilary Standing.
Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to vote for me, and thank you to CompletelyNovel for organising a contest that gives indie authors and artists a chance to shine. A particular thank you, too, to my friend Caitriona Lally, who drew my attention to the contest in the first place and encouraged me to enter. If you haven’t yet checked out Caitriona’s debut novel, Eggshells, I urge you to seek it out. It’s fab.
