Book Cover Reveal




The cover design for Follow Me went through some last minute, quite dramatic, changes the other week and I am delighted to be able to reveal the final finished version above. The artwork/photography is by artist Ida Henrich, and I am really happy with how it turned out. It makes everything feel very real seeing my name on a book cover!

I was lucky to be consulted about my cover (I wonder how many authors are?). My publisher, Strident, even asked me to write a short brief of any ideas I had before work began. I had always visualised woodland being central to the image as Eddison Woods is a central feature in my story (and leads to the Barn). I love the green light in this too.

The release date is 30 September, so not long to go now. And as any writer knows, this is when the true work just begins :)

  1. The cover is stunning, Vikki. Absolutely beautiful. I love the green light too and the way I am drawn right in and want to follow the figure deeper into the woods. It's fantastic for an author to be able to give some input into the design. It must have been a wonderful moment when you saw it for the first time. I really like the font that has been used, both for the title and your name, which stands out beautifully.
    September 30th feels really close now - I always think this month flies by. I feel really excited for you and I'm so looking forward to reading Follow Me. xxx
