This week, the Open Book Blog Hop bloggers are interviewing their book cover designers. I am not able to interview Tim Barber from Dissect Designs in the time frame required for this post, but I am able to tell you that he designed my covers for both While the Bombs Fell and Through the Nethergate.
I had ideas in my mind for both covers and Tim did a fantastic job of plucking my thoughts out of my head and turning them into the perfect book cover. Pretty amazing in my opinion.
The cover for Open a new door, the poetry book I co-wrote with poet, Kim Blades, was designed by David Cronin from Moyhill Publishing. I think he did a splendid job of working with my idea and creating an appropriate cover for this book.
The covers for my children’s books I design myself. They are simple and feature one of my own cake and fondant people designs. This is my new banner featuring all my Sir Chocolate book covers designed by Bella from Thoughtsnlife blog:
Bella also designed my new banner for this blog, Roberta Writes:
