Hedge Witch Cover Reveal

Wednesday, 28 November 2012

Today I'm delighted to reveal Morrigan Books' cover for Hedge Witch:



It was designed by the very talented Amanda Pillar. What do you think? I love the mystery of it. And the crows. Can't ever have enough crows...

We're aiming for an April 2013 release. Lots of editing to do before then...

  4. Nice, Simon. Very sexy, but I didn't see the black smudges as crows - perhaps they could be slightly less blurred?

  6. Sue - We did experiment a bit with a larger/more obvious crows but came back to this. Take your point, though. Tricky things covers!

    Kate - thanks.

  9. It looks fantastic! I'm waiting for the first ideas on my book's cover, and I must admit I'm nervous...the cover draws readers in so has to be spot on. This is full of atmosphere...and no-one has enough crows.

  10. Thanks, Rebecca. And, yes, it's a really tricky thing to get right. I looked at hundreds of published covers and poor Amanda at Morrigan sent me numerous ideas. We got there in the end!

    Looking forward to seeing yours!

  11. Wow. That is just lovely, Simon. You must be chuffed to bits.

  12. Deborah - chuffed for sure. A little scared, too...

  13. Stunning cover, Simon. I was wondering if you were interested in a spot on my weekly Speculative Fiction Writer post? I can interview you or you can write a guest post promoting your book, website, or anything to do with your writing. There should be one spot free in February (2oth or 27th) or any Wednesday from March onwards. Let me know what you think.

  14. Ellie,

    I'd be delighted to take part! Feb 27th might be good as Hedge Witch should be out fairly soon after that. Many thanks for asking.
