Christmas with Death
Christmas is for miracles, merriment, and murder.
Here’s the joy of working with a great cover design group like Deranged Doctor Design:
- I say artist in Greece, they find images with sketches of Greece.
- I say heroine’s favorite color is periwinkle; they find a place to use it.
- I say set in early 20th century; they find a costumed model with a period-appropriate dress.
- I say beach; they give me a beach with a lovely sunset.
- They actually gave me two cover options, one with a beached boat that had lovely colors . . . but no boat in this book.
Give your cover designer ideas but very little direction. Trust the designer’s aesthetic.
Find a cover designer with your aesthetic; my search took almost two years, which gave me time to focus on other writing. The wait was useful: I published the first three books in the Hearts in Hazard series back to back, which I believe increased their sales.
