Books and the City

So, remember that thing I told you about, the secret project I was working on that was super hush hush... well, we launched today!

Do take a look, and let me know what you think.

And another thing...

The lovely Jane Costello is looking for some readers to star in a promo video for her brand new book - Girl On The Run. If you’re interested, simply upload a video of yourself on YouTube answering the following questions:
1. What do you enjoy about her novels?
2. Which is your favourite Jane Costello book and why?
3. Who is your favourite Jane Costello character?
Then, email the link to jane@janecostello.com – those chosen to appear will receive a signed copy of the new book… and her eternal gratitude! x
So, to celebrate Pay Day last week, I treated myself to a long overdue Book Buy and ordered 16 gorgeous glittery, flittery, embossed, spot UV’d PB’s. Box one was delivered on Wednesday…

Here are my jacket highlights:

The design and font of the authors name -

The embossed title -

The continuing branding -

The flitter on the snowflakes -

The raised gold embossing -

The illustration -

The (quite rare these days) photographic look -

Everything! -

Have started on the Harriet Evans - and as expected, am completely in love with it already.
