Book Cover

Creating Book Covers

For the covers of my collections No Way Home and Dear Lucifer and Other Stories, I had the great fortune of working with someone who is not only a great friend but also a great designer, David Löwe, from Berlin, Germany.

To find out how David approaches design in general, and the covers for my books in particular, I caught up with him recently, asking him on how he comes up with his ideas, how he uses typography, the challenge of eBooks and the importance of animation in presenting book designs.

To read the interview, complete with illustrations, short movies and revealing insights into the creative process, go here.

You can see more of David’s work and some of what inspires him on Instagram.


No Way Home, is available now, on: Apple Books, Amazon, Google Play and Kobo.

Dear Lucifer & Other Stories is out now on: Apple Books, Amazon, Google Play and Kobo.

A Pinterest in my favourite books

For a little while now, I’ve had a board on Pinterest with covers of some of my favourite books.

It’s still nascent, but growing all the time. Come over a join me, and maybe post some books of your own.

See the Great books board here, or use the Pincode.
