A week tomorrow it will be Halloween. If all goes well I will be on my annual trip to Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. It is a beautiful place, especially in autumn when the leaves are falling from the trees. The illustrator, Gavin and I have been working on the redesigns for my books. I am really pleased with the latest one. The story is set in Transylvania and features a very peculiar Dracula. It is very apt for this time of year and the book is full of magical surprises. Wishing you a fun and spooky Halloween!
Here is another cover that has been redesigned. I am so happy with what Gavin Childs has done with this cover. It feels magical, dreamy and slightly Tim Burtonesque. It will take a week before the cover is up everywhere and the print book is still being sold with the old cover. I think it will take a least two weeks to show up everywhere. In the meantime you can see it here.
Things have been quiet on my blog recently. This is because I am writing and also working on redesigning the covers for the Delilah Dusticle books. The redesign for A Fairy Extraordinary Christmas Story is now done, I hope you like it!
