A Tale of Two Covers

I have long been aware of the difference of covers in different countries, based on their own tastes and sensibilities.  So, it was no surprise to have two different covers designed for my first novel, Amity & Sorrow, but I wasn’t prepared for just how different – and how beautiful – they both would be.  First up is the gorgeous Tinder Press cover, designed here in the UK:

Below is a screen shot from the US catalogue for Little, Brown.  Amity & Sorrow is there in all its glory, and I am wild with joy at the both of them.

  3. They are both gorgeous but so completely different. Do you have a sneaky favourite?

    • Thank you very much! You know what? I really don’t. I so admire both publishers and was included in both design processes. They are totally different, but both fit the book!

    Both are great, but what was the rationale behind each?

  6. Oh my gosh, I’m such an American. Those marketing peeps sure do know their audiences. I adore the second one –it almost tells a story in and of itself. 🙂
