It was a great thrill to me recently to discover that the cover of Shopping for Love received the August eBook Cover Award in a contest run by a very talented cover artist (Melody Simmons) at http://ebookindiecovers.com.
Finding the right cover art is one of my nightmares (right up there with finding the right title; it's a little known fact that Shopping for Love had Supermarket Sweep as its working title!) and this was one I had almost begun to despair of happening. When it did, of course, I was delighted with it.
Melody chose it for its clean, bright colours, elegant fonts and eye-catching concept of the design. She said the shopping trolley was well-blended in with a suitable background. Credit for Shopping for Love's cover goes to Kimberly Killion of Hot Damn Designs but Melody herself is an extremely talented cover artist whose site is well worth a visit.
So thanks for the award, Melody. Considering the really excellent competition from the other finalists, it was an honour just to be among them, and a real accolade to be the winner.
