Another great design from Boja. She interpreted the brief really well and produced an attractive blend of classic and contemporary.
Very happy with the quality of my design and they were very quick to respond to all my concerns.

Kostis was a real pleasure to work with. Fast, friendly, and, of course, really talented. He helped bring my book to life and was patient with the changes. I hope to work with him on a future project. Highly recommended!
Great design and easy to communicate with.
How gill.puzey started their book cover journey
Single Woman Seeks Normal Bloke
Decades ago I fancied I could write ghost and horror stories, immersed as I was at the time in Dennis Wheatley books, scaring myself into countless sleepless nights. But I never did.
Instead my working life contained all manner of non-writing activities, and I scratched the creative itch with a bit of drawing, painting and crafting.
Then Facebook became a willing forum for some sarcastic comments (my dad would have been so disappointed in my stooping as low as sarcasm) and mildly disrespectful – but humorous - observations, and that creative itch demanded a much more vigorous scratch.
I hope the result brings a few smiles.
(It's not really Romance - rather Humour - but no other genre really fitted.)
What follows is what's on the back of my existing (amateur) cover:
"What starts as a quest for a relationship, or at least someone to go out with on a Saturday night, quickly degenerates into a series of hilariously irreverent observations of a more ... mature ... woman on her first ventures into online dating sites."
Adults - not specifically women as you might expect. Generally British people because of the many references to figures well known to Brits. Audience age ideally 40-70 but can reach 30-80 based on current readership.
Book cover type
Kindle Direct Publishing
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Looking for a replacement for current book cover (see Amazon).
Trim size 5.25" wide, 8" high, spine 1.905 cm (sorry for mix of inches and cms). Bleed 3.2mm.
Mood: light-hearted, fun, amusing. Something that shows the hopelessness of it all - in a funny way.
I like the hand-drawn idea but am open to other suggestions.
There will be at least two further books, if that makes any difference. The first future book will be USA-focused where this one is UK-focused.
What to avoid
Anything that makes it look like a book specifically for women.
