Cover art and design for 'Once in a Lifetime'

I don't get to work with romantic themes very often, so I jumped at the chance to work on a 'not-your-typical-sappy-romance' book cover when Keith Gardner contacted me with the Once in a Lifetime project. 

A little about the story ...

True Love . . . is it real, and does it actually happen?

Well, Roger and Suzette were sure that it had for them. From their first ever meeting at school in this heart-warming story when they were both only ten years of age. They would soon become inseparable, beginning as childhood sweethearts, which would then lead up to much more as the following years unfolded.

Life as we know it though, is never always a bed of roses. There are highs, just as there are lows. There can be happiness, just as there can also be sadness.

You can follow their story, seen from various viewpoints. Will it be a very happy one, or one tinged with sadness. What you will read, could make you smile, bring you to tears, even just to laugh, or offer a huge sigh. A lump in the throat perhaps, or the simple sensation of  complete enjoyment. How you will see this story for yourself is what will matter the most.

Onto wrapping up the next book :D

Until next time ...

  1. Glad you put the blurb about the book there - otherwise you would have left me wondering why, when depicting romance, your first thought was of the graveyard.

    1. Well, a cover's job is meant to make the reader question what's inside, so a romance with a graveyard visual may do just that. You think?


Thanks for stopping by and adding your appreciated comments.
