There’s a famous saying about never forming your opinion of a book by the jacket adorning it. But most people do in fact judge books by their covers, all the time. Everything about a book’s cover - the font, the images, the colours - tells us something about what we can expect to find, or not, inside. I want the covers of my clients' books to do justice to the amazing life story narrated, and I am delighted now to be working with professional graphic designer, Ros Ingram. Ros is an artist/illustrator with a flare for the creative and evocative. Her front covers are simple, descriptive, powerful and more. Take a look at some of them on my FB page

The Aluminium Man is hot off the press! David had written his own story - a War and Peace undertaking of nearly 100,000 words - when he contacted me about making it into a book. I gave him guidance about improving readability - making sure he had a great title, interesting chapter headings and an intriguing back cover blurb, using Grammarly to improve grammar and punctuation, getting a trusted friend or two to read his story and give honest feedback, and paying attention to the final chapter where he could reflect on his life and why he decided to put pen to paper. The result is a wonderful memoir about science, travel and family which is going to be sent to friends and relatives in Australia, Spain, Dubai and the US.
