New Cover Release

As much as I loved the cover for, Maggie’s Child, when the opportunity came for me to have a redesigned version, I jumped at the chance. Jessica Bell ~ author, not only writes books, she is a songwriter and book cover designer. 

Maggies-Child-eBook-coverMaggie Sawbury, lives on Windtop Farm. In my vision it is a dark, miserable place with a meadow that Maggie turns into her favourite place. Maggie, despite wanting so desperately to be a mother, abandons her child in a basket beside the road. She watches as another walks away with him.

My old cover female had become, Maggie. In my mind she was the woman I tried to portray. With skill she was lifted from one cover to another.

Today I checked to see if the paperback version was on show on Amazon. It isn’t just yet, but to my joy, I found that Maggie’s Child had reached #52 in Women’s Historical Literature category. It reached the top 100 best-seller list for paid books. I know the book won’t stay there because of algorithm’s and such-like, but it happened and I smiled. I am convinced the new cover caught the eye of a different group of readers. Someone stated it looked very Wuthering Heights, and that made me smile as it is just the desolate image I wanted for the story.
