To be honest I feel slightly fraudulent making a song and dance about this cover, because it’s one of the quickest so far. Never mind, eh.
May I introduce you to the cover for Murder in the Choir, the second book in the Pippa Parker Mysteries series!
If you’ve seen the cover for Murder at the Playgroup you might recognise some of the elements; the Murder font, the script font, and the blue sky. I wanted to keep the same cartoony feel, and originally I’d thought of having musical notes representing the characters. However, when I posted the draft in a Facebook group for cozy mystery writers, most people weren’t keen on the notes. One inspired person suggested singing snowmen, and, well, here we are. I also added a key to the stave behind Choir – any guesses?!
And the book itself? Well, it’s currently passing through betas etc, but the aim is… by Christmas! Eek! Watch this space!
