Fall of a Sparrow

“I was truly amazed when my cover arrived in just a few days”

S.J. Hamilton, author of Fall of a Sparrow

This was my first foray into the world of cover design. I chose spiffingcovers because I liked the name and the logo and the package of support on offer seemed well worth the cost. I was truly amazed when the first draft of my cover arrived by email in just a few days. The image was both realistic and metaphoric, immediately evoking the genre of crime fiction and raising questions in the mind of the viewer. The key works symbolically while also indicating an important aspect of the plot. The earthy colours and the attention to detail enhance the effect, particularly the pooling of blood, the single droplet nearby and the single feather falling. “WOW, what a powerful cover,” one reader has written. “I know you don’t judge a book by its cover, but this cover makes me want to read it,” writes another. “Fabulous cover,” emails a third. But the services extend beyond the cover to providing ISBNs for both e-versions and print versions and a widget. I will definitely be using spiffingcovers for my next novel.
