Cover Reveal

I’m so excited to finally be able to share the cover for ‘Desperately Seeking Heaven’ due for release on 27th August 2013!  What do you think?

 Desperately Seeking Heaven

I know I’m biased but I think it’s lovely!  I had to prepare an art brief for the cover designers where I came up with a few suggestions for the content, colours, styling etc.  It was the first time I’d ever done one so to be honest I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing, but after a bit of brainstorming I was able to jot down a few tentative ideas and once I started all sorts of wonderful possible scenarios popped into my head.  Most of which involved gilt and gold and glitter… Tacky, moi?

I was really eager to see which of my ideas the designers would use and when I had my first peak of the cover I was overwhelmed.  They’d got it spot on.  It didn’t bear any relation to the art brief I’d done (thank goodness – looking at it again now I realise it was absolute rubbish and I don’t have a second career in graphic design waiting for me) yet it was absolutely perfect.  So I can’t take any credit for the wonderful cover, but I do think it sums up the novel beautifully; fun, flirty and deliciously romantic.

Here’s the official blurb too:

Love always comes when you least expect it, at least that’s what PA Alice Fletcher tells herself as she looks forward to another Friday night of trash telly and wine-for-one. But what happens when the unexpected is daytime TV crush Jimmy Mack, and he’s sitting on your couch watching the news…of the accident that claimed his life? Soon, Alice finds her ordered life turned upside down by helping Jimmy right the wrongs of his life so he can cross over to the ‘other side.’ But most unexpected of all is Alice’s growing realisation that her gorgeous ghost has taken up residence in her heart as well as in her home.

Desperately Seeking Heaven by Jill Steeples published by Carina UK 27th August 2013

      No hyvää menoa vaan, en usko että jään kaipaamaan trollinpoikasta. Älä jätä häntää ovenväliin.Siinä vaiheessa kun keskustellaan minun ihmisoikeuksistani — ja mutkan kautta kaikkien muidenkin ihmisoikeuksista, oikeudesta rakastaa toista täysivaltaista ja oikeustoimikelpoista ihmistä — näin pällillä väittelytavalla, niin varmasti vähän vituttaa.

      I have a video game room in desperate need of something on the walls that’s not associated with Fear & Loathing.Also, the green in that poster would compliment the general haze of trees that always seems to be present.

      Na miña opinión non se debería «xogar» desa maneira cos animais porque como di Pablo provoca defectos xenéticos (por exemplo no caso do pastor alemán provoca unha articulación de cadeira deformada e ríxida que lle produce dolor o can; e no caso do Boston terrier provoca problemas ao mastigar debido a un crecemento anormal da mandíbula…) e ademáis enfermidades… O problema e que mentres haxa demanda… habrá oferta…

      It’s much easier to understand when you put it that way!

      Earlier revolts were about too little freedom and too much bad times. Sixties revolt was about too much freedom and too much good times.

      I use anything … spiral notebooks, legal pads, B+W composition notebooks for sketching ideas. I then write all my gag ideas into one notebook and use that as the Bible.There's always several pads or books with stuff in them laying around.
