Book Cover Release – The Copper Box

FC-The-Copper-Box-Final-smallerI had a wonderful time working with Suzanne Bratcher on the cover of her cozy mystery, The Copper Box. The Copper Box is a contemporary suspense set in the ghost town of Jerome, Arizona. Suzanne had great ideas for images for her cover which made my job a breeze. Blending the image of her main character with the copper mining scene hopefully created an intriguing cover that will entice readers to open the pages. Here’s a snippet for you to consider.

Jerome, Arizona: the largest ghost town in America

Antiques expert Marty Greenlaw comes to Jerome to face the horror that haunts her dreams: Did she kill her little sister twenty-two years ago?

Historian Paul Russell is in Jerome to face his own horror: Was the car crash that killed his wife his fault?

Their lives become intertwined when an old lady dies on a long staircase in a vintage Victorian house. As Marty and Paul search the house for a small copper box Marty believes will unlock the mystery, accidents begin to happen.

Someone else wants the copper box—someone willing to commit murder to get it. As Marty and Paul face the shadows in the house and in their lives, they must learn to put the past behind them and run the race God is calling them to.

The Copper Box is currently on ebook pre-order and will release on June 6th on Amazon.

TBT – Deadly Doll

Cover---Deadly-Doll(originally posted 8.26.2015)

Deadly Doll by Brooke Cox is a wonderful mystery very similar to the Nancy Drew mysteries I grew up reading. Teenage Brooksie searches for answers to the deaths that are linked to a doll sent from Alaska by her grandfather years ago.

For the cover, Brooke wanted bright colors and she wanted to incorporate the original doll that she had photographed. Since the doll’s color palette was a little, unusual, shall we say, I blended a black and white copy into the yellow background giving it a somewhat sinister look. A serious looking Brooksie completed the cover along with type and a huge blood splatter.

Deadly Doll is available on Amazon from Mantle Rock Publishing in both print book and eBook.
