Cover Reveal! ~Sophie’s Turn~

This is it! The ultimate cover for Sophie’s Turn.  How excited am I?

Why another new cover, you ask?  Quite simply, another new cover marks the start of a new era for Sophie’s Turn, the first published edition coming out from Sapphire Star Publishing on 6 September 2012.  As for those of you who’ve been following my publishing journey, it’ll strike you that actually, this new, ultimate cover is quite similar to the last version you saw.  That’s because the amazing folks over at Sapphire Star Publishing liked the concept so much, they didn’t want to change it much at all.  Thank you!  🙂  But check out the subtle changes… see if you can spot the differences!  I’m enchanted, personally.

Huge congratulations go out to the original creator, Jessie Dalrymple–see, I told you you rock. 🙂

And here it is! Cover first, but don’t miss the credits below…

Here’s the credits, with HUGE thanks:

Cover design:  Chad Lichtenhan

Original design concept:  Jessie Dalrymple

Over the coming days and weeks, you will gradually see this cover appear on all the usual sites, beginning with the book icon in the top right-hand sidebar of this very blog.  Hooray!

So… what do you think?

    I love it!! Very subtle differences but they make it look softer and more dreamy 🙂

  2. It’s gorgeous Nicky! x

    Fabulous, Nicky! Yes, the carousel is definitely more dreamy – or is it swishing around furiously?! I’ve always loved the typeface, too.

    • Hi Joanna! It’s moving gently, hence the blur. And it’s all a bit of a blur for Sophie too, it’s happening so fast… she’ll need some time to think soon. So thrilled you like it. 🙂 x

  4. The moving carousel depicts the whirlwind 🙂 Good luck for Sept x

  5. I think it looks ENCHANTING xXx

    • Fantastic! We love to enchant people, mission accomplished. I know you liked the original pink cover with the sign post… but hasn’t it come a long, beautiful way since? Thanks for commenting, Rea!

  6. That’s really pretty : ) It has a fantastical quality about it. And now Turn for me has a double meaning as carousel’s turn too. I hope your cover serves your novel well! x

    • It does! The carousel is of vital importance, especially the fact that it turns. **chuckles** It may ‘only’ be romcom, but the title and the cover work on many levels… thanks for visiting, Yasmin!

  7. I love it Nicky! Congratulations. I know it will be a big success.

  8. Love the new font too, Nicky! Congrats!

  11. What a compliment and I agree, the font is excellent, there is a touch of magic promised within it. Bonne chance!

  17. Hello, Nicky ! Congratulations, you received The Versatile Blogger Award. Here is the link to my blog, please take a look:

  18. Neat font (Sorry, I love fonts) Interesting image, having one slightly distorted. I’m sure a new book cover is always exciting!

  19. Nicky, just found your blog, and I’m loving your cover. I have never seen the original cover, so I don’t know what the changes are, but this looks great!!

    • Hi there! thanks for joining me and for your wonderful feedback. It makes me so happy that people really like this cover! And regarding not having seen the old one… funny you should mention this, I’m about to post a ‘from there to here’ feature, looking back at where and how I started. Comin’ your way later today! Am hopping across to your blog now to say ‘hi’ too!

      • Thanks, Nicky, that means a lot. And I will be looking at your from there to here article. That sounds like it will be a very interesting one. Since blog audiences change so much, it will be a good one for your new readers, and your older readers will appreciate that kind of perspective.

      • 🙂 I hope they do! I always worry slightly that I may be perceived as being boastful, when that’s not my intention. I just like to share my excitement, and my insights along the way. Hope you enjoy when you do get a chance to look at it, and am very excited to have ‘met’ you on our respective blogs. 🙂

      • I, too, am excited we met each other. 🙂
        And don’t worry about being perceived as boastful. I have just met you but have not seen a touch of that.

      • 🙂 You’re so sweet, thank you! x
