The COVER REVEAL for Fir for Luck is two days away!
I had never thought about cover quotes before, to be honest.
But it makes such sense: a well respected, well-known author (in my case, of historical fiction) agrees to read your book – often before absolutely everything is perfect.
Then they say something about it. And if it’s positive and they’re happy to have it feature on the cover, it goes on. Simple as that.
The person quoted on the front cover of Fir for Luck is none other than the historical fiction legend Elizabeth Wein, probably best known for Code Name Verity and author of lots of other titles. Only a snippet of what she said about Fir for Luck actually made it onto the book cover, but the things she said made me cry.
In a good way.
And on Saturday, you’ll see the Fir for Luck cover for yourselves! I can’t wait to hear what you think. In the meantime, check out some of Elizabeth’s!
