When the Floods Came Featured in the Stylist

My book cover design for When the Floods Came was featured in the Stylist magazine. (Issue 24th February 2016, A Woman’s Place is in the White House.) It was in the regular section, Book Wars. The battle was against The Maker of Swans by Paraic O’Donnell and it won!
