Lucy Daniels and a Trio of Hope Meadows Novels

These three Hope Meadows books are based on the globally bestselling Lucy Daniels Animal Ark series. It is set in the Yorkshire countryside and makes a perfect escapism read.

I’m excited to finally share all three book cover designs which I art directed for: Summer at Hope Meadows, Christmas at Mistletoe Cottage and Springtime at Wildacre. All credit for the gorgeous illustrations and title hand lettering goes to the super talented Sara Mulvanny. I loved seeing all the extra little animals that Sara has created for each one which then continues across to the back covers. It has also been my mission to get rabbits on one of my book covers, so I am glad that the Springtime cover has three!!!

The Waking Land Cover Reveal

Here is another young adult fantasy trilogy that I’ve been working on has had a cover reveal!

The brief was to create a beautiful and lush image with filtered lights and rich colours. The main character is an 18 year old girl who has the magical ability to speak to the tree and rocks with her hands, so it is important to convey a dark forest with this sense of overgrowing greenery.
