Harmless Like You is shortlisted for The Desmond Elliot Prize 2017 and see my paperback cover design in the banner. I have said this numerous times but I’ll say it again anyway, this book is AMAZING!! (Not just saying it because I designed the cover.)

Harmless Like You Paperback Edition

I have designed a new cover for the paperback edition of Harmless Like You. I am really pleased with the outcome and the book is an amazing read. In the past 1960s narrative, a Japanese girl has an ambition to be an artist, in the present day narrative her son is dealing with his feelings from his mother’s abandonment. I love how each chapter beginning, beautifully describes a different colour of paint that sets a particular mood. You can read examples of this on my Quotes page.

Plus an added bonus to this, there was a Q&A session with the editor Francine Toon too. It was really interesting to get a further insight into the characters and themes. Also it reminded me just how much I LOVED reading this amazing book all over again!

It was lovely to have a chat with Rowan and she also signed a copy of my proof.
