My final book cover design is done! I am in love with it, and hope to splash it all over the world over the next year or two.
For those who may wonder, I was advised by my publisher to remove Rachel’s name from the title, since she is not well-known enough to draw interest. An unknown name, they felt, might actually deter interest. I was happy they liked this alternative. It does use her last name, which also happens to be the longtime, locally recognized name of our shared island house. It’s simple, and more descriptive of what is to be found inside the pages. I hope it draws interest, so Rachel's name will be revitalized!
It was especially gratifying to have one of Rachel Field’s silhouette cut-out illustrations used on the cover. In that way, she is proudly represented.
