new cover - plus a call to UK authors

Current work: Venice book (rewrite)
Listening to: Corelli (am in stress mode now)
Reading: next on TBR

Still head down, desperately working (and don’t ask about the gianduja consumption or the amount of proper caffeinated coffee I’m drinking: I’m overdoing it on both counts).

So instead of talking, today, I’m leaving you a picture: this is my first new-style cover for Medical Romance, in a 2-in-1 with my mate Janice Lynn. A Christmas Knight is out in December (sorry, that might be a wee bit obvious from the title!).


Call to UK authors (as per Society of Authors email) – please visit ALCS and sign their petition about PLR (if you’re not UK-based, the proposed cuts don’t affect you, so please ignore). Cheers!

Wowser! Just ... wow.

These new Medical covers are lovely. Really lovely. I think they're actually the best out of the whole cover redesign push that I've seen so far. Medicals have always suffered from an old-fashioned feel for me, but this makes them look sharp and cutting-edge and very sexy indeed. Can't wait to see them in the shops, but I've been laid-up in bed this week with a terrible cold, turning into a touch of chronic bronchitis now. The joy ...

Ooh, those new covers are great! Good luck with your writing fest, am trying to do the same. (Deadline approaching but the writing is going far too slowly.) And the more I stare at the deadline, the slower things seem to move...

Caroline said...

Great new covers Kate. And hope the rewrite behaves itself and gets done! Caroline x

Lacey Devlin said...

Wow! They really are different aren't they :)

New cover looks simply gorgeous, Kate. Thought of you last week when myself and the other half were trawling around Dorset museum, half of which was dedicated to Thomas Hardy. It was amazing and I even discovered he had a little sister called Kate.
Don't know if you've ever been there, but if you haven't, then it's worth a trip. Dorchester is gorgeous, full of history and old buildings and all things writerly.

Oh, wow! I love the new cover.

Kate Hardy said...

Jan - thanks :)

Jane - thanks, and hope that your lurgy has improved hugely.

Carol - good luck with the deadline.

Caroline - thanks, and I hope so too as it's on my ed's desk!

Lacey - yep! (I was hoping for a knight in shining armour on that one, but I guess that might've been a bit much for readers!)

Nicolette - yes, Dorchester is fab - glad you had such a good time. DH and I stayed in Dorset for our first ever holiday together, and we discovered that all roads led to Dorchester! (And we visited Thomas Hardy's cottage, which is lovely, and then over the border to Exeter cathedral so I could see The Exeter Book - bless him, he was pretty indulgent!)

Shirley - thanks! (I still have cover envy over Presumed Dead, though.)
