Thanks! Wait. I drew those other covers.
But seriously, the guy who did the Kobo cover is a Dutch Master. Seriously. He designed Fiji's currency for goodness sakes! He does ad campaigns for Fortune 500 companies and sent me that cover and a cover for the first Molly book. They were "doodles he put together on his day off."
Can you believe that?
I immediately commissioned him to do covers for the other three Molly books. My wife balked when she found out what these would cost me (I insisted to Jasper that I pay a fair price). My argument to my wife was that I'm not splurging on anything for myself with money from book sales, and these are like works of fine art. So please let me commission them.
The cover for the second Molly book is almost done, and it looks spectacular. I can't wait to see what he does with the rest.
