Alaskan Magic--Carol McPhee


Cover of Alaskan Magic--Carol McPhee--http://www.geocities.com/carolmcphee2003

Did you design the cover?

I requested certain things be on the cover and let the artist take it from there.

Did you get to give any input about the cover design?

I asked for a raven, a wolf, and a bush plane because these things are crucial elements in my story. The artist added the moon and dark purple background.

Is there an interesting story behind the cover design? If so, please share the details.

The first design was difficult to see. The raven was perched on a limb which due to its position made the plane look weird. Besides, the plane wasn't right, so at my suggestion the artist substituted another more accurate one.

Who is the cover artist?

Chris Butts at Champagne Books designed the cover of Alaskan Magic.

Are you happy with the cover?

I'm very happy with the cover.

Tell us what you think is the best part of the cover.

The best part is the immediate eerie feeling each object conveys.

Is there anything else about your cover that we need to know?

There are a couple of scenes in Alaskan Magic where moonlight sets the spookiness of each scene so it's fitting to have it looking down from above.

What a tempting book cover! Best of luck with the book. If I saw it on a bookstore shelf, this cover would "cause" me to pick it up and look inside.
