Hunting The Egret by Bryn Colvin

Did you design the cover?

I very much wanted an egret on the cover, but the layout was entirely Tom Brown’s work.

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

I didn’t need to once it was under way - other than reminding Tom which name I was using for this one! I got to see the cover as it developed from pencil sketch to finished piece – a fascinating process and one requiring no input from me.

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

I first met artist Tom Brown when he was working at Whiskey Creek Press. He isn’t an in house artist at LYD, but the publisher is brilliantly flexible about letting us sort out our own stuff if we want to. Tom and I have worked together on some graphic novel projects. I’m a huge fan of his work.

Who is the cover artist?

Tom Brown

Are you happy with the cover?

I love it so much I’m buying the original to hang over my fireplace.

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

I love the fact that it’s a totally original and unique piece of artwork.

Is there anything else about your cover that we need to know? Feel free to share.

I think it speaks for itself.

Please provide your website link.

What is the link to buy your book?
