Cover Reveal: Anon, Sir, Anon



Cover reveals are such fun! Today I'm participating in the reveal of Rachel Heffington's latest cover. If her name sounds familiar, you might already follow her at The Inkpen Authoress. Or you might recall my review of her debut, Fly Away Home. Or perhaps you remember her being featured here for the Five Glass Slippers blog tour. Yes, Rachel is proving to be a prolific indie author!

Her next release is titled Anon, Sir, Anon, and here's a little more info about the book...
The 12:55 out of Darlington brought more than Orville Farnham's niece; murder was passenger.

In coming to Whistlecreig, Genevieve Langley expected to find an ailing uncle in need of gentle care. In reality, her charge is a cantankerous Shakespearean actor with a penchant for fencing and an affinity for placing impossible bets.

When a body shows up in a field near Whistlecreig Manor and Vivi is the only one to recognize the victim, she is unceremoniously baptized into the art of crime-solving: a field in which first impressions are seldom lasting and personal interest knocks at the front door.

Set against the russet backdrop of a Northamptonshire fog, Anon, Sir, Anon cuts a cozy path to a chilling crime. 

Sounds intriguing, no? Be looking for my review in the next month or so! The book's official release is November 5th.


 And now, without further ado, here is the cover!


My Thoughts: It's simple but striking. I love the contrast in colors, and the main font along with the layout makes it feel very mystery-novel-esque. The berries and bike add a touch of whimsy that makes me curious as to their roles in the story. The lack of character or setting depictions keeps you in suspense, which is fitting for a mystery, wouldn't you say? ;)

What are your thoughts on the cover? Will you be adding Anon, Sir, Anon to your TBR stack this fall?

Excellent "contras" observation, Amber - I agree! It's cool to see that contrast in colors. Makes it stand out - I just love the whimsy with the bicycle in the middle. So cute. :)

Thanks for the help, Amber! I am so glad the cover did what I wanted it to do: reveal and conceal at once. So there we go.

Rissi,

Why, thank you! ;) The text and images really do "pop" against the gray background, don't they? And yes, the touch of whimsy is darling!

Rachel,

You're welcome! And that's a great way to put it - both revealing and concealing. :) Nicely done, and congratulations on this upcoming release!
