New Cover For Memory

February 18th, 2013

Emily Irwin has created a new cover for my novel Memory and I love it.

MEMORY - cover art by Emily Irwin

Emily is a graphic artist currently working and living in Montreal, but she grew up here on Maui and went to high school with my kids. She first read Memory in high school and has read it several times since. My daughter knew I wanted a new cover, and suggested I connect with Emily–which I did.

Emily listened to my very vague cover ideas, and created a series of thumbnail sketches incorporating my ideas and some of her own, and then, as a whim, she added one more concept, much more abstract and fantastical than the others. That was the image both my daughter and I immediately gravitated toward, and the end result is the cover above. I’m very pleased, and I hope this cover will give new life to the book.

Emily’s cover will be going live on the ebook over the next few days, and will be featured on a new print edition of Memory, coming soon.

    Very nice, instantly my favorite. Please leave the large there indefinitely (I was only telling someone about _Memory_ in email yesterday, this is “a picture tells a thousand words” for me).
