Open Book Blog Hop – 16 March Book covers

This week, the Open Book Blog Hop bloggers are interviewing their book cover designers. I am not able to interview Tim Barber from Dissect Designs in the time frame required for this post, but I am able to tell you that he designed my covers for both While the Bombs Fell and Through the Nethergate.

I had ideas in my mind for both covers and Tim did a fantastic job of plucking my thoughts out of my head and turning them into the perfect book cover. Pretty amazing in my opinion.



The cover for Open a new door, the poetry book I co-wrote with poet, Kim Blades, was designed by David Cronin from Moyhill Publishing. I think he did a splendid job of working with my idea and creating an appropriate cover for this book.


The covers for my children’s books I design myself. They are simple and feature one of my own cake and fondant people designs. This is my new banner featuring all my Sir Chocolate book covers designed by Bella from Thoughtsnlife blog:

Bella also designed my new banner for this blog, Roberta Writes:

  1. What a clever topic. I love how you display your covers (might steal that idea) and am quite impressed with your new banner. I’m going to see if Canva will allow me to do something like it.

    1. I think Canva does that for banners. I like to use banners on Publisher, set any width I want. My current header for my blog, I set it to 19 x 8.5, imported (copied and pasted) my own photo and book cover and so forth…

          1. I think PP and Publisher are great for many things. I’ve used the calendar on Publisher for as long as I can remember. When I was working, I used PP for presentations and training at work and used Publisher to do the workbook/handout for the Parent Involvement Conference because it involved in graphics, charts, floor plan of the resort and workshop rooms, advertisements from sponsors. My other part of the job required me to use Access and Excel. It was fun learning on the job.
