One of the reasons that I needed to redesign Essential Magic‘s cover was because of this cover. I spent an inordinate amount of time searching for a model that looked like Olivia. After you read the book, you’ll know that even this one isn’t an exact match–but the emotional expression is a perfect fit.
Once I’d decided on this model, and this particular image, I knew I would have to do something different with Essential Magic. A Theft of Magic still worked, for the most part. I tweaked it a little for the redesign, but it already used the same visual language. Essential Magic didn’t–but it does now!
Here it is, the cover for Memories of Magic:
The print version isn’t 100% done. I’m still tweaking the back cover copy and some of the minor details. But this is pretty much what it will look like:
What do you think? Are you excited to read Olivia’s story? A firm release date for Memories of Magic is coming soon–just as soon as I get my edits back and can estimate the time needed to revise, have copy edits completed, and do the final proofing/formatting. I will put up a preorder link as soon as I have a date.
Feel free to share this post!
Here are all of the covers together. Don’t they look great?
