More book covers...

Have a wee peek below at some other book covers I've had the joy of designing. Many of them include illustrations I have created and some have used stock imagery that I've manipulated to fit with the tone of the book!

I discovered Catherine through my Alliance of Independent Authors membership as she was a partner member, so I knew from the off she was a person who I could trust.


Throughout the consultation and quote process, she was clear, friendly, and helpful. I knew exactly how she could help me, the timescales she could work to, and what to expect. She lays everything out for you in an easy-to-understand contract that’s free of jargon, and is more than happy to answer any questions you have. I had a look at examples of her work on her website and was impressed by the range of styles. She has designed some fantastic, vibrant covers that were exactly what I was looking for, so I was confident I had made the right choice to workwith her.


One of the things that impressed me most about Catherine was how much she cares about making your book look as great as you want it to. She’s happy to make as many amends and tweaks as you want until you are completely satisfied, although it didn’t take many as the initial design choices she came up with were amazing! She’s honest, helpful, and responds quickly when you have a question.

I couldn’task for more.

I have a few friends who are just setting out on their writing journey and I’ve already recommended her for their front covers. As for me, I love my cover (and so do my readers) and I’ll be working with her on plenty more books in future!

Paul Waters,

author of All Downhill From Here.

I work with Catherine in two ways. Firstly as an author. Catherine has designed and created beautiful, original, eye-catching covers for all eight of my books and these are very often complimented by readers.


Secondly, I work with Catherine in my role managing Heddon Publishing, where Catherine has created designs for many of the authors I work with. Catherine’s work is extremely wide-ranging and versatile, whether she is creating something from scratch or working from existing artwork that the author has provided.

Her skills and experience are excellent, and her understanding of what makes a good book cover. She is always helpful, and a pleasure to work with. I would not go anywhere else for my own books and I will always recommend her to other authors.
