Thank you Andreas Stridsberg: Photographer Responsible for darkness Cover

Something I have been meaning to do for a long time and am finally getting around to! Swedish photographer, Andreas Stridsberg is responsible for the cover of my last book, the darkness between the stars.

As you can see from image below, the cover is eye-catching, whimsical and stunning:

The bookjacket is the first thing a potential reader notices, and if they are drawn to the image, they are very likely to want to see what lies between the covers, so a brilliant cover image like this one is invaluable. This is my favourite cover image to date and from the feedback I’ve had from both booksellers and readers, it’s a hit!
Thank you Andreas!
