#CRAFTS WITH ANASTASIA--FACELIFT, PART 3

If you’ve been following the blog lately, you know that the last two Mondays I’ve featured posts on the rebranding of the Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mysteries. Two weeks ago I showcased the new cover for Crewel Intentions, and last week I showcased the new cover for Mosaic Mayhem. Up today is the new cover for Patchwork Peril, the third novella in the series. Of course, once again author Lois Winston has planted me firmly in peril (hence the title, get it?)

But it’s no laughing matter when I discover my elderly neighbor unconscious at the bottom of her basement stairs. Luckily, I had rushed out in the middle of a rainstorm to rescue Rosalie’s quilts, which were whipping around on her clothesline and in jeopardy of flying off to parts unknown. Otherwise, who knows how long the poor woman would have been lying crumbled on her basement floor?

Rosalie’s estranged niece Jane flies east to care for her during her recovery, but Rosalie suspects Jane’s motives are less than altruistic and even accuses Jane of trying to kill her.

Is Rosalie’s paranoia a result of her head injury, or is there something more to her accusations? All I know is that I need to uncover the truth before it’s too late.

Do I? Read Patchwork Peril to find out.

I love it, Lois. The red splat smacks you instantly.

Lois Winston said...

Thanks, Vicki! I thought having the pool of blood helped tie the graphics of all three covers together.

Thumbs up!

Lois Winston said...

Thanks, Sally!

I would try to keep the An Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mini Mystery tag all on one line. Maybe make the Anastasia Pollack in a larger font than Crafting Mini Mystery. (Sorry, I'm a critical person by nature, but otherwise, looks very professional.)

Thanks for your input, TravisAnn.

Lois Winston said...

Thanks, Heather, Mary, and Anonymous! I designed the covers myself. Like Anastasia, I have a art degree. Mine was earned back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, though, and everything was done by hand. I had to teach myself how to use Photoshop.

These are great updates. They bring modernity but keep the tone of the books as well.

Thanks so much, Mabry!
