After many years of hosting cover reveals for other authors, today I get to reveal the cover for my debut, ‘Libby and the Parisian Puzzle,’ illustrated by the brilliant Becka Moor. This is the first book in ‘The Travelling School Mysteries’ and will be published by Firefly Press on March 10th 2022. I’m so excited to be sharing it with you here first. The lovely Becka Moor has created this incredible animated cover for the reveal today so you’re in for a huge treat!!
I am naturally biased but I absolutely love everything about the cover. Stunningly, illustrated and designed by Becka Moor, I think it’s the perfect introduction to, ‘The Travelling School Mysteries.’ Libby and her best friend Connie take centre stage and she cleverly gives us a real insight into their personalities. Can you guess which one is Libby and which one is Connie? If you look carefully you’ll also spy lots of clues about the story hidden in the cover. Regulars to the blog will know I’m a huge fan of illustrated fiction, so I’m thrilled to share that the book will feature more illustrations inside from Becka.
Let’s find out what we have instore for you in this brand new mystery…
