When I received the proofs for The Nightmare Factory cover through my letterbox, I actually screamed. This was the big moment which made everything feel REAL. I was actually going to have a book published!!! I started imagining it on shelves and in shop windows. The first thing I did (after doing a happy dance all over the house of course) was to fold one up and put it around an actual book. You know, just to see what it was going to look like!
I had been told by my agent and other authors that Orchard Books always created amazing covers, but I still had no idea what to expect with my own cover. What if I hated it? What if I didn’t think they’d got the characters right? I’d seen an earlier version and had asked them to brighten the colours. What if they were still too dull? There were so many worries. Thankfully, I LOVE it with a capital L. The colours, the design, the font, everything. But maybe I’m slightly biased, what do you guys think?
