So head over there and enter – after having a good look at the cover, and reading on for the blurb and thoughts on the cover from the author, editor and designer.

Cover of The Hollows by Daniel Church

Kieryn Tyler, Designer at Watkins Media: “The Hollows‘ cover perfectly sums up the spooky and desolate setting the novel takes place in.”
Simon Spanton, Editor at Angry Robot: “The forbidding landscape of the Peak District in the depths of winter and Daniel’s evocation of both that and the bleak isolation of the town as the darkness he imagined bears down, made a landscape shot a natural choice for the cover – and our design team came up trumps. The road invites you in, the hills crowd round and the sign carries a warning. I love it – it’s one of those perfect “Does exactly what it says on the tin” covers.
Daniel Church, Author: “Snowbound Derbyshire hills, a road leading to an unknown destination, the ominous danger sign – it’s a pitch-perfect cover that shows the reader exactly what’s in store without even a hint of a spoiler. Superb work. I love it.”
