Eliza-jane Henry-jones Blog In the Quiet Cover

There's a lot riding on a cover. I've written novels since I was fourteen (all atrocious, of course) and I dreamed up a cover for every single one. A few times, I spent hours making a cover for a story on photoshop (because that's the kinda sad kid I was). When I was in year twelve, my final art project was a novel I had written, typeset and designed. The art teacher even arranged to have it bound with a hardcover, taking me down to the publisher on her lunch break. It's still one of the most remarkable moments I've had - being seventeen and holding that hardcover book, full of my words and wrapped in a cover I'd designed. A cover is an anchor; something to bring the story - the dreaming - into the tangible world. Throughout writing In the Quiet, I fantasised about what sort of cover I could make for it. I dreamt horses and hills and shadows. I dreamt trees and dirt and fields and jacaranda. Sometimes, when the writing was tough, I'd visualise the cover and it would be enough to keep me going; keep me typing.It's such an incredible experience, seeing this beautiful cover, which captures just what I had hoped all of my dreamed up covers would capture.It's such a joy to be able to share it with you!
