Jason Anscomb of Rawshock Design who has designed all our covers, ran with this idea of floating different elements into place to form the Monster’s Wife. It seemed so perfect for its subject, a creature assembled by Dr Viktor Frankenstein. She went through many drafts … the first quite twisted and grim. This one has a curious beauty. Terrific original art, we say. Thanks Jason … and to all who voted. And bravo The Qwillery for running the award.
The novel is great too! It takes you, as Sara Maitland says, ‘to new places, where the darkness of Frankenstein meets the darkness of isolated communities of love and fear and survival.’ It’s about love too. Dare to go there!
