Small Blue Thing

Well things are hotting up here in terms of Small Blue Thing and the book is now copy edited and ready to go for a final proof read and then typesetting. We are also in the process of designing the cover, and have some great ideas which are now taking shape – we want to create a really strong package that will appeal to all those pre-teen readers who love a romance with a bit of adventure thrown in too!

We are also really excited about the opal and silver bracelet – just like the Small Blue Thing of the title – that we are commissioning. This bracelet will appear on the cover of the book and be given away in a competition, and it is therefore important that we get it just right and that it is true to the bracelet in the story. Commissioning a piece of jewellery is an exciting (and nerve-wracking) process, but we’ve now found the perfect opal, and have been working on finalising the design with our designer (pictured with sketches). Now she needs to get on and make it in time for us to incorporate it into our cover design! We are sure it is going to be a beautiful piece of very special jewellery and are really looking forward to seeing it in its final form.
