Interview with A K Lambert

How do you approach cover design?
I wanted to protray threat from afar on my cover. Grace, Mandy and Jon, may feel safe but they are not. I asked three of my kids to pose and pasted the photo onto an A4 sheet. I then trauled a load of old marvel comics and found a evil looking chap with spikes - head only and pasted it on. Sent to Tom Edwards and got the masterpeice that is the cover, back. I love this cover and have the next two books designed ready to go to Tom
