How Hmlynn.author started their book cover journey
Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin
Hannah writes in an eclectic mix of genres, however, all her novels are characterised by rich and vivid imagery and character driven narratives.
Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin is the first book in the Peas and Carrots Series by award winning author Hannah Lynn. The novel is also a finalist for the 2018 Wishing Shelf Award.
This is the story of Eric who finds out that his late father has bequeathed what should have been his son's inheritance to the local church. All that has been left to Eric is his father's treasured vintage Aston Martin, however it comes with a huge proviso. The only way to keep it is if he makes weekly visits to tend his father's allotment for the next two years.
Eric is forced to divide his time between his hectic city life in London with his wife and daughter, and the small rural riverside village where the allotment is.
Initially Eric looks for short cuts and quick fixes to get his own way, before ultimately coming to the realisation that there is more to life than pleasing the boss and fast-tracking your way to the top of the cooperate ladder.
Probably women 30-55, although the book would also work for men around the same age.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
Fun, with a clear sense that the book is humorous, but not ridiculous, Subtle emphasis on the Aston Martin aspect, but enough markers for the Peas and Carrots Series, The titles for each book are Peas, Carrots and ... so I want to be able to have ideas that can thread through the following covers. Designers should be aware that the winning designer will likely be asked to work on the other covers in the series. I have included the existing covers here, and designers should know that I do still fundamentally like the ideas in these versions, but I am looking for something much more professional and marketable. I am also happy to consider something with a slightly more masculine vibe, think Nick Hornby, David Nicholls. Love paper cut images, but not essential and only done really well.
