Dowser Series: new book covers

November 8, 2017

I contacted Elizabeth Mackey about doing a book cover for the upcoming Dowser 7 last week. At same time, I mentioned that I’d been thinking about revamping or rebranding all the covers, but that I was hesitant to do so because the books had done really well with the lighter, simple covers.

Then I just left it with her – no guidance or specific image ideas or anything. And Elizabeth, with her killer eye and sense of all things graphic design, decided that an extreme rebranding probably wasn’t necessary but maybe the series just need a tweak, a freshening. A bit more depth and little more magic.

This is what she came up with. And I love it.

You know my favourite part? Well, of course you do … MORE CHOCOLATE!!

I’ll be rolling out all six covers over the next couple of days. And soon … so soon now, it will be time for the cover (and title) reveal for Dowser 7!!

    Wow!! I must admit, I didn’t think I’d like the idea of changing the covers but WOW. Still simple but a subtle hint of drama. Love it !!

      Elizabeth knew just what to do! Just a little extra icing on top. 🙂

    I love it. Still simple and endearing. It definitely screams dowser to me, but then I have read them all 😀 and am anxiously awaiting 7.

    ❤️🍫 Love the new design! Magical but a bit darker. (There’s no cupcake emoji! I never noticed before! I’m writing a letter) Great work Elizabeth

      No cupcake emoji is seriously annoying! 🤣 so glad you like the new look.

      Subtle enough to not be too jarring. 😊

    I am excited about the cover but I just want to know when the next dowser would be out!! Please please let it not be too far in the future. Read all the oracle series and the reconstructionist as well. Everything in order, now waiting for dowser 7….

      I don’t have firm release date for Dowser 7 because I have a feeling the holidays are going to mess with everyone’s schedules. But once I know, I’ll put up a preorder. Promise.

    Awesome Meghan, looking so delicious I want to lick the screen. Can’t wait for the next iteration.

    Okay, I have officially read the entire series through a second time, starting tonight on the last Reconstructionist book to finish off the whole loop. By the time I finish this one, hopefully Dowser 7 will be crossing the finish line soon. What fun it’s been getting to know everyone again. I noticed so many more details and hidden meanings this time around! I highly recommend re-reading if you can. Lots of fun.

      So glad you enjoyed the series(s) the second time through!!
