In one month (Feb 23) The Detective’s Guide to Ocean Travel by Nicki Greenberg will be out in the world! I’m a sucker for a good whodunit, and these characters and setting are fantastic. For me, creating the cover was as much about trying to convey the reasons I loved it as anything else, and it was the absolute highlight of my career thus far.
The first middle-grade novel from award-winning author Nicki Greenberg, this book is a classic whodunnit mystery set aboard a grand ocean liner in the 1920s. With first-class glitz and glamour and a deliciously plotted intrigue featuring an uppity stage star, a missing diamond, a leopard and a loveable cast of child sleuths, The Detective’s Guide to Ocean Travel is an exciting romp on the high seas, perfect for fans of Murder Most Unladylike and The Good Thieves.
Thank you to Meg Whelan at Affirm Press for being an incredibly supportive art director throughout the creation of the cover. Process post to follow at some point 🙂
