Svetlana’s Garden is a story about a Moscow reporter who puts her life and love on the line to uncover state-sponsored terrorism. The author had been toying around with the idea for many years before finally committing it to text. He approached Deeper Blue after first attempting to do a cover himself. Unhappy with the results, he wanted to give his story a better chance of succeeding by having a professional cover done.
Deeper Blue agreed to come up with 3 ideas with a view to developing the favourite. The author had been on holiday in Moscow and had taken some photos using a model to portray his leading character. We wound up using some of those images in our layouts and created a composite from two for the final cover design.
Ivan is currently working on a followup novel and is midway through the first draft. We wish him the best of luck and look forward to doing the cover.
