    • It’s funny you mention that — I had thought about how a silvery gray would match Scotland’s overcast skies and mysterious fogs πŸ˜€
      In print, silver could look more like grayscale, and I was concerned it might appear bland next to the others. It’s fun to have shared the same idea, though!

  1. Hi,
    For book #7, I think you should make the cover a brighter purple because usually you always do two of the same colors in a row. For example, Summer of Suspense and Peril on Providence Island are almost the same color.

    • That’s very observant of you, John! πŸ™‚ In a way, Prisoner and Iceland share continuity because of the green element in both.
      Brighter purple might feature in the future, though!

    • Well technically, my sister had a dream that the next book would be Pink and be called “Eagle’s Escape”. Now that I think about it, that could go with the whole falconry idea…

  2. Perhaps a cool green/light green? Maybe neon green….you could do a turquoise-light green blend, kind of like you did with Iceland Intrigue.
    Something mysterious and misty sounds cool. You might could do silver, black, and blue, or silver with 2 different blue-tones, or even dark browns and light blues….or something along those lines. just suggestions:):)
    I think you’re doing a fantastic job, and whatever colors you come up with will be awesome!!:D:D

  3. My sisters think it should have some pink. I really like how Iceland Intrigue had two contrasting colors on the cover….purple and green. It looked really neat.

  4. What about a dark, forest green, highlighted by a chestnut brown for a book color? Just a suggestion.πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

    • That sounds like a nice transition from the cover on Iceland Intrigue. Burgundy might even be a good shade to use in place of brown to brighten up the book cover.πŸ˜€

  5. I think the only color left is pink, but I tend to think of books’ color based on what they’re like, not from the cover, so I’m not sure what color it should be! I’m looking forward to reading it! πŸ˜€

  6. I liked the idea of dark green and brown, burgundy was a good idea too. They kind of reminded me of Scottish plaid… What about a heather color? Pinkish purple against a dark green and maybe that dash of silver that you had in mind? I noticed that all of the books have silhouettes on their covers, which might make the heather color hard to fit in.

    The design I have in mind would be the silhouette of a castle rising out of a silver fog with some heather in a valley at the base, and a falcon flying above the outline of a person. This is me unashamedly dreaming…

    Thanks for everything you do! And thank you so much for letting your readers put their “two cents” in (as the saying goes).

  7. There are lots of good thoughts here! Some of them are similar to the current colour ideas for #7, and some of them *may* weave their way into the final look. Let’s see when the time comes!
    Thank you all for participating πŸ™‚

  8. I think a lavender/gray or maybe lavender/gray/misty blue would be ‘awsome’ as Seth Wilbur would say.Lol. You havn’t used yellow.
