Updated Family Magic Cover


I am SO EXCITED to show off the shiny updated Family Magic cover!

Created originally by the amazing Stephanie Mooney,  I asked my lovely friend Valerie Bellamy at Dog-Ear Book Design, if she thought she could figure out a way to bring the cover to life.

Did she!! I love the original, don’t get me wrong, but what she’s done has made it just a little shinier…  😀

So tell me what you think–do you like animated covers or does this just freak you out?

  1. I really do love the animated eye. It looks so spectacular. Such talent you know. I love it. I wish my copy did that. I’d turn it every way I could. Congrats on this.

    • Yeah, still working on how to make the soft covers work that way LOL 🙂 XOXO

  2. This is great, I love the animation 🙂
