Cover Reveal: Survival of the Ginnest by Aimee Horton

Cover reveal

When one half of the duo of VELVET MORNING PRESS– the lovely Adria Cimino- asked me to host the cover reveal for a new book VMP will be promoting- I said sure!

Then she sent me the cover and I cracked up. I mean, this cover can turn a frown upside down in a nano-second!

So sit back, prepare to smile and watch Aimee Horton’s cover reveal take place!

Are you ready?

Really ready?

Really really really really really ready?

Here goes:

Dottie Harris would really like to get a proper bump already, rather than just looking like she’s eaten all the pie.

Dottie Harris is building up to THE scan and hoping she doesn’t have to keep going out to “empty her bladder just a little bit” this time. Never has she felt more likely to wet herself.

Want to know more about Aimee Horton?

Aimee is from Lincoln, England, where she enjoys drinking gin and spending time with her family (and she won’t tell you which of those she prefers doing). As a child, one of her favourite parts of the summer holidays was to devour all the books in a little book shop in Devon. She continued reading at lightning speed right up until having children. She now reads with eyes propped open by match sticks.

Blogging and overusing social media was a way of keeping herself sane during the years of no sleep and crying (both her children’s and hers) and led her to realise that not only does she love to read but she loves to write… and even more amazingly (to her), people enjoy reading what she writes.

Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,

    Sorry T, you’re not Aimee! Saw the FB link from Aimee and was so excited to see the cover I didn’t pay attention properly to what blog I was visiting! Hello, anyway, nice to meet you!

    So glad you like the cover! We think it really represents how fun the book is. As I was reading the book, I kept wanting to “like” and “comment” on the posts because they were so funny and relatable!
