This month, Michelle Argyle at Melissa Williams Design reimagines the cover of Hot Flush by Rosy Fenwicke.

Design Note 1: Showing a woman on the cover eliminates the question of whether or not the dog is the main character in this cozy mystery series. It also lets us add more details about the main character.
Design Note 2: The main character has some superpowers in this book related to estrogen, so I added the chemical makeup of estrogen in the sky to give a hint at this science-related story element.
Design Note 3: An illustrated cover potentially gives added freedom to include more overt superhero elements for future books in the series.
Design Note 4: Using a softer pink color palette makes it more obvious that the book is women’s fiction.
