WhiteFire publishing was thrilled to sign the prolific Melody Carlson for six books at the start ~ we had the privilege of helping her finish her Dear Daphne Series that had begun with B&H Publishing and then got cut off when their fiction line shut down, and we also contracted a WWII series called The Mulligan Sisters, which is still underway. Then we picked up 10 of her backlist titles, which all came out in January 2017. The result? So many books! And for Roseanna White Designs, that meant so many covers!


Melody was hoping to join the hunt but is one seriously busy woman, so I’m hosting the post about her WhiteFire books and focusing on those fun cover I’ve gotten to produce for her!


For the two Dear Daphne, we had to imitate the existing style and even recreate the series logo.



But for the new Mulligan Sisters series, we decided to follow the inspiration of actual era photographs that are in the public domain and colorize those for use in the background, inserting an image of one of the four sisters on each cover. Thus far we have the first two…

And then we got to re-envision the Whispering Pines series…



as well as a series of 6 stand-alones linked by the theme of Second Chances.
