Peter O'Connor is the book cover designer who created all three covers for my Secret Bunker Trilogy.

Peter runs his business via the website bespokebookcovers.com alongside his wife, Caroline.

If you go to look at the website I don't think that I've ever seen such a compelling collection of audio testimonials praising Peter's work and support through the design process.

I've experienced it first hand, and indeed left Peter a testimonial myself, so I was very happy to get the opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes when a new cover is created.

In this interview, Peter discusses the factors which help to create a fabulous book cover and advises on the things to do if you want to avoid some common mistakes with book covers.

A quick pre-podcast warning about the content in this week's show.

We are going to be discussing the writing of erotic fiction, so we will be using several words of a sexual nature.

We'll also be making references to pornography and the depiction of sexual scenes.

There's nothing rude or offensive in there, it's a sensible discussion about the topic from an author's point of view.

However, if you are easily offended, please skip this episode and join us again next week if you think that this one might offend you.

Coming up then - a discussion about writing sex scenes in fiction and erotic fiction.

If you're happy to proceed, enjoy the show!
