Bye bye, Bunny.

Iris Chacon’s family comedy, SCHIFFLEBEIN’S FOLLY, is sporting a new cover these days.

The new cover features the startled face of Lloyd Schifflebein, whose teapot makes sarcastic comments at all the wrong times. It’s like having Don Rickles doing his act in your kitchen.

Artist Fiona Jayde of Fiona Jayde Media designed the new cover.  Ms. Jayde also designed the original covers for two other Iris Chacon novels, Finding Miranda and Sylvie’s Cowboy.Schifflebein'sFollyFinal-FJM_ARE_200x300

The change in cover design was prompted by comments by several UK publishing industry veterans who reviewed the novel as part of the 2015 Wishing Shelf Book Awards. The novel scored 9 out of 10 possible points in categories of content, style, and mechanics, but every reviewer said they disliked the cover or felt it did not fit the story.

Time will tell whether the facelift will lure more readers to check out SCHIFFLEBEIN’S FOLLY for free on Wattpad.com or purchase their own paperback or ebook version of the novel.
