brief book cover for Blackbird Has Spoken, a work of contemporary women’s fiction.
“I love your cover design thanks so much and hope to be in a position to commission another.”
“Fielding, the winner of our first eBook Cover Design Award, strikes again. His ability to imply layers of meaning with simple elements really sets his covers apart. Against the backdrop of photographic ebook covers, part of the appeal is the vitality of a hand-wrought design.”

When Phoebe’s husband announces that he would like them to start a family she isn’t at all sure that she feels the same. For years she’s successfully hidden her fear of becoming a mother but now she has to make a decision that will change her life forever and force her to come to terms with the untimely death of her own mother. This is a bitter sweet comedy drama of complex relationships, life-changing encounters and the realisation that being a mother doesn’t necessarily mean the same thing to every woman.
