Well, it didn’t take long.
The folk who are designing the cover for Devil in the Wind have provided me with two options that are now my shortlist. See the spiel below.
Devil in the Wind – Cover selection
The next poetry collection to be put into book format (around May 2019) consists of poems that capture the voices of the Black Saturday bushfires that Victoria experienced ten years ago, as I heard them.
We are commemorating the anniversary of those terrible days right now, as I write.
Savage wildfires are, sadly, becoming a feature of too many countries around the world. In Victoria, already a decade later, I believe we are still experiencing a form of post-traumatic stress disorder.
The poetry collection that I have in the works as my own commemoration of Black Saturday is to be called Devil in the Wind, and I am at the stage in its development where I have two principal cover designs – pictures and words – that need to be considered and sorted.
I would be grateful for your assistance. Comments on the images, and the the text and the layout will all be appreciated. I’m interested in your thoughts on what might be the most effective representation to put before the public.
Are you interested in being an early reader/reviewer for Devil in the Wind?
I’m planning to make available some free e-book copies of the collection as Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs).
There’s no obligation, but my hope is that readers will be prepared to let me know what they think and will consider leaving an honest online review of the book at Amazon or Goodreads.
My thank you will be randomly select two ARC readers to receive an inscribed copy of the paperback.
Thanks for your help.
