And to have a chance of winning one of the first copies!
Designer Kate (also my daughter) is due to come and stay with us for a nice long visit bringing our new granddaughter for her first visit to the North Country Far. She will be doing all the design work on Bride of the Spear cover in exchange for some baby sitting!
Thank you to all who have commented so far: you have shown us that we are on the right track, but criticisms and suggestions have been noted too- especially about readability of the text. Here is the cover- front and back, in its newest incarnation (I can't desist from tinkering) - with cooler colours for the text- suggested by an earlier commentator!


  1. I like the new text colour, not because it is cooler as such, but because it contrasts better with the background than the previous yellow/orange text. It also nicely picks up the colour of the gown.

    Would it be possible to move the back cover text higher, so that more of it is against the darker part of the background, again for contrast? It tends to disappear a bit against the rocks.

  2. Thanks for your comment Carla- I am working on the back cover text at the moment, and yes, we will certainly move it up. Photographer Ian has said much the same. The rocks are also quite beautiful in their own right!
