New covers coming

pussycats

It’s over two years now since I did the covers for The Maker’s Mask and The Hawkwood War, and while I did the best I could at the time, I think I could probably do better. (Also, someone linked me to a ‘bad covers’ Tumblr and I thought ‘If The Hawkwood War ended up on there I’d just shake my head and say ‘Fair point”.)

So at some point soon the first two books will disappear briefly from the virtual shelves, only to reappear with new covers: I’m certainly going to make some changes to The Hawkwood War and I’ll probably fiddle a bit with The Maker’s Mask as well while I’m at it.

The one thing that I know some people have mentioned but that’s probably not going to change is the very basic two-colour spines on the Lulu editions: I know they look a bit plain, but there’s not a lot I can do about that unless I start tangling with Lulu’s advanced cover options, which means making sure I get the bar code in the right place and to the right scale and a whole lot of other things I’m not confident enough to deal with right now.
