A Cover Story

It is time I devoted a blog to promotion of my writing etc.

Full Darx Circle Cover (with Darxd and border linked) 210514

     Here is the provisional cover I have evolved for my latest epic, Darx Circle, undergoing final edit. Of course, by modern design standards it is far too ‘fussy’ and completely out of vogue. The publishers will almost certainly impose a different version. Sad, because this is the style I like, and which attracts me.
      Compare some of the evolutions of the covers for Terry Pratchett fantasies:

Mort Old

Mort German

Mort New

     I loved all that was ‘happening’ on the originals. To me the simplified versions don’t have quite the same appeal. What do you think?
