The Clown's Graveyard needs a cover and well, hopefully this above photo will make it till the end. I just emailed the artist to ask for permission to use the photo for our cover. Crossing fingers for the time being.
Actually we originally thought about another photo for the cover but with the release of The Clown's Graveyard scheduled in less than 2 weeks' time, and the "non-replies" of that artist, we had to give up and quickly look for something else.
And we think that this photo above fits in just right actually. Possibly catches the novel's soul better, as well!
Cover design is really cool but it's also associated with a lot of pressure. Obviously, a book is judged by its cover first and foremost, in particular if the author isn't too well known or is a newbie. Consequently, if the cover isn't attractive enough, well…
The cover design of The Clown's Graveyard is more or less ready and we're only awaiting permission from the artist (as I mentioned above). Maybe we should have first emailed and asked for permission to actually use the photo before investing time and energy in the cover design. Indeed, if the artist doesn't grant us permission, we'll be in a bit of fix. But, you know, we're really excited right now.
