The Cover: The Head and Not The Heart

I’m a bit of a do-it-yourselfer – must be the farm life – so when it came to creating this book, obviously I couldn’t trust anyone else. Professionals? I scoff at professionals. I am a professional everything. 

And so after two very late nights teaching myself the wonders of Gimp, the world’s most poorly named computer program, I designed this as the cover for The Head and Not The Heart.

In searching through thousands of images looking for the one which would convey the right sort of feeling, I found a lot of really fun potential cover images, so I suspect I shall grace the covers of my own books for years to come!

    Wow, it really catches the feeling of the book – at least what I read so far. I stayed up late and had to crash about 1/3 of the way through. 😉

    A bit brown, or should I say bay, but that may just be the blog background.

    When will it be available to the general public? (I’m guessing the answer is something like, “when it’s ready?”)

    • It is very brown, but I experimented with color and brown turned out to be the right choice.

      It will be available this week; I’ll update you, but I expect to upload it Tuesday and then it can take a day to be available in all the stores. It will be in formats for everything from iTunes to Nook.
