The basic cover design and text is now finished and as soon as the catalogue information arrives from the National Library the book will be ready for typesetting.
I’ve added the back cover, which just arrived, under the front cover pic.
Thanks again to Luke of Working Type Studio for this design and all his help.
After the typesetting the next step is printing. Yay! Publishing is getting close.
My thanks also go to Sam Foster and Matt G for permission to quote their reviews.The back cover text is locked in and the back cover design almost ready.
Displayed above is the almost finished cover and spine for the novel.
All thanks go to Luke of Working Type Studio
for the design and clever representation of the three main story elements; humans, dolphins and technology (AIs).
My own idea of what the cover might look like was very different and the first sight of Luke’s concept was quite a surprise.
One look and you know this is a science fiction story.
One look and you have the feeling there will be action and drama.
One look and you know that dolphins are important.
My thanks go to Gabriel and Shaun for permission to quote from their enthusiastic reviews.
The text for the back cover of Attunga is now almost finalised.
Today I have been in contact with a graphic designer and a cover for ‘Attunga’ is now in the works. The artist has had experience in the scifi and fantasy area and after our conversation I’m anticipating a great outcome in the next two to four weeks.
At the moment the Attunga novel has been edited and is in the process of final proofing.
The proofer says it should be finished in the next few days.
After that the book cover needs to be designed before the book can be printed.
