Print run.

The proof copy arrived and, after one tiny fix which required going back to the typesetter, the actual print run is now in progress.

Tenderprint informs me that it’s just a matter of days till the Australian edition of Attunga arrives.

Back cover.

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.

A new milestone.

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.
