Cover Version

As some of you may have seen from Kristin's mailing list, we now have a cover for Nerve Endings so are one step closer to publication.

Here is a draft version.

The plan is for this to be printed straight onto the hardcover, so no paper jacket, with perhaps the white words debossed/indented. Still a few tweaks to do, and the spine and back cover need to be finalised, but we hope you like it.

It reminds me a bit of the Sky Motel artwork, although that wasn't the original intention. What do you think?

We will be producing 50 high-quality prints of the final cover which will signed by Kristin and numbered. These are still available to pledge for if you want one of them on your wall.

I really like it, it immediately reminded me of the Sky Motel artwork too. A typo jumped out: cathedral heat not hear.

Worry not, Andrew. We noticed that a while ago but were still keen to share it.

Thanks for mentioning it though.

It looks good, but is there any reason for the mix of upper and lower case letters?

 Scott Pack says:

Yes, Matthew, these are Kristin's preferred spellings. Everything in lower case unless the word is a proper noun, such as a place name or the name of a breed of animal etc.

I think it looks great! Love the colors - they reflect the range of emotions found in Kristin's words.

Is it supposed to be "cathedral hear" six lines below the line with the title in it? I remember a song called "cathedral heat" instead.
