My book’s cover
A slight deviation from the usual stuff in this blog entry, which is all about my forthcoming book “Time Travelling WIth A Hamster”.
Reason being, that the UK cover is now available for anyone to see on Amazon.com (rather than just being my phone’s screen saver for the past few weeks), and I think it’s brilliant. Two people have now mentioned that it reminds them of the cover of “The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-time”. (Naturally, i blush even to have mine mentioned in the same breath, even if it’s got nothing to do with the contents of the book.) I’m not sure if they are alike, but perhaps it’s the white-on-blue thing?
Anyway, it’s by a very talented artist called Tom Clohosy Coyle, and you can see more of his work here http://www.tomclohosycole.co.uk.
I don’t mean to sound smug or anything, but seeing a book I have written coming together like this has to be one of the most exciting times of my life, up there with getting married, having children and learning to like beer.
There is no guarantee, of course, that anyone’s going to buy it, or even like it. But somehow, at the moment, that doesn’t seem to matter so much.Back to blog
