Revealing the Cover.

Too revealing? There’s a good solid reason; it’s based on the story. You’ll notice the guy is also revealed. In fact, all six characters who star in this new novel find themselves in a situation where clothing is a low priority, or certainly should be. After all, wearing the clothes they normally sleep in, they’re stuck on a deserted tropical island with few supplies, when they’re forced to abandon ship in the middle of a fierce Pacific storm.

The woman here is the lead character, and we see the story through the eyes of this resourceful, brilliant, honest, passionate, courageous, outspoken, beautiful, young person who does not suffer fools gladly. For the moment, I’ll leave the description at that, though the placeholding text on the back of this ‘work-in-progress cover’ gives a few more clues about the story.

I had my own idea for the cover and sent my publisher this rough sketch (those who know my photography will appreciate why I prefer to use that medium as a visual art form instead of attempting to sketch/paint!). To my delight, my supportive publisher, Fantastic Books Publishing, adopted the idea. In the hands of a proper cover artist, the basic concept is brought fully to life, of course.

The book will be launched in digital and paperback versions on 25th October 2021. I can’t wait! Watch this space for further details.

  1. Looks like a delightful book. Nudism is not an alien concept, so it intrigues me. Because of my eye problems, I am so far behind on my reading, but I may have to make an exception and dive into this one. Pun intended! Thanks for posting.

    1. That’s a real issue, Brenda. We can all take our eyesight for granted, but I’m constantly aware of the possible problems, as Valerie wears contacts without which she is effectively blind. Take care of those windows to the world.
      I hope you’ll enjoy my story!

    1. I empathise, Lynette. I have so many books on my shelves that remain unopened. It’s why when we’re ever in town and pass a book shop, Valerie will try to distract me with, ‘Ooh, look at that flying saucer!’. Doesn’t work, of course, but makes us both smile.
      I’ll announce on here when it’s actually available – my publisher is going to promote some pre-launch buying availability.
