Writing. Culture. Politics. Wandering.
I’m no expert in the use of Adobe Fireworks or Photoshop, and I must admit the laptop accompanying me on my current trip to be a rather extremely old one – but I thought I’d give it a try. Particularly after a recent blog post by Greta van der Rol on the topic.
On the side, I’m leaning towards changing the story’s working title from Coasting Quietly to just Coasting. Somehow it strikes me as not just simpler, but perhaps slightly more elegant. It may seem strange, and it does go against the more popular marketing instruments, but right now I feel that the cover should give an impression of setting, but less one of “so that’s the gist of it”.
Either way, I’ve come up with a basic idea for the cover, working out three options that have so far survived the recycling bin. Variations on a theme, but who knows. So, let’s have a look. The images displayed open the full version in a new window. Right now, I’m slightly leaning to version C. By all means, let me know what you think!
