Then Josie came back with her cover designs. We had a debate over a beautiful invented font - I loved it - but don't think it's right for this book. But I do love the general direction she's going in. Here's one of the variants - with the safer (period specific) font. Unfortunately Josie's off to India tonight (lucky lady) for the rest of this month, so it'll be on ice until then. What do you think?
Another reason today was a good day, was I managed to get properly stuck into the new book. Less than a thousand words - but they're the first thousand and I'm quite pleased with them. I'm wondering whether to post them and gather some feedback?... but I'm a bit scared.
