August 2016: Book covers

In October Keel and Drift, my third collection of poetry, is being published. Emily Fletcher is the cover designer. She’s provided about 6 different designs, and there are opinions about all of them! The discussion around covers is interesting: what cover will make a person pick up the book in a bookstore, how does it reflect the nature of the book, will it appeal to a range of readers (important for this book), and which cover do I love? The problem is that I love several. Emily is a great designer. Wait and see which cover makes it through!
