I’ve been working on some covers lately that I really love. I’ll share them one at a time, so I can talk a little about the books as I go.
I am SUPER excited about Eddie Robson’s Tomorrow Never Knows (out July 2015). It came to us as an unsolicited submission, I took forever in getting back (as is typical, sadly – so many submissions for one person to read!), and, amazingly, not only was Eddie still looking for a publisher when I replied, he was also still excited by the idea of working with Snowbooks.
The novel is very much SF (and space-y SF, at that), but there’s a retro theme, as well (eg, Beatles songs are now hymns). The cover I first showed Eddie was straight SF, but he rightly pointed out that it could use some psychedelic elements to tie in with the story. We didn’t want to go too far in that direction, but I love the addition of the retro ‘shadow’ text!
