Cover Reveal: “The Strange”

Here it is! The cover of The Strange. 

And the print version:

The hand belongs to Kiran Ghatak, a new character who makes her first appearance in this book. Things happen to her hands, arms and wrists, so it seemed like a good motif to use for the cover. The actual hand is, of course, mine. I started with a picture of my hand:

 

Then I had to match the colours, fonts, and layout with the other books in the series.  Here is an early version. Far too dark overall! The image just didn’t “read” well.

Diseases and infections feature prominently in the story so it seemed appropriate to layer in images of infected lungs and viruses. These were some of the source images I used. Not so pleasant in their raw state, right?

The ebook of The Strange will be published on the 20th of November – watch this space, I’ll post a link. It’s the third in the series, but if you’ve not read the first two, don’t despair! Both The Babylon Eye and The Real  are for sale right now, 99c  each, so you can get up to speed before the launch 🙂
