My editor at Globe Pequot Press just sent the cover art for my new novel which is coming out next April, and here it is. Very evocative, as she said. I like it. Looks like a typical Oregon timbered mountain, appropriate for the story of a young Oregon pioneer woman caught in the changing winds of her time.
Here’s a smaller view for the overall effect. It’s exciting to see the book’s face. Makes it feel more real, like something I’ll be able to hold in my hands one day soon.
I also love those words “A NOVEL,” because I’ve been writing novels for a while, and I’m so happy to see this favorite leading the way for me in fiction. It feels as if the winds are shifting in the right direction. Cheers!!! 🙂
Oh Janet, I can just imagine how excited you must feel. I like the book cover very much, especially the “shifting winds” effect. Many congratulations on your NOVEL!
Thank you so much, Lynn. Glad you like it. I can almost feel the riffle of the pages.
Congrats and it looks great. If I had to make one suggestion, it might be trying looking at your name in a simpler font, perhaps the same font as the “a novel” is in. (love the addition of that too), especially since you write both nonfiction and fiction.
Best wishes and good luck. Let me know when it comes out and I’ll FB & Tweet it for you.
Thanks for the input, Debbie. Good to hear from you. And thanks for offering to help on spreading the word.
Congratulations, Janet! You’ve worked long and hard for this. Enjoy your success. Lovely cover.
Thanks so much, Debbie. Glad you like the cover. And I am enjoying. For sure.
Loved “A Place of Her Own,” and am looking forward to The Shifting Winds.” That whole settler history is absolutely fascinating. Great stuff! Hurry up, April, 2016!!
Thank you so much for commenting, Phil. Glad you liked Martha’s story and the milieu in which it’s set. Hope you enjoy the next. I’m looking forward to April too.
