What do you think of “The Wild Folk” cover?

The Wild Fol cover

What do you think of the concept cover for my new novel, “The Wild Folk”? Please leave a comment below, c’mon, c’mon.

I love it. I’d like an embossed print copy immediately so I can fondle that fur and sea rock.

For 3 years I’ve had the characters in this book talking at me, nagging, laughing, whispering amongst themselves. Now, with the release of The Wild Folk next week I can breathe a sigh of peace.

Prepare for Lorna, Lachie, Malky, Aunty Ruby, Kirsty, Johnny and all the rest of them to be unleashed upon the world. I hope you’ll enjoy what they have to say as much as I did. Ah, the wild ones.

– Or as the publisher would have it in the blurb:

“Some folk are born wild. Some have wildness thrust upon them.

When Lorna discovers the body of her childhood friend, Lachie, tangled by the tide on a Hebrides beach long-submerged family secrets and murderous truths rise to the surface threatening to wash away everything she holds dear.”

Love or loathe? Likey? No likey? Let me know below.

    I love the colours! Wolf-on-rock is a most agreeable aesthetic combination.
    Just to be thorough, though, I took a copy and converted it to B&W, saved that as a high-quality .jpg and put it on my little e-ink PRS-T1 reader to see how it would show up to people using older Kindles or other e-ink screens. Alas, you can hardly tell what’s going on once so much of the detail is removed… but so what, it’ll look great on a Kindle Fire or an iPad/iPhone.

    Looking forward to it! Let us know when it’s out!

    I love the colours too! You are most excellent for checking how it would look on e-ink screens! Thank you so much Cleodhna! I guess all colour and nuance is lost. I was thinking this might be the case when it appears as a tiny thumbnail online. Hmmn, hopefully very dark, blurry cover is attractive in its own odd way. You are marvellous, I’m very grateful to you.

    So excited. I love the title and the cover – it’s earthy and mysterious.

    The vibrant browns and light blues of the rough, earthy sea rock is a dramatic contrast to the greys of the soft, fur. The books title is a creative, swirling script which is complemented by the clean author name font. Yet both are crisp with the simplistic colour scheme. I love it, well done :-)
