A wealth of ideas…

I crept past the 250-page mark with “Pilate” over the weekend – things are progressing very well, but if I’m to save Lawrence from contracting some exotic disease, I really must get a move on! The rain today will help – I love writing on rainy days 🙂

Meanwhile… back to the cover design for “Wytch II”. Do you like the photo? A comment I received on the weekend suggested the witch character in the background of the second draft wasn’t nearly as imposing as it could be. I agreed, and with that in mind, went surfing this morning…

I thought something like this, to show the sheer gloominess of the forest…

and to give some perspective on size…

Then, for the witch figure in the background, I got a little crazy…

But then, on the other hand, if we are going to stick with the current design, I thought it important to have either the witch or the forest reaching out to grab the boy in the foreground – so I went looking for some arms. I’ll leave you with these…

gg… over and out!
