I decided to celebrate reaching the campaign’s goal by designing the cover for the limited edition hardcover. I went with simple. And white. Of course, there’s still a lot of work to be done, but I just wanted to share it with you.
And, yes, I did change the title, mostly because some people might think it’s written in French, and those who do speak French were asking me why it was “la” instead of “les.” Well, it was kind of an inside joke, and you had to read the novel to understand it.
So it wasn’t worth the risk. I think “One Third of a Wheel” sounds kind of cool. Think of it as wordplay on “the third wheel.” Or me being too dumb to figure out a proper title.
Anyway, a bit further down you’ll get to see the complete cover – well, as complete as a “spineless” cover can be.
I’m pretty excited about having a hardcover edition of one of my books. I’ve always wanted this, and now I was given the perfect opportunity to actually justify the insane amount of work required to do the formatting and cover design.
There are still 14 copies left. As you probably already know, only 30 copies will ever be printed, so if you want to get your hands on one of these limited edition, hand numbered, and signed by the author novels, you have to move fast. They’re available for sale here, and for just about 36 more hours. After that, you won’t find this edition for sale anywhere else.
P.S. The special offer I announced a couple of days ago still applies: for any contribution, regardless of value or selected perks, you’ll also receive an e-book copy of a compilation of essays on art and writing I will be releasing in a few weeks.
