Cover of 'Nude'



This is the cover for my new short story collection Nude due out in September from Salt.

The cover image is by talented young American artist Rachel Manconi. Thanks to Rachel for permission to use her image and to Jen and Chris of Salt for ensuring a great cover for my book.

Excitement!

It's lovely, Nuala, you are in very good hands. I like almost all the Salt Books that I have seen.

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Thanks Eimear and Petina
Salt have been a pleasure to work with. Not only are they incredibly nice people, they keep you involved in the whole process of the book. They are very thorough.

Nuala, congratulations ! She has the best eyebrows and cheekbones and somehow makes you want to know more about what's inside - the book and her mind.

That's a fantastic cover. You must be very proud. Congratulations, and may it sell by the box-load :)

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Cheers Johanna. I'm hoping for that too!

Nuala, Just checked on Amazon and the cover image isn't up yet. Seems like a missed opportunity to show it off - and help sell the book.

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...
