MOTHER AMERICA - THE COVER

The cover for my short story collection Mother America. Out June 4th. Woo! Big thanks to Inka for another fantabulous design job.



Happy World Book Day :) In honour of the day the Irish Times ran a feature on Saturday about neglected books. I recommended Martin Malone's historical novel The Only Glow of the Day in the article.

Wow, gorgeous, it's chillingly beautiful!

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Nicely put, Tania. I like that it is creepy and (possible, hopefully) will appeal to women and men.

Kind of creepy but in a very good way - I mean, the doll actually has a sweet face! Makes me sad more than creeps me out. The colours are just beautiful - it's very attractive to look at (can you tell I'm just thinking too much to process!?) Cannot wait to read, and so glad you got the image you were rooting for.
