While I've been waiting for feedback on my manuscript from a few readers, I have been toying with ideas for the book's cover. I got out a pile of beautiful reference books to inspire me while I did a couple of sketches of a concept I'd had rattling around in my head for a while. The following day I scanned my best black and white drawing and painted it in watercolour to see how it might look. I have another version in my mind's eye that I want to get on to paper and hope there will be still more ideas to come before making the final decision as to what my book will look like. I'd intended working on it today but the day evaporated before I had time to get to it. So I'm off to cook dinner instead!
I was delighted to spot this baby goanna in my back garden the other day.
