Covered up

Over time, I'm going to publish a few of my non-crime short stories. These are...well, hard call, really. I guess they're horror, although anyone who's looking for gore and repulsion will be disappointed. Weird fiction is probably a better description.

As they've all got something in common, I wanted to design covers which linked them all together. Lilies is already published, but I want to bring that into the fold so there's a redesign for that too. I've come up with the design below for Lilies and the next story to be published, which should give the idea. Any comments welcome, critical or otherwise. Each of the faded photos will have some connection with the story.

What do you think?


  1. I like them - nice and spooky, and understated. Good job, kidda!

  2. Yeah I like them, (although I did like the old Lilies too. Liked the black background vs. white flower.) Good idea to have covers with a similar theme. How many of these have you got coming?

  3. I've got six or seven candidates, but when I re-read them I'm going to decide whether or not I'm actually going to put them up. Will follow up with an collection of them at some point, I think, but not just yet.
