Here is the cover for my novel The Loneliness of Moony Moore.
I designed it from one of my original photographs a few weeks ago and feel able to share it now. I wanted something that suggested ghostliness, without being too obvious.
The image is my own, taken a few years ago when I was dabbling in photography with a Nikon D90. Amazing what some burning incense and a glossy background can do.
The website Canva helped me bring it all together. A great website with plenty of templates to get you started. Paid images can be purchased to improve your design or as I did you can add your own.
The novel itself is going through it’s first edit. A daunting task that requires fleshing out the bones of the story and rearranging the time line. I hope to have around sixty thousand words by the time it’s ready. The main difficulty being that I have slowed down considerably what with the approach of Christmas and the end of NaNoWriMo.
The novel is the story of the good life of Moony Moore, the bad things people do, the nature of the dead, and the patterns of life.
If you’re interested in the development of a new type of ghost story, then please follow. Over time I will be including character profiles, back stories and teasers to the main novel.
