I got to see the jacket for the novel this week. It's an emotional, disquieting event, seeing whether it lives up to your expectations, if it captures the themes and mood of the book. I think it's a wonderful evocation of an autumnal Dartmoor, the copper-coloured bracken and brooding sky continuing onto the spine and back. I love the crows converging and there are some lovely illustration touches inside as well. If you click the image it should enlarge.

There's more about it on my website, including a clever little 'countdown to publication' widget I made.
