I want to extend special thanks to Stuart from Always Trust In Books for his fine work and dogged support of good books. Somehow he thought people might be interested in a bit more of 'The Fell Hound of Adversity', as well as the rambling and disjointed thoughts of its author. Check it out at his blog:
As a special treat I've added here a very rough example of an early book cover design, with the title font and everything this time. Note it is not reflective of the actual book cover quality, which is a sight more refined, and was produced by a more professional hand than mine.
