The back cover

Image There are so many things to learn as an emerging writer. One of them is how the back cover of your book will look like. I was quite happy with mine at first but, after seeing the book competing with others on a virtual shelf online or in an actual bookshelf in a store, I now feel that I could have done more about it. Like, I could have used a longer blurb or provided an extract of a poem, or put a more graphic and colourful slide or quotation. Such is life, I say, and it’s part of the decisions one crucially makes in a creative pursuit. There’s always the next book to make up for it (or, indeed, in a second edition). For now, the back cover of NOT POEMS, JUST WORDS, will be as simple as this.
