Wilkie Martin - Surviving Publication

Author of the unhuman series of addictive comedy cozy mysteries set in the Cotswolds. This documents my encounters with publishing and includes things I hope will be useful later. It also covers some local writing competitions and reviews some writing events.

Excited To Have New Covers For My Unhuman Series

I’m delighted my unhuman series of books has new covers for both the paperback and ebooks. I do, though, have a soft spot for the old ones as the designs of these incorporated some photographs I had taken (mostly in the Cotswolds and on Dartmoor) and also included some of my ideas, and I thought they were very distinctive. I’m sorry to see them go. However my publisher has decided that now there are 3 books in the series (so far), a new consistent approach is required that treats them as a series. I’m very lucky they commissioned the new covers from a top designer (who has done covers for Iain Banks, Alexander McCall-Smith, Roald Dahl and Wilbur Smith, amongst many others). I’m excited to see what happens next. I really like them and I got as excited waiting to see the proofs of them these as I did with the first ones. I hope you like them too.
