New cover for “Dart” is on the way.

For several reasons – all beyond anyone’s control (including mine) – the new cover for DART is still in the pipeline. But the good news is that I can offer a sneak preview right here, right now!

Here are three ‘roughs’ provided by the artist (whose name I will reveal when the final cover is ready to go!):

Roughs for new DART cover.

And here is the selected image with more work done, ready for tweaks and colour to bring it closer to the final cover:

Second stage.

I hope you like the way this is progressing as much as I do! For those of you who have already read DART, one of the interesting ‘tweaks’ still to come will be the introduction of pillars (yes – two of them!) as side borders for the image! If you have any thoughts on how to get the cover ‘just right‘ – feel free to leave a comment.

Keep a look out for further updates on the new cover. Also, once the cover is complete and DART is reissued in its new livery, you’ll find details on here of a reader competition which could result in you (wherever you reside) receiving a signed paperback copy, complete with new cover and a dedication of your choice!

A DART question:

When Lisa tells Dart that the Sylth think Descartes got it wrong – what does she mean? (Leave your answer in comments – no prize, just the kudos.)

That’s all for this post. As Dart would say: “Watch out for assholes!”
