Love my cover, just love it. I had wanted the subtitle to mention the Duke Parapsychology Lab, but the publisher wanted something broader and this is what they went with. It’s fine. The inside flap copy and the back cover will go into how the book is about J. B. Rhine and a group of scientists at Duke who conducted the investigations and experiments.
I love it because it’s so eye-catching, and graphically striking and I think it will get people to pick up the book, and I believe if they just read a paragraph or two they will buy it. It actually makes me think of the Invisible Man before ghost, but that’s a good association and the subtitle quickly makes it clear.
So, the book comes out in March, which is less than a year away! It feels like tomorrow practically, to me. Scared! Scared about what reviewers will say. Scared about what the scientific community will say (if they take note of it at all).
but of course I can’t wait.
At least I will be waiting in my can’t-possibly-be-cleaner apartment! The picture is a little dark, which makes my place look kind of dreary, but I was experimenting with taking pictures without the flash. It’s actually quite cheery in here.
