Help a Wombat out please?

My new (but ten years in the writing) book should become available for download on Kindle sometime next week. I haven’t finally decided on a title yet either, but you can see a couple of contenders below. It’s got talking animals, but is decidedly not for little kids. Think Magnificent 7 with fur. Here’s your chance to decide what it looks like.

I’ve designed four possible covers, but can’t decide between them. Would you PLEASE help me out here by voting for your favourite or favourites in the Poll box on the right there? I’ll be eternally grateful. Do feel free to comment, too, in the box at the bottom. Here are the possibilities (click on them to see a larger version):



Based on a photograph by my good friend and estimable Twitter stalwart @scyrene, I love the rabbit’s keen eye on this one.






The background is one of my own photographs adapted rather, and the rabbit is a doodle drawn by me when I was bored of proofreading. I enjoy the rabbit gazing off into the unknown.






A bit experimental, this one, with something of a nightmarish quality. An old photo of our pet rabbit filtered to hell and back. Stark reality, scared rabbit, unnerving, oh my ears and whiskers.





Another stunning @scyrene photograph, focused on the eye with a zoomy blur elsewhere. Smaller font, smaller rabbit looking a little bit lost.


About wombat37

A Yorkshireman in the green hills of Lancashire, UK Not a real wombat, obviously, or typing would become an issue. I do have short legs and a hairy nose, however. Oh, & a distinctive smell.

  1. I vote second, failing that, the first. Not big on the last two, too filtered and overdone. The title also bothers me somewhat but it's tough to think of another one, I get that.


  2. PLEASE let me know if you come up with a better title. I considered “The Quest” but then rejected it. Remember to enter your votes in the poll box top right, thanks.

  4. What do you think of “Warren Peace”?


  5. Would have to know more about the book first – but if the title fits,then it is a very good pun! I like number two best – numbers one and four are a bit cutesy, and number three is drab. Can't wait to buy – shame my kindle is black and white – when are you going into print? Oo – that is a point – what does 'b' look like in black and white?


  6. That IS a good point! *checks* Phew, not bad actually (although A looks better in B&W) – filtered B&W is better than pure greyscale, but I guess the Kindle will do what the Kindle will do.


  7. I like the first cover. Apart from the font. Please change the font.
