Final Cover Design For ‘The Island At The End Of The World’

22 Oct

It’s been a while since I posted anything here, and that’s primarily because I’ve been struggling to get the third book in my For Those In Peril series of post-apocalyptic survival/zombie novels finalised for publication. The publication date was originally set for the 21st of September 2015, but due to problems with formatting the Kindle ebook edition, it’s now going to be released tomorrow (the 22nd of October) instead. This means that for three days, starting tomorrow, I’m going to be posting first-look extracts from The Island At The End Of The World on this blog.

In the meantime, I thought I’d take the opportunity today of posting the final cover design. In some ways, of the three books, this is my favourite cover. Partly because it’s relatively understated, but also because the island featured on the cover formed a major part of the view from my Grandparents house, situated as it was high above the sea on the west coast of Scotland.

So, what does the final cover look like?

Well, here’s the front:

And here’s the back:

And this is the full cover design.

I have to say, sitting on my shelf next to the previous two books in the series, these three covers from a rather nice set (even if I do say so myself!). And if you’re interested in reading the extracts from The Island At The End Of The World, which will become available tomorrow, watch this space!

From the author of For Those In Peril On The Sea, a tale of post-apocalyptic survival in a world where zombie-like infected rule the land and all the last few human survivors can do is stay on their boats and try to survive.

    Congratulations Colin, the cover is beyond fantastic. Might I add that the red color speaks volumes, perhaps a hint to the conclusion?

      Thanks. You’ll have to wait and see as to whether you think the red colour provides a hint to the conclusion of the book, or not …
