The cover for book one

Well, here it is folks. The cover to Part One of the book of Drachma (Laminar Flow). Now, after much consideration, we settled on the design that you see. The original of this was emotionally appealing, but represented a somewhat anachronistic scene, which would have been good as a cover to a Sherlock Holmes type of mystery. So what we settled on was this design, which shows a castle, as well as a  village, appropriate in time and location, and also shows faintly, in the background, a rotunda, which could represent a clock tower, or could also represent the hospital where Bob practices.

Now, in the upper portion of the cover design we see a clock face, indicating that time does play a role. And within the clock face is the number 1, which indicates that this is the first volume in the series.

Finally, as the publisher now has the second part, and we will be going through the editing process, as with the first volume, I have had to remove Part Two from the blog. As always, I'd like to thank my faithful readers, and I think you know who you are. I would especially like to thank a few folks in particular, namely Volataire, Alex, Maggie, and Diego Green for their helpful comments. And a particular note of thanks to Petite - you know why.



  1. Oh my God, it looks great!

    You go, Timothy! Congratulations on the cover, great job. I'll be looking out for this gem in the book shops.

  2. Oooh ... that is just so awesome! It will definitely stand out in the book shops Tim!

  3. Oh, Stories I meant to thank you as well for your ever helpful comments (I must be getting Alzheimer's). So thanks!
    And Petite, as ever, your input was so valuable.
    And when the time comes, I'll need to get your addresses (you may email them to me), and I'll make certain that you get a signed first edition.

  4. Very exciting! It looks great and I am looking forward to reading through this again in visible, booky form.
