Cover for Locus Amœnus

lacoversmallHere is the final cover design for Locus Amœnus, which will be released at the end of April.   The novel is a dark comedy/tragedy, a revision of Hamlet set in rural upstate New York in 2009.  I requested a graffiti font for the tile to add a bit of irreverence to contrast the pastoral scene.  The designer chose to use a  bullet-holes-and-blood font to make it look like a thriller.  The story does involve an old murder, two accidental deaths, some bloody noses and an allusion to Shakespeare’s heap of bodies at the end of his play, but no one actually gets a mob-style hit in Locus Amœnus.

You can pre-order from Permanent or from Amazon at a  14% discount.
