Mountain of Whispers
Posted on January 3, 2010 (Subscribe to Blog)
I finally decided on a title for the third and final book in the Island of Fog trilogy. Actually, the title sort of decided itself. The story heavily features a mountain, so I was leaning towards "Mountain" from early on; it was the other part of the title I was having trouble with. In the end, "Whispers" made a lot of sense for various reasons, so "Mountain of Whispers" it is.
Armed with the new title, and with the chapter summary fleshing out and taking shape, I now have a very clear vision of the mountain, so I've gone ahead and created the book cover too. Does it seem strange that I would put a book cover together this early on? Maybe. On the other hand, since I know the story already, having a book cover actually makes it a little easier to set the scene. It's either that, or I set the scene and then try to find a suitable cover image!
Being a website designer by trade, it's only natural (to me) that I register domain names for my books. They just point to the relevant book detail pages on this website, but sometimes it's better to use the domains because they're shorter and easier to remember. Therefore:
You'll see that this goes to the book detail page on this website, and that the Mountain of Whispers page is obviously very sparse at the moment. But I'll keep it up to date as I go.
Edit: I no longer use individual domains for all the books in the series. I just use islandoffog.com.
What a beautiful cover! Good luck with finishing the book, Keith. :-)
A great atmospheric cover, Keith. A fantastic title too!
Thanks! But I don't need "luck" to finish the book, Ming... just time. Lots and lots of time.
That title rocks, Keith. It will remind readers of Enid Blyton's Mountain of Adventure and that will certainly and definitely rub upon the book's popularity.
