PROGRESS OF THE BOOK

This page has been set up to let visitors to my website follow the progress of my book: Enid Blyton: The Untold Story, from cover design to printing.
The progress has been held up temporarily on two occasions. The first was to have a number of copyright issues resolved and the second, when the book was reopened to include, inter alia, a wealth of material discovered when the British Library put online 200 years of local and regional newspapers from its archives. Some of the chapters are now enlarged with the fortuitous finds.

________________________________

Aspects of the publication process now completed are as follows:

DUST JACKET DESIGN
Completed.

Here's the complete dust jacket design. On the left is the front cover and on the right, the back cover. Two companies worked to produce these wonderful designs: Chandler Book Design & 2Graphics. The first began the artwork and other, completed it. So credit will be given to both companies. These are definite images that you'll see when the book is published. The work on the wording for the blurb, that's often found on the sleeve, is now completed.

Do you like these designs?  Send me a word in the Contact Us page of this website and let me know what you think.
