Header Picture

You'll see the header picture has changed (as has the link which will now take you through to my virgin website). However, the row of books there are my old covers. Does anyone fancies creating another header picture using my new covers? The advantage for me in someone doing it is that I don't have to spend time playing about in paintbrush to do it. The advantage for any reader that does it is that I'll spend more time writing the next book or post about writing...

Check your mail Neal. Threw something together during my lunch break. Might not be to your liking though...

Neal Asher said...

You're a star. I hope your books haven't been lost enroute!

Crusader said...

I hope so too! They give an estimate of 56 days before delivery so I'm not quite worried yet.

My (belated) effort:

Oops, I think you've been outdone, Crusader. Duracell's one has a nice frame round it and everything.
Cheers Duracell!

Crusader said...

The HORROR! Frames are so last century...

:) Joking aside, I like Duracell's version better. Mine was a slapdash effort thrown together in a couple of minutes.

I might ponder a more creative alternative (more likely not!)...

Nice one Jebel. Different approach. I like it.

Ahah, just like with the book marks: lots of IT guys, or other people sitting before computers in offices, all doing things they shouldn't be doing at work. I've just incrementally dropped the world GNP. Again.

Sheesh! You'll have us writing your books for you next! :P

PS I'll do the toilet humour. What do you mean there's no toilet humour in the Polity?
That's a point, how do they poo in the future, I don't think you've ever mentioned it :P

Neal Asher said...

Well, with the situations my characters generally face, they poo in their trousers.

Hi Neal. Long time reader/fan, and been following your blog for a while: I would love to knock up a short animation for you to put into the image place as a animated gif or flash file: have you got a copy/link to the best quality/biggest copies of the artwork for your book titles that I can work from? Cheers

If you track back through here, Nick, you'll find the pictures I provided for the bookmarks competition. Alternatively you can flick through Jon Sullivan's 'Gallery' to find ones with better resolution, or just send me an email (bottom of my biography here).

If frames are so last century then animated GIFs are so last millennium!

I know the initial instance of an animated image is often one of wonder and 'ooooh' but please, don't make us look at the thing every time we come here :) Animated GIFs and Flash have killed sites faster than Jain would.
