Elizabethan London

Elizabethan London
Tyburn was an infamous execution spot west of London, used since medieval times. The Tyburn "tree" - a unique, multi-person gallows - erected in 1571 became a popular public spectacle, drawing crowds of thousands.Tyburn Tree blog is less blood-thirsty but hopefully topical, interesting and informative, if slightly bent to my personal topics of interest - books, writing, history, technology, with a smattering of politics and dash of pop culture, science and the downright strange. So "take a ride to Tyburn" and see what happens...

Jesuit Letter Cover Drafts

Everything happens at once.

No sooner do I receive the edited version of The Jesuit Letter back (laced and scarified with editor's cuts, slashes & corrections), then my designer drops the new cover concept drafts into my hands.

I was expecting maybe 3 to 5 concepts, and she came back with 15!  Admittedly a number of these are all variations on a specific concept but still, it was a cornucopia of concepts.

In the interest of aiding my decision, I thought I would throw these up on the Interweb and social media for direct feedback and commentary.  Let me know favorites, what you think, what works, what pops and what doesn't.  Any preferences, thoughts or helpful comments would be greatly appreciated!

By way of background, The Jesuit Letter is historical fiction, with a bit of mystery/thriller mix, set in Elizabethan England in 1575.

Here are the concepts:

Let me know what you think!  Thanks!
