We are massive fans of Barrington Stoke’s amazing books, and we are also huge fans of Phil Earle’s brilliant writing, so when they got in touch to ask if we’d be able to reveal the cover to his Mind The Gap we jumped at the chance!
This stunning cover is designed by David Wardle, and we have a few words from Phil about the book (which sounds wonderful!)
“I have huge respect for fantasy writers, for their ability to transport readers into other mythical realms, but as a reader, it’s never done it for me.
I’ve always been obsessed with the stories that surround us in our everyday lives. The little nuggets of life that carry power, emotion and truth.
MIND THE GAP is something I’ve wanted to write for years, ever since I picked up a day old, free newspaper on the bus seat next to me. Hidden inside was an article that moved me as much as any novel I’ve ever read: an article that wouldn’t leave me until I turned it into a story of my own…”
If you like the cover, why not tell David and Phil on Twitter? David can be found at @boldandnoble while Phil is @philearle (and Barrington Stoke are @BarringtonStoke)
