This summer, my twin has a book coming out in hardcover. Please note that I said book, by the way, not novel; this isn’t a work of fiction.
Here’s a sneak-peek mockup of the cover:
The author’s name and the book’s title will be on the spine: Paul B. Spence, Thesis. (Actual title is An Analysis of the Features Found at Arena Ancestra, an Archaic Component of Arena Alta, LA 34307, but that’s only on the inside, not the cover.)
For fun, here’s a fake (and deliberately over-the-top) blurb, as if this were a work of fiction (which it very much isn’t):
On a new archaeological dig in northern New Mexico, brilliant and ruggedly handsome archaeologist Paul B. Spence braves harsh weather and questionable wildlife to find something none of his colleagues has ever seen before: evidence not only of the post holes from an Archaic period pithouse structure, but also the ashy remains of the posts themselves. Will the lithic debitage support the dates for the site, or will the stone flakes prove to be irrelevant?
The cover’s not much to look at, but there are some cool interior illustrations. 🙂
