I: Print Edition Cover Final


I meant to post this earlier, but have been quite busy getting ready for the launch of "I" next Wednesday. This is the final "grunged-up" layout for the print edition cover, as opposed to the "clean" version posted earlier.

The image is intended to depict the "Brotherhood of Men" mural painted on the walls of the Hall of Justice by the Home of Artists, a propaganda wing of the City Council. As such, I felt the shapeless, faceless "men's room" emblem was the ideal choice to represent the mindless mass of automatons that populate the City of Ayn Rand's Anthem. "I" is the story of their liberation.

The first shipment of print editions arrived this week:


These will mainly be used as review copies and giveaways on Goodreads and LibraryThing for promotion purposes. If you would like to receive a review copy you can contact me through the link above. It is highly recommended, though not required, that you have read Anthem first. Review copies will be distributed at my sole discretion.

The print edition of "I" is distributed through Ingram, and therefore is available to order at any bookstore. It runs 251 pages (266 with front and back matter), at just around 122,000 words. Suggested retail is $12.95.
