"You said... I would see all the colours..."

The title is a line from the first story in the book, and today I revealed a little bit of the cover...

I've decided not to reveal the whole thing until launch day on Saturday, but those who know me well will hardly be surprised that red, teal and purple got to play their parts in the story of the book because they really are my favourites.

I'm trying to decide at the moment which stories to read at the launch, so far I've only definitely chosen one. I don't want to read too many, because why would people buy the book if they've already heard all the stories, but I do want to give a good flavour of what's inside. I'm slightly nervous because the audience is mostly very old friends and I don't think they appreciate how dark some of my writing is... Oh well, I guess they'll find out won't they?
