How do you approach cover design?
I use 99designs where artist compete to provide a cover. I choose the one I like best.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read a lot of non-fiction about evolutionary psychology and the way our brains function, also politics and economics. For light night-time reading I enjoy thrillers.
In this travel memoir a young woman describes her adventures back packing through Africa in 1972. Join her in Egypt as she climbs the Great Pyramid of Giza and cycles to the Valley of the Kings. Meet the local tribespeople with whom she shares the deck of a Nile steamer in the southern Sudan. Visit the pygmies at the foothills of the Mountains of the Moon: an unpretentious and lively account.
