I’ve just arranged my cover design for my debut novel - due out this year.
It’s a detective story in a ‘furry world’ - I suppose you could call it ‘animal noir’, and somewhere inbetween zootopia and blacksad in tone. Its gritty but not particularly violent, and theres plenty of humor.
Within this community do you tend to prefer literature with illustrations? I know a lot of the work showcased on here are wonderful graphic novels etc riddled with pictures.
I do have a friend who has offered to illustrate but I’m keen to release my novel asap. I just wonder whether a story of this nature would have more punch if accompanied by piccies.
Its probably an upper middle grade story - but I think it will still appeal to adults too.
Any thoughts would be most welcome
