Sneak peek at The Glass Jaw

September 12, 2010

Here’s a first look at the cover for The Glass Jaw. It’s the result of winning the John Newlove Award in 2009 and comes after a year of collaboration with Amanda Earl and the good folks at Bywords.

From the Newlove citation:

“From the startling metaphoric seize of the opening, the lines propel themselves full throttle, through sonic reverberations and imaginative mimesis,” wrote judge Stephanie Bolster at the time.

The Glass Jaw will be launched at the Ottawa International Writers Festival on October 25 at 6:30pm, where the next winner of the John Newlove Award will be announced.
