Dark Odes coming.

Been a bit absent from blogging lately due to another house move and associated chaos, but I'm still keeping one eye on the doings in publishing world.

This article from The Huff on new titles for 2017 had me blinking a few times at how ghastly and depressing many of the synopses sound with "dark ode" themes and strange titles.

Several covers go for the disjointed Picasso-esque, dripping paint or street-art font that is almost a trade-mark now for "literary" novels, but there is something compelling about these three that might actually stir me to pick them up and read the blurb at least.
