Zachary had already done a great job of photographing and designing his own cover for the collection. He has a wonderful sense of typography. His design gave me places to go when I began to work on the interior of the book.
The sea, and a subdued gray-blue I sampled from the place where Zachary's inverted sea meets the sky. Those made up my theme. I purchased the lovely woodcut-style illustration of waves you see here, then colored it that same blue.
The waves recur as scene break and chapter break images throughout the book, carrying the water theme all the way to the end.
The Bottom of the Sea is available at Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.ca, and all Amazon stores. I hope you'll read the sample and find out for yourself why people are so excited about Zachary Jernigan.
