What Do You Think?

You know I love you chaps (and chapesses). I love you lots. You are like family to me. And I value your opinions above all others. When it comes to PorterGirl-related matters, certainly. So I turn to you now with open mind and ears to ask your honest advice.

The PorterGirl books have been collected together (along with some bonus new material) into one big old trilogy and will be available just in time for Christmas. Needless to say, it would make the perfect literary gift for your friends, family and enemies and could also serve as a very classy doorstop. Your choice. Anyway, I have been sent the first mock-up of the front cover from my publisher and I’m just not sure.

The image is great and I like the black and white. I think my name in the hat is rather clever, although I’m not sure if such a lovely hat should not remain untouched. But the title – Trilog-Tea’ is the biggest sticking point. It is clever word play, but it sounds awkward to me, somehow. And it looks strange. But it is more imaginative than ‘trilogy’ or ‘collected works’ and such. I have looked and pondered and looked again until the words and image have no meaning and I still can’t decide if I love it or hate it.

So… what do you think?


    1. I am terribly fond of puns myself, but I prefer to use them sparingly. Even in the Alice books which I love to bits, excessive punning makes one groan after a while. Good luck with the book.
