The Orchard Cover 3

Posted by Gene Head on May 9, 2020 with No Comments

Trying hard not to drink tonight. A Saturday bloody night, of all things. Five days straight now. Climbing the walls. Wasting time making mock book covers for The Orchard, like this one. Can’t write. Feeling angry. Feeling weak. Angry/weak.


Impossible to be creative when you feel like this. It looks more like a European DVD cover or a French film festival poster than a book design.

Elmo’s Women

Posted by Gene Head on May 9, 2020 with No Comments

Well, we made it. We are officially living in Mooloolaba, on the Sunshine Coast. The place is quiet because of COVID-19 but in 12 months or so it’ll be bursting with tourists again. I found this postcard at a souvenir store on the main strip. Reminded me of the types of women Elmo dates, repeatedly. His current lady is named Sadie and she appears in the new book I’m writing, titled: SUPERCILIOUS! – She’s very much your quintessential Australian sheila. I bought the card for only .60 cents. Bloody ripper!
