Cover for Echoes Across the Blue Ridge

After many hours spent pouring over the photos submitted for the cover of the NCWN West anthology, this photo by Philip Sampson of Young Harris, Georgia fits the recommendations of our book sellers and others who insist this book will jump right off the shelves into hands of readers when they spy this cover. The reflection of the mountains in the lake echoes the scene and fits the title ECHOES ACROSS THE BLUE RIDGE, Stories, Essays and Poems by Writers Living in and Inspired by the Southern Appalachian Mountains.
The book was titled by the editor Nancy Simpson. The cover design is by Katja Holmes.
Glenda Beall is marketing manager and is already promoting the book. A list of contributors will be posted here very soon. Read poems from the book on the blog of Nancy Simpson.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the book will not be released until after the first of the year. Continue to watch this site for more information.

  1. Hello all, I do not have poems in the anthology, not environmental poems or other kinds. That comment, I think, is a glitch.

    There are some amazing poems in the anthology. I can verify that.

    See a list of contributors The list will also be published on this Netwest Mountain site.

  2. Nancy,
    What a beautiful cover for our anthology. I can hardly wait to hold a copy. Thanks for a great job, Nancy.
