I'm an Irish author, living in the UK. My interests as expressed in this book is in bicycle touring, the religious history of Europe (especially that of Ireland and Scandinavia), the nature of pilgrimage and religious experience, cultural change, and mortality. This is my second book (the first was called "To St Petersburg With Love").

Descripción del libro
The book is kind of like a Bill Bryson in theme: it deals with a travel experience but looks at it in parallel to the history of Europe and how it has shaped the current culture in the Nordics. There is a strong emphasis on history in general, religious history, travel, cycling and camping, the nature of mortality, references to the Irish monks, Camus, Vikings, Hemingway (Death in the Afternoon), there are philosophical themes dealt with also. Much of what happens takes place under a blue sky, with some fluffy white clouds, as is typical in summer time Scandinavia. Milk containers, falu red sheds, norway spruce are referred to a lot in the book.

I would like a cover that suggests a cycle through Sweden/Norway/Finland. A road ahead, with nice countryside, mostly blue sky with light breaking through some clouds. A subtle reference to the celtic christianity, the vikings and/or Islam. A farm building in falu red would be good. I would like the font to be legible as a thumbnail image. This is a book like a Bill Bryson, it deals with both a present day trip and past historical events, and the story weaves between the two. (Shutterstock id: 149951372 is pretty close to what I am looking for. )
Lo que debe evitarse
I think it might be better to avoid images of a bicycle. I used a black karakum with pannier bags on my trip, but I think it is getting cliched to have a bicycle image included.
