The cover takes shape.
I am extremely fortunate to have Stephanie involved in the design of the book cover. She took my initial suggestions, politely ignored those that didn't make sense, added some inspired ideas of her own and came up with a first draft that blew me away. We've been tweaking ever since and are close to finalizing the front. Hopefully our combined visions have produced something that will catch the eyes of casual browsers. The process has not only been exciting, but has brought home the reality that the publication date is drawing ever nearer.
